Main Products

Utrillo Gloss Matte Series

With an emphasis on printing quality, this matte coated paper comes close to dull finish coated paper

Where many so-called matte coated papers use the irregularities in the paper surface as the matte surface, ”Utrillo Gloss Matte” makes no compromise in the even flatness of the paper surface. This paper provides not only printed output with an entirely different feel in dot reproduction and print gloss, but also a perceptible difference in ink drying characteristics.

A2 grade brand name… Utrillo Gloss Matte
A3 grade brand name… Utrillo L Gloss Matte
Applications Catalogues, pamphlets, leaflets, posters, etc.

Does "Gloss Matte" have a glossy surface? Or is it a matte (dull) finish?

In the U.S., blank paper is categorized by the degree of gloss of the surface (glossiness) as matte, dull (between matte and gloss), and gloss finish paper. These are not strictly differentiated in Japan, but the categories are generally similar to those in the U.S. You might wonder, then, whether our “Gloss Matte” paper comes in between gloss and matte, but that is not the case, either. The "gloss" part of the name indicates that the printed surface is glossy. The "matte" part of the name indicates that the blank surface has a matte finish. However, this is not to suggest that a rigorous distinction is being made here, either, and you should be careful because manufacturers sometimes use terms differently.
