I am making my first order from Costco and I have no idea which I am supposed to order. What is "usual?" Thank you!

I get luster since its a matte finish. It depends on what you prefer.

I prefer luster. I used Ilford Smooth Pearl when I print at home so the luster is the closest finish to that

I prefer the luster, but the glossy is the default, so if you don't pay attention and check the luster option, you will end up with glossy.

I always get glossy although I prefer the look of luster, so I really should start printing them all in luster! You won't get as much camera glare from luster-finish.

I like glossy. To me it seems the images have a sharper focus.

When I order, because I am picking them up from the store, I do not get a choice. I have to take Lustre. I can only get Glossy if I have them mailed to me. It may not be that way at all Costcos. I am happy with my photos in Lustre.

Lovetodigi- I always upload at home and pick up at the store and have the choice of luster or glossy. It is easy to miss. It it at the top of your basket, same place where you can choose a boarder for all your photos if you want. The glossy or luster choice is in the top left hand corner of your shopping basket.

it must vary by location because I have a message beside mine that says glossy is not available for in store pickup. Maybe my store does not have the right equipment for glossy. I am going to ask them about it the next time that I am in there.

Lustre. I get most of my prints done at Costco, and I've always been very happy with them.
