Matt, Gloss and Silk all refer to different types of finishes that your business card will have. A finish will dictate how your card feels and also looks and may even affect the colour scheme that you have chosen. Matt finish simply means that it is not shiny and is more like traditional paper or card in the way that the finished business card looks.
