Paper Comparison

Whether you're looking for a specific feature, the best price, or just aren't sure what you want, we can help you find what you're searching for. Our papers do have one thing in common: they're all acid-free!

The photos shown below our wonderful examples of the gloss coating on each paper, though nothing quite beats seeing the physical paper for yourself.

Express Satin Paper: 118 GSM

Express Satin Paper: 118 GSM Icon

This uncoated paper stock is comparable to the Silk but offers a flatter image that is ideal for text heavy color pages and those who are the most cost conscious. We definitely recommend ordering a proof copy to make sure you like the outcome compared to our other budget-conscious options.

Express Photo Silk Paper: 118 GSM

This paper is the thinnest we offer, similar to the pages of a magazine. It is one of our most affordable options. Your images will have a softer quality to them, though it's certainly a great option if you're on a budget and still want outstanding printed pages! It's also the only paper available for mini books.

Premium Photo Paper: 146 GSM

Our most popular paper, the Premium Photo Paper is a classic choice and among our most popular papers. Lighter and less expensive than our Elite Heavy Photo Lustre Paper, this paper has a slight gloss, great color reproduction, and is heavier than our standard Express Photo Silk paper. Still an A+ option for both albums and books, we don't think you'll go wrong with this paper!

Have an album or want to make your book really stand out? For the truest color reproduction, heaviest weight available in books, and a paper perfect for albums, choose Elite Heavy Photo Lustre Paper. It is brilliantly shiny and our favorite paper for preserving memories!

Elite Semi-Gloss Paper: 300 GSM

One of our heaviest weight papers, it is sleek and has a more subtle shine. It's available for wire-o books, calendars, greeting cards and loose pages only, though it'll make those calendars and thoughtful notes shine. The Cover Stock Gloss Paper is unique to the 14x11 Portfolio Photo Book
