Glossy is non-absorbent paper that traditionally has a clean, cut edge and a reflective, non-porous surface, which will not allow the ink to be absorbed into the paper. Non-Glossy cardstock stamping typically has clean, cut edges, does not reflect the light and is porous, allowing the ink to be absorbed into the surface of the paper.
