    huh? I print all on glossy paper, it's cheaper at the lab.

    Ah, the husband and I were discussing paper (fun topic eh?). Anyway, he said he thought sports were always printed on glossy paper to give it a nice crisp look. I was just wondering.

    Glossy paper gives a higher contrast print than matt - it's the same if you are printing from film or digital. Images usually appear sharper when printed on glossy paper compared with the same image on a matt paper even though the actual sharpness/resolution will be the same.

    The type of paper also makes a difference. A photographic paper with a 'high white' surface will produce punchier prints than a standard paper.
