Coated Paper refers to the “shiny paper” that everyone loves; although “coated paper” can also refer to matte coated paper. Coated papers have excellent print qualities because it's clay coating fills in any imperfections in the paper surface which gives a very smooth surface for ink and toner adhesion. This means that your printed images and text come out exceptionally crisp and clear. Coated papers give your finished print projects a polished and professional look.
