In Part 1 of this two-part series I discussed the standard paper options as well as the “upgraded” standard options offered by the various photo companies. In Part 2, I’ll be taking a look at what I’ll call specialty papers which includes photo paper, matte paper and gloss paper.
Matte vs. Glossy Paper
Another option is somewhere in the middle. Photobook America has a paper upgrade called photo lustre paper (currently however, it’s not in stock, so you won’t see it as a option when ordering – it should be in stock later this Fall according to the company.) It’s an interesting paper because it’s not photo paper, but it does have that look.
When would you choose upgraded paper?
