What Weight of Paper is Best for Postcards?
Gloss paper has a shiny and lustrous smooth coated gloss finish. Excellent for making full color printing appear more vibrant. Matte paper is a dull coated sheet that exhibits low gloss finish. Paper has minimal glare, making it easier to read text. Uncoated paper is easy to write on and should be used in projects such as a workbook or coloring book.
