Silk is our recommended default choice for the very best results. It’s a coated paper with a satin finish and a slight sheen. Silk is suitable for print jobs containing text and pictures, makes printed colours appear bright and well defined, and is great for readability. If in doubt, choose silk.
Gloss is a coated paper with a high shine. Printed colours appear bright and vivid on gloss paper, making it ideal for displaying striking images and photographs in colour.
Unlike gloss or silk, this paper does not have a coating, which gives it a very soft finish. The ink sinks into the paper, giving the colour a more understated appearance. Uncoated paper is a great choice for stationary or postcards, since it’s easy to write on and has a prestigious look and feel.
