it's Bravo Black Matte with a gold lip. The gold is lightly brushed over a reddish surface so it looks really reddish. I was hoping to compliment the gold metallic of the print but wound up complimenting the paper better instead! I really like everything about the way it came out except the anti glare plexi.
I dunno, it's just my immediate reaction. I'm thinking it'd probably be pretty good in a really bright room with natural light. Our house is kinda dark though so any artificial light source just looks like a fuzzy blob in the middle of the printed image instead of a mirror image reflection of a light. It seems to add this pebbly, grey blur too. With this specific print, I think it also mutes the metallic gold of the floral, leafy lattice in the lower half. I'm thinking it would "pop" more with straight, clear surface. Maybe it wouldnt. It's just a guess. Sitting at dinner tonight, with a chandelier between me and the print, it was kinda frustrating to see all the grey fuzziness.
i am kind of on the fence with the anti-glare plexiglass. it is really blurry when you hold it up and try to look through it at things in your house. but on the print i really can't see a loss of quality of the print. i would think it would somewhat dull the print but i can't tell any difference.
