Matte Paper is an economical presentation or brochure
paper. Matte coating provides a higher print resolution and enhanced
color intensity. Because of the higher print resolution, it also
benefits the detail and accuracy of black and white printing (for text
clarity or detailed diagrams).
Matte-coated paper is excellent for printing photographs,
rich-color images, and detailed line drawings by providing a high-resolution
surface which enhances color intensity and contrast. The difference in
visual appeal is dramatic compared to anything on an uncoated paper.
makes matte paper an effective low-cost presentation paper for applications
such as brochures, posters, CAD prints (refer to 13 x 19 matte paper) or other design and
advertising presentation needs.
