impression that all the different brands of printer makers use the same
paper, but Kodak have come up with a few innovations in their paper
design that has led to better quality photo prints and lower prices.
This article covers the unique photo printer paper Kodak sells which
allows consumers to create photo prints that look and feel like photos
printed in a lab, plus some information on the document paper on offer

printer paper which set it apart from the competition.
With most photo printer paper, you have to allow prints to sit and dry
before you touch them, otherwise you can end up smearing the ink and
ruining the prints. This isn’t the case with Kodak’s photo paper. The
paper absorbs the ink straight away so that the prints dry instantly.
You can then do whatever you like with them – frame them, put them in a
photo album, or give them away.

Types of Photo Paper from Kodak
There are different types of photo paper produced by Kodak. There are
standard Photo Paper, Premium Photo Paper and Ultra Premium Photo
Paper. Obviously, these Premium papers are more expensive but they also
include extra features that help create better prints.
Standard Photo Paper is intended to be the basic type of paper used for
normal photo printing. If you want something a little classier – to
create a photo album, for instance – you’d use Premium Photo Paper,
which produces a more colourful and "energetic" picture. And for
professional prints or something like a wedding photo, you’d use Ultra
Standard, Premium and Ultra Premium also give you the option of two
different finishes. With Standard and Premium paper you can choose
between a glossy or matte finish. With Ultra Premium, you have the
options of maximum shine or semi-gloss. If you’re just interested in
printing home photos, you’re likely to only need Standard and Premium
paper for most of your printing, but you may end up using Ultra Premium
for a particularly special photo which you want to frame and put on the
wall or give as a gift. Ultra Premium is the only paper offered in the
11 by 17 inch size.
As well as their range of photo paper, Kodak also produces two types of
document paper. These are Everyday Paper and Ultimate Paper. Ultimate
Paper is a heavier paper intended for use on important office documents
such as presentation reports. Both types of paper are designed to allow
brighter color printing.
