[I tried printing] The charm of EPSON photo paper Crispia high gloss

EPSON Photo Paper Crispia High Gloss

Among the photo papers sold by EPSON, CRISPIA High Gloss Photo Paper (hereinafter referred to as CRISPIA) is the best .

A photo that makes everyone nod.

Paper with high durability and firmness.

Its sparkle is stronger than the "Professional Photo Paper Thick Glossy" released by the same manufacturer, and it can give a clear impression .

As "PHOTOPRI" and personally, we have a strong desire to have as many people as possible experience Crispia.

"I want to know about the characteristics of Crispia."

"How is it different from other forms?"

"What kind of photos and illustrations are suitable?"

I would like to write for those who have such troubles and those who are not quite ready to adopt Crispia.

Crispia High Gloss Choice

For print beginners who don't want to make mistakes

It may be sudden , but we recommend Crispia for those who are new to printing, such as "I have never done large-format printing," "I'm ordering from a printing shop for the first time, but... " (The reason for this will be explained later.)

We assume that most people who have experienced large-format printing have used Crispia at least once.

Many of the people who actually order from "PHOTOPRI" become "crispia regulars" who say "I use Crispia every time I print. "

There are many types of glossy paper, including those manufactured overseas, in addition to those produced by domestic manufacturers, and it can be really confusing when choosing paper.

If you are a beginner in printing, you may feel like you have a number of stars, but the first thing I would like to recommend is Crispia.

Paper like a bright mirror

One of the major features of Crispia is its high gloss .

The product name just says "high gloss", so I would like to strongly recommend the manufacturer in this regard.

As you can see in the photo above, photos printed with Crispia have a very glossy surface and are highly reflective.

Glossy paper from Epson will give you a passing grade for any photo. In other words, I think it is the product of the company's efforts to develop the paper so that it can create images that leave a good impression . 

Crispia, however, is far from a passing mark and is close to the highest score .

Crispia's pronoun is "beautiful sparkle".

Depending on the type of paper, glossy paper may shine brightly, and some may even feel vulgar.

Crispia is a paper with a strong glossiness, but it has a smooth and elegant way of shining, so you don't get tired of looking at it.

There are many photo papers that can be used for general purposes, but Crispia has an absolute beauty due to its high gloss, so it is also a unique paper that clearly distinguishes itself from other papers.

Easy to collect information

Crispia is one of the many glossy papers with the highest level of recognition and image quality .

If you search about Crispia on Google, you will find that there are many articles and reviews about Crispia written by professional photographers, photographers, and amateurs who enjoy it as a hobby .

Also, since there are many shops that sell Crispia, you can see that many people have come into contact with the paper called "Crispia" .

And I personally think that this is very important.

Sometimes I see people who don't like what "everyone else is using".

For example, in the field of fashion, there are many people who say, "I enjoy wearing unique fashion so as not to overlap with others," and I think it's easy for everyone to imagine.

Of course, in the world of fashion, it should be respected, but in the world of printing, it is an important factor that "everyone is using it."

Because it is easy to collect information when you are in trouble .

As you gain experience with printing, you will find things that you want to improve and things that you are concerned about, such as "I want to do more" or "I want to get closer to my ideals."

If so, having someone around to listen can be very helpful in solving problems.

“Crispea would be perfect for a photo like this, wouldn’t it?”

"If I choose Crispia in this picture, it might be too flashy."

I think it's a big step to be able to exchange opinions such as.

Also, this is an aside, but knowing the highest level like Crispia from the beginning will save time and money for some people in the long run.

If you don't know which one to choose, choose Crispia first, and if you are satisfied with the printing results, you don't have to try other glossy papers.

Some of the people who order it only use CRISPIA for the rest of their lives (laughs), so I think that's what makes this photo paper so attractive.

For those who are so addicted to using only Crispia, it may be an advantage not to have to spend money on other papers.

What kind of photos/illustrations are suitable?

When you want to create a special feeling

If you look at the photos of those who order from Crispier, the genre of the subject is really various.

Also, "photographs" are often printed, and "illustrations" are rarely printed. If you are planning to print illustrations, we recommend premium matte paper.

It has received high praise from illustrators, so please consider it!

Crispia is a very popular paper for printing event photos such as wedding photos, entrance ceremonies and graduation ceremonies .

It is often chosen for printing photos taken as souvenirs, so it is recommended if you want to give a gift with a high-quality paper.

Also, the adoption rate at exhibitions such as solo exhibitions is high .

However, as mentioned above, since the paper is highly reflective due to its high gloss, it may not be suitable for exhibition in bright places, so it seems necessary to consider the lighting at the venue.

Precautions for handling

Crispia has a strong glossiness, so scratches on the surface of the printed material will be noticeable in the reflected light.

Of course, any paper can be damaged, but you need to be especially careful with Crispia, so be careful when you take it out of the box.


Photos expressed with Crispia are finished as wonderful photos that capture the atmosphere of the shooting site .

If you like the glossiness of CRISPIA and would like to compare it with other papers, we recommend [PICTORICO] White Film , which has the same glossiness.

"PHOTOPRI" doesn't handle it, so I'm sorry to recommend it here, but white film also produces very sharp and detailed expressions, so why not add it to one of your options?

Would you like to try printing on Crispia High Gloss photo paper?

Just like when you buy a car, you should test drive it once. Before printing, we would like you to use the free trial printing and experience the paper with your own eyes .

Glossy paper, matte paper, fine art paper, Japanese paper, and many other types of paper have different textures, textures, colors, and so on.

Even if you try to choose the best one from many papers, I think it will be difficult all of a sudden. A lot of people don't know which one to choose.

You can use your own photo data for trial printing.

We have prepared a trial set according to your preference, so please take advantage of it!
