    Zane, you need to find a distributor in your area. Your dealer may well be a tile distributor, as here in Austin. Check the yellow pages under laminate, or go to tile, or go to the WilsonArt web site and look for dealers close to you. Gloss is definitely a special order.

    A very good place to look would be local kitchen cabinet shops. Most of them do custom work and will have access to any kind of laminate that exists. As Hank mentioned, gloss black will most likely be special order. Though if you have any large woodworking supply companies they may have it in stock. Best of luck.

    Any color is available in any finish. Just ask for gloss finish when ordering.

    Zane, you should be able to find a tile distributor that is either a WilsonArt or Formica distributor. Gloss is not normally a stock item. Here's a description of WilsonArt's finishes:
    Finishes
    * #1 High Gloss
    A mirror sheen finish which gives a smooth, brilliant appearance. Excellent for any vertical application. Laminates with a high gloss finish can be used for horizontal application only in light use areas. We recommend that it not be used on horizontal work surfaces such as countertops. Glossometer reading: MD and CD 100 ( 10.
    * #7 Textured Gloss
    A textured finish which reproduces the high sheen of waxed wood furniture. Recommended for horizontal and vertical application. Available only on those designs for which it is the standard finish. Glossometer reading: MD and CD 36 ( 3.
    * #50 Touchstone
    A pebbled texture with the look and feel of coarse-grained sand. Recommended for vertical and non-writing horizontal surfaces in residential and commercial applications. Glossometer reading: MD and CD 10 ( 2.
    * #60 Matte
    Textured finish with a moderate reflective quality. Recommended for horizontal and vertical application. Glossometer reading: MD and CD 10 ( 2.
    * #81 Cathedral Grain
    An embossed finish that offers the look and feel of flat cut wood. Recommended for vertical application and non-writing horizontal surfaces in residential and commercial applications such as casework. Glossometer reading: MD and CD 25 ( 6.
    * #90 Crystal
    A very finely beaded texture that minimizes smudges and finger marks and improves scratch resistance. Recommended for horizontal and vertical application. Glossometer reading: MD and CD 13 ( 3.
    WilsonArt has a distributor locator: http://www.wilsonart.com/laminate/co...ator/index.asp
