O.K. the left is matte, very dull colors. I worked just as hard to get the ink on the matte as I did on the glossy, but my favorite is still the glossy. Brighter, bolder colors. I recommend you use disposable gloves when you do this step! Soap and water won't get the ink off your hands! On to the next step, augh!!! I have to cut up these beauties!
