Gloss: This coating gives a very nice finish and professional look for marketing materials or any other kinds of prints that want to show off the color. Book printing is the most common materials that use gloss paper, usually 70gsm or 80gsm for magazine paper

Matte: This paper is regular-based paper that's covered with a thin layer of ink or toner receiving coating. This coating means that every drop of ink that comes from the inkjet printer is received properly which makes for an exceptional, professional finish

Silk: Because silk printing paper is less coated than glossy paper, it is more resistant to fingerprints. It also doesn't produce a strong glare effect like gloss paper. This makes it a good choice for printing photographs or other images you want to be easily visible and not too shiny

Pearlescent: Add a touch of elegance with our pearlescent range, featuring a lustrous coating that catches the light beautifully. Ideal for special occasions, this high-quality selection is available in various sizes and weights to suit your requirements

Textured Paper: Elevate your designs with our textured paper options, including Hammer and Linen effects from the renowned Zanders Zeta brand. Popular for wedding stationery and bespoke projects, these papers offer a tactile experience that enhances any creation

Satin - Satin – (Also referred to as lustre, Semi Gloss or Pearl) – A soft sheen paper which is half way between Gloss and Matt. Matt – A totally flat finish with no sheen or reflective properties

Resin Coated - High Quality Resin Coated Satin The microporous layer is the superior coating used for inkjet photo paper. The coating has micro pores or nano pores (smaller pores than micro), which is based on silica or alumina, but in these days, the material is rare due to high cost. What is important is this coating can accommodate all types of inks, dye and pigment due to its pores, and also can cope very well with the particles in the pigment ink which “sit” well in or on the pores of the microporous coating. RC satin photo paper is almost always made with the top quality and PE Coated base paper. The main benefit of this base paper is to enhance the stability of the final products.
