I am wondering what paper finish most of you use to print or have printed.
Glossy, Matte, other?
What do models prefer?
I have been giving them glossy in an inexpensive presentation folder with plastic inserts, but they want to stick to the inserts.
Do matte prints not stick to the plastic sleeves in folders?
Thanks in advance.

I usually print glossies, but lately I've been doing some matte printing, especially of the towel pinup and other classic glamour shots I've been doing. I've never had a problem with either sort sticking to my portfolio pages. Are you using those acetate presentation covers they sell at OfficeMax? Those stick to damn near anything, especially if you stack them and there's any pressure at all. I've never used them for photos - we used to have some around here that I'd send memos to clients in until I got sick of them cracking and sticking and so forth. I'd avoid them like the plague.

I use Epson's Glossy/heavy photo paper for my inkjet prints on my Epson printer. I put them in the acetate photo pages that can be had at Wally World and etc, the only sticking problems that I've had is when I do NOT use good paper and do NOT let them air dry overnight before going into the sleeve.

Cheers!

Hi Marc,
Thanks for replying, I use a small ring presentation binder from Staples.
Acetate?, I don't know, but seems like thicker is better as far as inserts go.
Next prints I make I'll try matte finish.
Thanks, Ron

Hi Jon,
Thanks for replying, I have used different brands of glossy paper and found some look better than others, even better than HP's most expensive paper, (my printer is HP)and I always let prints dry over night. The sticking occurses after some time, not right away. I was just wondering what others do to eliminate the problem.
Thanks, Ron

I print mostly on Matte paper (Canon s9000 - Canon Matte Photo paper) and models seem to like it a lot. It is also about 1/4th the cost of glossy. I personally like the look of the photos better on Matte. I get really nice looking binders at my local Camera store that sell for less than $5 and have never had a problem with sticking. I can thus prepare a book of 12 to 18 8.5 x 11 photos for a model for a very reasonable cost and they seem to like this approach.
Cheers,
rfs

Hi Rodger,
I think the next set I do, I'm going to go with Matte finish.
I had a 8x12 printed at Costco, and it looked great, once it was in an insert in the binder, (20 page small ring presentation binder from Staples, about 6 bucks) it looked glossy anyway. The local Costco here does a great job with prints, 8x12 $1.99, 12x18 $2.99, the color is as good or better than my prints and probably cheaper than my costs. 1 hour pick-up.
Thanks for your reply,Ron

I use Epson Premium Glossy and Clearfile sleeves for my own prints and mine don't stick even after years.
