Paper with coating on one or both sides of clay or polymer is coated paper. The coating may be slender, gloss, matt or high-gloss (coated cast). Commercial printers usually offer a variety of coated and uncoated papers that can be used in printing projects. When used for printing, coated paper produces sharper, brighter images and is more reflective than uncoated paper. Even the dull and matte coated papers that are not very vivid provide a much better printing surface than uncoated papers. Normally, coated papers have coatings on both the sides of the sheet, but the coating can be applied on one side only, such as labeling.
