Colour Will Be Muted And Subtle

Since the stock is an uncoated stock the colours will appear more muted and subtle compared to those on coated stocks.

Greys Can Shift

CMYK Process colours in the grey range and de-saturated images can shift in colour throughout the print run and may cause the greys to appear either cooler or warmer. For a neutral grey we recommend converting all grey values and de-saturated images to true greyscale consisting of K (black) only values.

Images May Not Be As Crisp As Coated Stocks

Photos and other high resolution objects will not show up on this stock as crisp as those on a coated card stock since the ink absorbs into the stock when drying.

Frayed Edges

It is common to see "frayed / rough edges" on uncoated stocks especially with ink coverage that extends to the edge of the cards, when a stock is not coated the fibres can break loose when trimmed. Choosing a coated or laminated card will help avoid this issue.

Small Fonts Aren't Good

Due to the lower halftone resolution with Indigo printing, the minimum recommended text size is 6pt. With any small text, if grey use a black ink only version. If black, use 100% K.

Thin Lines Aren't Good

Anything thinner than a hairline stroke (0.25") - even at 100% K it may look choppy when printed due to Indigo print resolution.

Indigo Resolution Is Different Than Offset

There is a screen to the Indigo print which customers should be aware of if they're comparing to traditional offset printing.

No Rich Black

Don't use rich black on Indigo printing. 100% K will be just fine.

Heavy Coverage? Don't Round Corners

Heavy ink coverage can be problematic. When the cards rub together, the ink can rub off. This can be an issue for corner rounding so we generally advise clients with heavy coverage not to round corners.
