PrintNinja offers various different paper coating options. These coatings are applied during paper manufacturing, as opposed to paper finishes, which are applied after printing. Each coating comes with unique advantages detailed below.
Gloss coating applied during manufacturing, giving your project a reflective shine. Coated gloss papers are our most popular variety, and are commonly used to convey professionalism. This results in rich colors and crisp resolution, making images “pop.” Catalogs, magazines, and children’s books are all examples of projects best printed on with coated gloss. However, fingerprints may become apparent on these types of projects due to their high shine.
Matte paper also has a coating applied during manufacturing. Unlike gloss coating, matte coating gives a diffused sheen, which boosts the contrast of photos and offers a smoother presentation than uncoated. These type of matte papers are often used for art books, lookbooks, literary journals, graphic novels and any other project requiring a more subtle shine.
