Paper Comparison

Whether you're looking for a specific feature, the best price, or just aren't sure what you want, we can help you find what you're searching for. Our papers do have one thing in common: they're all acid-free!

The photos shown below our wonderful examples of the gloss coating on each paper, though nothing quite beats seeing the physical paper for yourself.

This uncoated paper stock is comparable to the Silk but offers a flatter image that is ideal for text heavy color pages and those who are the most cost conscious. We definitely recommend ordering a proof copy to make sure you like the outcome compared to our other budget-conscious options.

This paper is the thinnest we offer, similar to the pages of a magazine. It is one of our most affordable options. Your images will have a softer quality to them, though it's certainly a great option if you're on a budget and still want outstanding printed pages! It's also the only paper available for mini books.

Our most similar Paper Stock to Apple Photo Books!

Our most popular paper, the Premium 150 is a classic choice and among our most popular papers. Lighter and less expensive than our Lustre 200, this paper has a slight gloss, great color reproduction, and is heavier than our standard Silk 120. Still an A+ option for both albums and books, we don't think you'll go wrong with this paper!
