EPSON Professional Photo Paper Thick Slight Gloss

It is sold by the manufacturer so that you can choose between thick and thin paper depending on the purpose of use , but "PHOTOPRI" offers three carefully selected thick paper.

In this article, we will focus on the Profoto Thick Subtle Gloss .

[EPSON] Profoto Thick Slight Glossy Choice

Subtle luster

Epson handles a wide variety of glossy paper types.

If you have no printing experience, you may be at a loss as to "I don't know which paper to choose."

I think it is difficult to grasp the characteristics and impressions of a product unless you actually print it out, see it with your own eyes, and touch it with your hands.

There are three types of glossy paper: glossy, semi-gloss, and slight gloss .

There is another popular paper called Profoto Heavy Glossy, which is also sold by Epson.

It is true that Profoto Thick Gloss has a high adoption rate among the series, and some people think that this is the standard.

Faithful data color reproduction

This can be said to be a major feature of Epson photo paper, but when you print it out, you can see that colors are faithfully reproduced in both photos and illustrations .

Even if you compare it with the data, the color will not change significantly.

Depending on the type of paper, the colors may change, and there may be more than a few people who did not get the print results they wanted, but Epson's glossy papers all produce accurate color reproduction, and the results are satisfactory. I think it will be

I want to produce "calmness" with glossy paper

The main features of Profoto Thick Subtle Gloss are "calm and moist effect" and "slightly reflective" .

Normally, when you want to produce a "calmness", I think that many people use matte paper.

However, by choosing Profoto Thick Subtle Gloss, you can create a work that is easy to see without being too flashy.

Personally, I like this spacious reflection, and I would like to use it in photo exhibitions and photo contests.

“Easy to see” is one of the most important factors.

Being “easy to see” may help viewers feel something more concrete, and may expand their imagination.


In the Profoto series, the thick gloss and thick texture are so popular that there are not many opportunities to choose them.

I feel like it's a waste even though I have great potential.

I will continue to spread the word so that more people will know about it. smile
