About Paradigm Copy Services

We have a full range of services to assist with your printing needs.

When you use Paradigm’s online copy service we strongly suggest converting your file to a PDF to ensure your file prints the way you intended.

PDF files are a very good way to keep all your fonts, graphics and page formatting in one file and should print out the same on most printers.

Before submitting a file in its native format for printing, please review our
File Submission Guidelines for more detailed information. There is no need to review the file submission guidelines if you are submitting a PDF file.

Full-Service Copies:

When you need consistently high quality copies in a short amount of time, look to our knowledgeable and efficient employees to complete each job to your exact specifications. Because we know the finished appearance of your copies is important, we use the highest quality bindery materials and equipment.

Our copiers are also high-speed digital scanners; from which we can create archive-quality scans of your documents. PDF is the most popular, but other file formats are available. We will name the files the way you prefer and copy them to the media you specify. Your scans may also be indexed for easy searching.

Self-Service Copies:

Self-service machines are also available for quick walk-in use any time we are open. Our networked copiers allow printing of your files from one of our self-service computers to any of our copiers including our color copiers.

Bring in your disk, portable drive or access your online accounts and print directly to our copiers. The copies you make may then be bound or finished the same way we would with full-service copies. We also offer discount self-service copy and transparency cards for pre-purchase.

Paper Colors and Types:

Our standard white paper is a 50% recycled (30% post-consumer) 20 lb. bond, our color and premium papers vary in their recycled content and weight. We also stock plain and glossy 24, 28 and 32 lb. white paper for any job that requires a higher weight sheet.

If you desire a paper color or type other than one in our current selection, please visit our Contact Page. We have a much greater selection from which we can order and can match most papers you may have on hand. Please allow 2 days order and delivery time.

We also offer the same colors in card stock (a heavier weight paper suitable for covers).

Color Paper and Card Stock:





Tape Bind Color Options:

These color options are only available for the spine of a Tape Bound book.
If you would like text printed on the spine of a Tape Bound book please let us know in the special instructions of the order form.




Premium Papers and Other Media:

Premium papers are a heavier weight than our standard white and color papers.

The bond/text weights are listed under "Weight". "Finish" refers to the texture of the paper.

All premium papers are in stock and may be available in card stock (a very heavy weight) and

Note on wide format paper types and sizes:

The paper/media used in the wide format printer will be determined by the type of print you want to create. Popular choices include: luster or glossy for photos, matte poster board or adhesive synthetic for signage, semi-gloss or water-resistant canvas for banners and texture or velvet for fine art.

Your wide-format prints may be laminated for protection. We will punch grommets into banners for easier hanging.
