The choice between matte vs. gloss lamination depends on the printed piece and how you plan to use it. Both types provide a strong, clear covering that keeps the text and graphics completely visible to the reader. However, keep in mind that matte absorbs light while gloss reflects it. This makes a big difference in the appearance of the printed piece and the impact it has on people.
The printed piece is an item that gets handled a lot every day. Gloss provides a higher level of protection than matte and is easier to clean.
You want the piece to make a strong visual impact. With gloss lamination, the colours seem to jump off the page.
Avoiding glare is not a problem.
