What makes a high quality 190 gsm gloss paper roll?

Three components are required:

  • Excellent colour reproduction
  • High resolution of details and excellent colour definition
  • High Ink absorption capacity

The starting point is a high quality ink receiver layer to ensure ink hitting the surface stays in position. This is achieved by manufacturing the paper in such a way that it ‘s surface is made up of tens of thousands of tiny pyramids. This allows for heavy saturation of ink building layers without the droplets of ink bleeding into one another causing problems like metamerism or bronzing.

How to choose between gloss and satin paper rolls

High gloss photo wide format paper rolls share many of the characteristics of satin photo paper. Their coatings enable them to handle high resolution images with heavy ink coverage but still deliver accurate colour with the largest possible colour gamut. By the nature of a glossy surface more light is reflected so the colours can appear ‘brighter’ however this also has a flip side in that glossy images in the wrong location can allow too much light causing ‘glare’ and the inability to see the image clearly. Most high quality 190 gram papers are available in Gloss or Satin for this reason as a gloss image in the right location will look fantastic but if it is exposed to direct sunlight then Satin would be the better option.

Exposure to strong light and direct sunlight

Understanding where the printed image will be located is key to making the right decision on which paper coating to go for. Most people have a preference for gloss, satin or matt but to make the most of the image or your message the amount of light the print will be exposed to is the key determinant. A glossy print displayed internally with well balanced consistent lighting will deliver stunning sharp images and the most vibrant and accurate colours. If you are unable to control the lighting as is the case at exhibitions a satin finish is preferable.
