Matt Finish – Coated matt paper is the most popular for a silk feel. It is used for a wide range of printing from brochures and flyers to menus. It is easier to write on than gloss and does not reflect light. With the paper still being coated, it is not ideal to use for stationery.

Gloss Finish – Top choice, Gloss paper is used for colour printing and is a good choice for photo printing also. It is smooth to touch and shiny to see. However due to the reflective nature of the paper, it can show fingerprints more easily than matt paper. It is commonly used for posters, brochures and flyers. The high quality stock creates a very professional finish.

Bond Finish – A bond finish stock is usually chose for the advantage of easy writing on as this is an uncoated stock. Uncoated paper is exactly what it sounds like – paper that has no extra coating or paper finishing.
