Is matte or glossy better for black and white photos?
Matte photo prints do not reflect light and are thus easier to view at almost any light condition. Matte photo prints are also less likely to attract dust and fingerprints and are less likely to get dirty over time. Black and white matte photo prints look better than black and white glossy photo prints.

Pearl Finish – Often used by professional photographers and graphic designers, it includes slightly higher glossiness compared to satin finish. It benefits from vibrant deep color results, but yet still has a lower reflection than the gloss paper. Available in micro/nano pores coating.
If images are not perfectly sharp and clear, glossy papers can enhance the photos. Landscape and still-life shots come out especially well on glossy paper, as do very colorful portraits. Often used by professionals, matte photo paper is free of shine, resulting in more muted colors.
Matte photos reduce the sharpness of an image, so are not a great choice for high definition photos. Matte finishes tend to require more ink to give your colors good saturation, so they can be more expensive than gloss.
Matte paper has a semi-gloss finish, produces high quality prints, but lacks the vibrant effects of gloss paper. Matte paper produces no glare and is resistant to smudging and imprints left by fingerprints. Fun fact: gloss paper is very slightly thinner than matte paper, even though they're the same weight.
Top positive review I just received my first order of this Koala photo paper and I am very impressed. I have been searching for a high gloss heavier paper and this one fills the bill perfectly. The paper is very cost effective too. I can order 100 sheets of this paper for what most manufacturers charge for 50 sheets.
Gloss: One of the most common types of photo papers, Glossy papers are coated with a bright, shiny emulsion, giving inkjet prints rich depths of color and a bold, shiny sheen. Matte: Duller and more understated, matte photo papers are often coated as well, albeit coated to appear softer.
Printer and paper details: Costco's One Hour Photo poster printing service uses Epson 7880 and 7890 printers with 8-color Epson UltraChrome K3TM inks. Two paper types are offered: Fujifilm Photo Satin Paper (270 gsm) and Fujifilm RC Semi-Gloss Poster Board.
However, many artists do run our papers through printers and are happy with the results. Sheets such as Watercolor and Bristol are fairly thick and printer models with a larger bend in the paper feed could pose an issue. Check your printer manual to see how thick of paper can be run through without jamming it.
