note:
For glossy paper, it is important to use a glossy paper type, as matte black ink does not print well on glossy paper.

Transparent or translucent paper

If your paper is a transparent film (for example, a transparency) select paper type Film, Transparent/Clear film.
If your paper is a translucent paper (for example, technical paper) select paper type Technical paper, Natural Tracing Paper, Vellum, or Translucent bond.

Glossy paper

If your paper is glossy, identify whether it is a photo paper or a proofing paper. If you are not sure consider it photo paper.
If your paper is a photo paper, use the Photo Paper category. For glossy or high-gloss paper select paper type Photo Gloss Paper. For Semi-gloss, Satin, Pearl, or Luster finishes, select paper type Semi-gloss/Satin Paper.
To increase gamut on photo paper select paper type HP Premium Instant-dry Photo Gloss or HP Premium Instant-dry Photo Satin, depending on the finish.
If your paper is a proofing paper, use the Proofing Paper category. For glossy or high-gloss paper select paper type Proofing Gloss. Otherwise, for Semi-gloss, Pearl, or Luster finishes, select paper type Proofing Semi-gloss/Satin.
To increase gamut on proofing paper select paper type HP Professional High-gloss Contract Proofing Paper or HP Professional Semi-gloss Contract Proofing Paper, depending on the finish.
If you are printing on a glossy banner (for example, HP Instant-Dry Indoor Banner, Gloss) select paper type Photo Gloss Paper.

Matte Paper

Your paper type selection for matte paper depends on the paper’s ink absorption capacity. To select a paper category and type, first identify if your paper is general purpose or photographic. Then select the recommended paper types.

General purpose paper

  • For thin papers (<90 g/m2) uncoated papers (for example plain paper or bright white paper) select paper type Bond and Coated, Plain Paper.
  • For light coated papers (<110 g/m2), select paper type Bond and Coated, Coated Paper.
  • For heavyweight coated papers (<200 g/m2), select paper type Bond and Coated, Heavyweight Coated Paper.
  • For cockle-free very thick coated papers (> 200 g/m2), select paper type Bond and Coated, Super Heavyweight Coated Paper.
      caution:
    Only use this option if you are sure your paper does not wrinkle when printed.

Photographic paper

For photographic paper, select paper type Photo Paper, Photo Matte Paper.

HP Banners with Tyvek
