Poster Board

Does anyone know of poster boards that have a gloss, semi gloss  or lustre finish.

Also are any poster boards of archival quality, and therefore similar in quality to, for example,  Hahnemuhle or other fine art papers. I will really appreciate replies.

Poster boards by nature are made out of cheap paper. Archival equivalents might be had from Bainbridge, Strathmore or Crescent and are called backing boards but I've never seen any that are glossy, just matte.

Yes, Fuji Semi Gloss RC Board

Does anyone know of poster boards that have a gloss, semi gloss or lustre finish.

Yes, Fuji Semi Gloss RC Board, available in 20x30" and also smaller sizes. See, e.g., https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/792406-REG/Fujifilm_600008343_RC_BOARD_SEMI_GLOSS_PPR.html. Note that this may be thicker and/or stiffer than what is to me traditional 'poster board', which would mean that some Epson printers can handle it but most printers cannot.

Also are any poster boards of archival quality, and therefore similar in quality to, for example, Hahnemuhle or other fine art papers. I will really appreciate replies.

The Fuji board claims to have an ink-receptive surface "fused onto museum-quality board", but I'd bet that, e.g., it contains optical brightening agents.
