Individual preferences vary from person to person when it comes to printing photos. While some people like the incredible detail and realistic images in matte black on matte paper, the glossy finish is preferred by those who like the richness and vibrancy that brings photos to life. If your photos are colorful and you want to keep them shining, glossy photo paper can be an excellent choice.
Professional quality printing is one of the reasons glossy paper is preferred when printing photos. In fact, you can print lab-quality prints right away at home or in the office, without having to wait long for the photo to dry and take on its rich characteristics.
