Why measure gloss?
Gloss helps images and text look sharper and more vibrant, and is important for visual appearance; however, too much gloss can make a paper overly shiny and difficult to read. Gloss must be applied in a certain amount to achieve the right balance between readability and reflective properties. On paperboards, the correct amount of gloss also conveys quality and luxury on packaging for higher-end products.
