What is Glossy Finish?
The glossy paper is printed using an ink-jet process to apply the image (text and graphics) to the surface of the paper. The ink used is water-resistant, which means that it will not run if the label gets wet.
Glossy paper comes in three grades: bright, eggshell, and semi-gloss. Bright has the highest gloss, while semi-gloss (and eggshell) are somewhere in between bright and matte. This gives you some flexibility to tweak the visual effect you want for your specific use. This glossy finish comes with an ultra-smooth and shiny appearance that will surely strike the viewer more effectively.
