Canon PP-301 Photo Paper Plus Glossy II
Printing photographs is an important step for photographers, whether it is sharing work with friends and family or preparing prints for critique. The paper you use is a critical component that can affect the overall look, feel, and texture of the print.
Bright white photo papers with a soft luster finish are an excellent choice because they resist glare and fingerprints while providing great color saturation and contrast. Some paper types also have base coatings to improve ink receptivity and some include optical brightening agents (OBA).
PP-301 Photo Paper Plus Glossy II
The PP-301 Photo Paper Plus Glossy II from Canon delivers superior quality output with a glossy finish that yields exceptionally rich colors to give your prints the look and feel of traditional photographs. It is ideal for digital photographic output and all your reprints.
The micro-porous coating on this photo paper quickly absorbs ink deep below the surface to help prevent excess ink from being left on top of the printed image. This helps to ensure your print is instant-dry and ready for display or sharing.
Genuine Canon papers also help protect photos from gases and light that can cause fading over time.
PP-101 Photo Paper Pro Premium Matte
A non-reflective paper that looks great in a variety of lighting conditions. It also produces sharp details and vibrant colours, especially in black-and-white prints. It is durable enough to stand up to handling and is ideal for prints that will not be framed behind glass.
Its 210 gsm basis weight is a little lighter than the Pro Platinum and Pro Luster papers. This may help to reduce glare when displaying prints in bright sunlight. It is recommended that printed sheets be stacked with plain paper between each sheet for the first 24 hours to avoid bleeding/discoloration from moisture. The paper does not contain optical brightening agents so can be profiled using a spectrophotometer.
PP-201 Photo Paper Pro Luster
It has a soft luster finish that provides a traditional photo lab look and feels. It prints vivid color and stunning black and white photographs, with rich shadow details and solid blacks. It is a great paper for printing portraits, weddings, and other events.
It is a medium weight paper with a brightness rating of 92. It does not appear to use OBAs (Optical Brightening Agents) which is a good thing, since these chemicals increase the brightness of a print by absorbing UV light and emitting it as blue light.
This paper does fluoresce, but not nearly as strongly as Moab Entrada Rag Natural which is OBA free. This makes it easy to profile with a spectrophotometer.

Premium Photo Paper Glossy
Glossy paper prints images with a vivid and rich look. This type of photo paper works well for vacation snaps and portraits as it allows colors to pop, especially under bright light.
However, it can be problematic when viewed under certain lighting conditions or when used behind glass as the glossy finish can cause glare. If you’re displaying black-and-white photos or pictures with many details, matte photo papers are better.
These smooth papers are made with a resin coating, which helps them resist water and smudges while maintaining an ink-receptive surface. They also lay flat to prevent curling and are designed to provide a high Dmax.
Premium Super Glossy
Printing photos is an important step in any photographer’s workflow. The right paper can dramatically improve the look and feel of your prints, so choose carefully.
The type of paper you choose can also impact your color gamut and dynamic range, as well as the whiteness or tint of your print. OBA (optical brightening agents) are chemicals that are added to surface or base coatings and create noticeable yellow or bluish tints in some papers.
A smooth, glossy finish resists glare and is ideal for framing prints. Matte papers don’t have a shiny coating, so they’re ideal for black and white images. Seamless paper backgrounds make setup and cleanup easier by eliminating the need for tape or clamps.
