That's the only way I can describe the finish on this paper. It's not glossy which is good because glossy can be a pain to work with. No it's richer than the other paper collections they have done. I compared it with Couture and it's just Richer. Like how on an oil painting the colors look richer than a watercolor. Both are beautiful. Just different. But what I really love are the Lucky Dog and the All you need is Love and a Cat cut aparts. Their So Beautiful!! They have shadows and everything! On the Lucky Dog the light is falling on the girl from her left. They did an excellent Job on the shading and the image has so much depth! So does the one with the cat. It's has such a brightness to it like it's infused with light! G45 Does it Again!! They are always Uping their Game and raising the standard of what 12x12 papers can be!
I've never disliked anything I've ordered of Graphic 45's - it's always better in person than on the website. No one else can do vintage better than them. And it always arrives carefully packed, no wrinkles, no folds, no tears.
