Types of Paper
Paper types refers to the finish of the paper, this affects the look of the pages rather than the feel or the weight.
This produces a matte finish. The majority of books that you read have an uncoated finish.
Paper with a silk finish has a low sheen coating. This improves colours and sharpens images. Silk is somewhere between uncoated and gloss, it provides a high-quality look in a more subtle way than gloss.
Perfect for: photo books, posters, leaflets, and brochures
