Choosing the Right Finish for Your Indoor Poster
We offer three options of paper finish for your indoor poster: matt, satin and photo gloss.
Photo gloss paper is reflective and helps to showcase the colours and details of your poster, especially useful if the poster will be viewed in a low-light setting. Photo gloss paper shows dirt and fingerprints so is best covered with glass or plastic. In settings with very bright lighting, gloss paper can be too reflective and mean the graphic is difficult to see from all angles.
Matt poster paper doesn’t reflect light and is well suited to black and white posters, less detailed posters, and posters that will be viewed in well-lit settings. A key benefit of matt poster paper is that smudges aren’t visible on it so you don’t have to worry so much about keeping your poster clean.
Satin poster paper (also called semi-gloss) provides a middle ground between photo gloss and matt paper. It showcases colours, details and contrasts very well, but doesn’t produce as much glare as photo gloss paper. Smudges are also less visible on this type of paper so it’s possible to display this type of poster without a protective cover.
Should You Laminate Your Indoor Poster?
We print all of our indoor posters on durable, thick poster paper so you don’t need to laminate them. However, laminating can help to protect your poster so that it lasts longer. We offer three laminating options: matt, gloss and dry-wipe. Matt and gloss are self-explanatory, and the dry-wipe finish consists of a thin film that makes it possible to clean dirt, grime and even graffiti from your poster.
