This is good news for those of us who print - almost a dying breed in todays "view online" world.
Explaining to clients the impact good quality paper makes on prints, and hence the additional costs, has always been difficult. I often best to show them before they fully understand.
Not that I have many clients who would pay for this level.
My own personal preference is usually for a matt finish.
