Our professional photo matte paper is ideal for printing photographs with with a semi-matte finish with very low shine and minimal reflection.
Our matte paper is acid free and is typically selected by designers for its archival quality and timeless appeal. With a soft, smooth surface, it provides velvety solids and natural-looking prints.
Our semi-matte paper does not produce images as vivid or clear as satin or gloss and is usually used when low reflection or a dull surface is preferred instead of any gloss.
Important note: our professional matte paper is a “semi-matte” which means there is still a small amount of gloss to the paper, which can be confusing if you are expecting a completely flat matte surface. We use semi-matte because it produces the best results and is the matte media of choice by professional photographers and our experienced customers that use our semi-matte. The very mild coating is necessary to provide the proper surface for ink absorption and high color gamut for vivid color reproduction. A true flat matte paper is non-porous and provides very dull washed out images that are not good for photography which results in low quality image reproduction.
