>> When I print off our passes will it wok to use a high quality, heavy, off white paper so that the passes are better able to survive the trip or do they have to be printed on standard white paper to scan correctly?
The SBB has guidelines for printing tickets, which includes the following:
"Tickets are valid only if printed in portrait format and 100% size on white A4 paper using an inkjet or laser printer. (Please do not print in draft/economy mode.) .... If you travel with a ticket that has not been printed out correctly you will be deemed to be travelling without a valid ticket and will have to pay a supplement."

I would expect these guidelines to also apply to print-at-home Swiss Travel Passes. I suppose it depends on whether your "off-white" paper is considered to really be white :-)
Personally, I would prefer to avoid the uncertainty. Why not print two or three copies of your Swiss Travel Pass on normal white paper, and keep the spare ones protected in your bag. If the one you are using starts looking the worse for wear, start using one of the spare ones.
