    I'm going to costco to print out some pictures I took this summer but not sure what kind of paper I want to use.

    I can use either glossy or lustre. Most of the pictures are landscape. Would one be preferable over the other?

    Usually I just print on bordered glossy paper but maybe lustre would look nicer?

    I use Epson Premium glossy.

    Lustre is a good finish, don't bother with matte.
