Inside Page Stock
• Uncoated - No coating provides a porous surface with increased ink absorption. The result is a soft, warm flat finish perfect for writing on.
• Gloss - A Gloss coating creates a seal that means the ink sits on top of the paper. The result is a shiny glossy finish. Not recommended if you want to write on the pages.
• Silk Matt - A Silk Matt coating creates a seal that means the ink sits on top of the paper. The result is a high quality satin finish. This is a very popular option.
