DISCLAIMER: 
This layout looks xtra STUNNING when printed correctly, from Persnickety Prints!
This purple background is completely a solid color and will not look so pretty when printed at home.

Glossy vs Matte/Lustre Prints
The difference in print finish is difficult to show online. Paper is something that needs to be touched. This isn't normal paper. It is photographic paper. Light is a huge factor, and we still use a darkroom to change our paper rolls. You will never get this kind of a print quality anywhere else.
The paper finish is a personal preference.
Matte is a more popular choice for digital scrapbook layouts. Glossy has more of a vibrant "pop", but there is some glare. Glossy also retains fingerprints. We use white gloves when handling our glossy prints. I would recommend going with matte prints for anything that is going to be handled. (photo cards)
Both paper types are waterproof, and so archival that you won't even be alive to see them fade!


Metallic
Metallic looks similar to the glossy, but with much more contrast. The metallic photographic paper is still photographic (ie, waterproof, archival, scratch/fade resistant, etc.) and with our software that reads your embedded sRGB color profile- your images will pop! Metallic paper is thicker than the glossy and matte papers. It works great with solid colors/graphics and is perfect for cards. (ask for no backprinting)
