Semi Gloss Large Format Posters
The Advantages of Printing Big, Semi-gloss Posters
Posters are printed on a high-gloss, semi-gloss or matte paper. Each type has particular characteristics well-suited for a given purpose. However, people tend to go with matte or high gloss, thinking that semi gloss has fewer benefits. But contrary to popular belief, semi gloss large format posters can offer just as much.
Matte poster papers produce sharp details. They can be placed anywhere. You can expose them to direct sunlight or spotlight. Matte poster papers wouldn't cause glare which makes text more readable. High-gloss papers produce prints with vibrant colors and high resolution. They have a shiny finish which adds to the appeal. Semi-gloss papers offer a middle ground between high-gloss and matte. It's like getting the best of both worlds!
Semi-gloss posters combine the qualities of both high gloss and matte. Semi-gloss posters have high resolution and have lively colors. They are also durable like matte paper. They produce fewer glares than high gloss posters. These distinctions allow semi gloss-posters to be flexible. They are durable (great for promotional purposes) have just enough shine to make them appropriate for business presentations and campaigns.
These characteristics make semi-gloss poster papers a popular choice for many. If you don’t want your posters to be neither too polished nor too plain, go for semi-gloss.
