Paper or cover stock, usually made by laminating two sheets of paper, is known as duplex paper. Each side is different. Duplex paper may be a different color on each side, have a different finish on each side, or different textures.

This is not the same as two-sidedness which is a natural occurrence due to the papermaking processing. Duplex paper is intentionally manufactured for special effects. Some uses of duplex paper include book covers, greeting cards, and presentation folders.

Also Known As: double-faced | two-tone | double-sided | different-sided
