Choosing Glossy Photo Papers (Buying tips)

Form: For printing standard home photos, choose glossy photo paper in sheet form. Look for glossy photo paper in roll form for high-volume photo printing or for printing large-format photos.

Acid-free composition: Choose acid-free glossy photo paper to prevent photos from yellowing or fading after exposure to different weather conditions and light.
