Silk album paper

Paper type - Silk

The newest addition to the lineup is Silk. It’s a throwback paper for someone who wants a refined texture with a touch of vintage. It offers a thicker weight and soft reflection with a fine texture similar to vinyl. With less of that final shiny layer, matte prints offer a similar lifespan, but without that glossy sheen.

gloss album paper

Paper type - High Gloss

Glossy photos do just what their name implies — they gloss over the photograph, giving it a nice shine. The paper and the coating behind that glossy photograph is actually made up of the same stuff as a matte image, except that more of the final coating is used. That extra layer of shine tends to give the image an apparent boost in color and, well, like anything with a bit of shine to it, just looks pretty.

SILK High Gloss


Velvet paper reduces saturation and contrast but has an extremely soft touch to it.

For people wanting that extra luxury feel to their album.
