Coated paper: smooth paper surface, high whiteness, reflective paper surface, good ink absorption and ink adhesion, commonly used paper for high-end books and photo albums.
Matte paper: Also known as matte coated paper. Compared to coated paper, it is less reflective when viewed in sunlight. Although the printed pattern is not as bright as the coated paper, the pattern is more delicate and higher-grade than the coated paper. The color will also be as reflective as the coated paper.
