    Default Any Portfolio Book advice?

    Hi there,
    I intend to go down Citylink and get one of those photo book for my portfolio.

    1. Can anyone advice me on whether I should print 8R matte or gloss? Whats the 'norm'?

    2. I'm staying in the west side, is there any reputable printers nearby with good color calibration?

    Thank you, thank you...

    I guess the norm depends on you.
    Why not test print both types and see which you like?
    Of course i don't mean print the entire collection.

    Just that for glossy prints you need to watch your fingerprints, but the colors are usually more vivid and slightly more details in the shadows.
