Paper Types:
Coated Paper - a coated paper stock has a surface sealant and often contains clay. which gives it a smooth finish. Coated papers are available in a gloss, silk (sometimes called satin) or matt finish and are used for projects requiring a fine finish, which is why coated paper is sometimes referred to as 'art' paper. Most of the leaflets you get through your letterbox, the glossy brochures you pick up from the travel agent and the fancy programmes you buy at concerts are printed onto coated paper.
Art-paper and Lightweight Coated Paper are Coated paper.
Gloss - a gloss coated paper has a high sheen, as those in a typical magazine.
Matte - a matte coated paper is a non-glossy, flat looking paper with very little sheen. Easier to read on.
 
Uncoated paper - doesn't have a coating and is therefore not as smooth as coated paper. You will use uncoated paper in your laser printer and photocopier. Premium quality uncoated papers are used for business stationery.
