Matt Photo Paper: Old photos were often printed on matt photo paper, and black and white photos look better when printed on a satin or matt photo paper finish. Matt doesn’t reflect light, so is easy to view under any light, however may not have the upmarket look and feel of gloss paper.
- Black and white photos – portraits or architectural images
- Sepia photographs and old family photos
- Artisitic landscapes
- Canvas effect photographs
Glossy Photo Paper: Today, people like a gloss finish as it looks and feels luxurious. Colours appear to be brighter and more vibrant. We associate gloss with quality – many upmarket magazines are printed on a gloss paper stock. Its what people have come to expect. However, gloss may be less easy to view in strong light because of its reflective and shiny surface.
- Bright colour photography
- Modern family portraits
- Photographic portfolio
- Wedding photos
Satin Photo Paper: is the perfect compromise between the two as it is less shiny and reflects far less light than gloss paper. You get the best of both: the gloss benefit of sharper colours, brightness and vibrancy, and the matt benefit of a photo that is easier to view under strong light.
