Photo Paper Types

We offer a wide selection of paper options.

Our paper selections are sure to suit your needs!

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. Order our Free Sample Kit to see all of our papers in action!

Matte 120

118 GSM This uncoated paper stock is comparable to the Silk but offers a flatter image that is ideal text heavy color pages and those who are the most cost conscious. Print and paper quality can vary based on order. The goal of this product is to make a book as affordable as possible, but it will not have the consistency of other paper. We definitely recommend ordering a proof copy to make sure you like the outcome compared to our other budget-conscious options. This is the paper previously known as Express Satin and Economy 120.

Silk 120

118 GSM This paper is the thinnest we offer, similar to the pages of a magazine. It is our most affordable option and 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.

Premium 150

146 GSM 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!

Lustre 200

190 GSM Have an album or want to make your book really stand out? For the truest color reproduction, heaviest weight available in books, and a paper perfect for albums, choose Lustre 200. It is brilliantly shiny and our favorite paper for preserving memories!

Semi-Gloss 300

300 GSM One of our heaviest weight papers, it is sleek and has a more subtle shine. It's available for wire-o books, calendars, greeting cards and loose pages only, though it'll make those calendars and thoughtful notes shine. The Semi-gloss 220 is unique to the 14x11 Portfolio Photo Book

Matte 300

300 GSM Perfect for the artist and architect – bring your designs to life. Our Matte 300 is wonderful for loose pages used in portfolios and greeting cards to showcase your work whether it be for a gallery showing or for your family. There is no shine, but it shows off those details like no other.
