When printing photos from personal computers, inkjet glossy photo paper is usually the first choice of many consumers. And for good reason! The shiny finish can give even amateur shots a professional and polished look, colors look vibrant and rich, and it reflects light well. But there are a few downers with with high-gloss papers as well: the shine may produce a glare in certain light settings, especially when framed in glass and they tend to collect fingerprints quite easily.

If you love the look of inkjet glossy photo paper but want something a little more balanced, you should consider purchasing Semi-Gloss or Satin Finish paper. This is a good middle ground between glossy and matte as it’s less shiny than high gloss, it reflects less light, it’s easy to view under strong light setting and fingerprints and dust are less of a problem. Inkpress makes a fantastic Semi-Gloss double sided paper. It’s microporous, 100% acid and lignin free, it dries instantly, and is water resistant. For high resolution printing this paper is ideal and it’s double-sided nature makes it perfect for projects like brochures, portfolios, greeting cards, scrapbooking, and making pre-press proofs.
