What Weight of Paper is Best for Posters?
100# Gloss Text (5pt) This shiny and lustrous coated sheet is excellent for full color printing making photographs stand out and look rich and beautiful. It is about 25% thicker and heavier than 80# text, giving a more upscale, sharp and appealing look with a higher end feel. This premium paper features high opacity for two-sided printing that will have minimal show through the opposite side. *Recommended*
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.
