Semi-Gloss Photo Paper
A semi gloss photo paper balances the desire to print vibrantly colored photos with the need to produce photographic prints that reflect less glare, attract less dust, and show fewer fingerprints. Semi gloss photo paper is a great choice for colorful photo prints that will be frequently handled. The surface of semi gloss photo paper has a noticeable sheen but the prints don’t show as much dust or fingerprints as a glossy photo paper. View More
While the colors printed on a semi gloss photo paper may not pop quite as much as they do on glossy photo papers, the overall effect can look less more natural and realistic. Semi gloss photo papers are great for images that depict all sorts of people, places, and things. Because they reflect less light, they may also be preferable for maps, posters, and technical drawings that will be viewed under bright lights.
