What’s the difference between lustre and metallic finishes on prints?


A lustre finish has a slightly textured matte finish which helps hide fingerprints. Most portraits and wedding photos are printed on a lustre finish. A metallic finish is high gloss and is printed on metallic paper. The metallic paper gives colors deeper color saturation, makes light colors brighter and has a metallic sheen to the whole print. It’s intended for artistic images as opposed to the traditional family portrait types of poses.
