In production, a coating is applied in liquid form to the poker chips and exposed to ultraviolet light. This light bonds the coating and dries it instantly, creating a protective barrier. Matte is our default option and what we recommend if you don’t want your chips to be “shiny”. There’s no glare and the chips stack better because the gloss will make them slightly slippier.
However, because of popular demand, we are bringing back the option to Choose Glossy for those who want their photos to "pop" a bit more. Metallic effects and photos will usually look a little sharper with this option.
