Types of A3 Photographic Paper
There are many different types of A3 photo paper which have several different coatings and base paper content. The most common type is a cast coated paper, which is a lot cheaper to buy and is great for using as an everday paper for the photography enthusiast, art and craft or for home use.
The other type is Resin Coated which has a different base paper and coating which is mainly used for the more professional look and feel as you would get with photo paper. This of course comes at a cost and can be more than twice the price of cast coated paper.
