Find the perfect paper for your CEWE PHOTOBOOK and make every page extra special.

Classic paper

Classic Paper

(Previously known as Standard Paper)

Classic by name and classic by nature, this paper type is perfect for all types of book and any occasion.

We wanted to make sure that choosing our entry level paper never meant compromising on quality. So if you don’t want to upgrade to one of our other signature papers, you can feel confident that your book will still look fantastic, and that Classic Paper will do your photographs justice.

High Gloss paper

High Gloss Paper

(Previously known as Glossy Paper)

Bring out those bright colours with our High Gloss Paper. Many people prefer their photographs to be glossy, and this paper is the perfect choice if you want to give your photo book that high gloss sheen.

During manufacturing, each page is given a rich, high gloss coating, which will add brightness to your colourful photos – perfect for those sunny holiday snaps. What’s more, the gloss finish will keep your photos looking pristine, whilst protecting against dirt and moisture too.

Classic Photographic paper

Classic Photographic Paper

(Previously known as Premium Photographic Paper)

One of the best things about our Classic Photographic Paper is that it comes with a Layflat binding. This means that there’s no gap or gutter between pages, letting you create seamless double page spreads of your panoramic photos and lovely landscape shots.

The heavier weight and photographic feel of this paper makes it perfect for a professional portfolio or that extra special one-off photo book.

Gloss Photographic paper

Gloss Photographic Paper

(Previously known as Glossy Photographic Paper)

Like its Classic partner, our Gloss Photographic Paper is Layflat, so your landscape pictures and panoramas will look stunningly seamless when laid across a double page spread. This paper has a heavier weight too, making it extra durable for that book you want to treasure for a lifetime.

If you prefer your photographs to have a glossy look, the high-gloss finish of this paper will be perfect. Bring out those bright colours of your travel snaps or shots of the great outdoors.

True Matte paper

True Matte Paper

Give your photo book a smooth, shine-free finish with True Matte Paper. We call it True Matte because it’s the most matte paper you can get, with a truly beautiful finish that really brings out the detail of your photographs.

If you’re more a fan of matte than glossy, then this is the paper for you. Perfect for professional portfolios or black and white photography, the detail of your images will really stand out on True Matte.

Matte Photographic paper

Matte Photographic Paper

With a smooth matte finish, and a Layflat binding so you can show off your images across a double page spread, Matte Photographic Paper combines the beautiful feel of matte with the wow factor of our Layflat books.

Create impact with impressive panoramas and double page spreads for a book that really stands out. The sixth addition to our brilliant range of papers, Matte Photographic could well be your new favourite.

Photo Book Paper Options

A beautiful book starts with the right paper. Choose from six paper types for your photo book, each of which has been carefully selected for its quality. Whatever story you have to tell and whatever kind of book you want to make, make it even more beautiful with the perfect paper.

Each different paper type has its own look and feel, with certain papers more suitable for particular kinds of photography. Above all it comes down to personal choice though, so we recommend choosing the paper that catches your eye, or the type of paper you generally prefer – whether that’s glossy or matte.
