    I'm printing paper samples at work to demonstrate how different stocks (gloss, semi-gloss, silk, matte, cover, bond, etc.) look and feel.

    I need an image that is professional, semi-generic, and automotive/business in nature that would highlight the differences between different stocks of paper. It needs to be a high enough resolution that it can be blown up to 8.5x11"

    It will not be reproduced in any other way other than for this sample booklet. Does anyone have a picture they took that would fit the bill?

    Thanks in advance :)

    I'd be paying out of my own pocket for it, so I'd rather not.

    Edit: I'd use one of my own, but all I have are pictures of my dog and wedding shots and no time to go take any pictures of my own...not that they'd be too useful anyway :rofl:

    If it's for work, shouldn't they cover it? Or if it's your own business you can write it off. I mean do they really expect to sell their product by asking for free material to promote it?

    They should, but that's a different story.

    The picture isn't what's going to sell a certain type of paper...the paper is going to sell the paper, but we need something on there so it's not plain white.
