Glossy Inkjet and Laser Photo Paper

Glossy photo paper is 'shinier' than matt photo paper, reflecting light well.

Glossy photo paper depicts colours more vibrantly and for many, glossy photos are the standard for colour prints that people are used to seeing.

Good to know

Glossy prints do, however, smudge more easily and pick up visible fingerprints and dirt. In situations where photos are going to be handled frequently, you may prefer to print on matt photo paper.
