Can I Get A Color Proof For 14pt Coated Cards?
If you are concerned about color, be sure to request a printed proof for this product. This gives you a chance to see how the colors and finish turns out before we print your project.
Should I Use Solid Coverage With 14pt Coated Cards?
Due to limitations with digital printing, solid coverage colors may show striations or streaks. We do not recommend printing artwork with large areas of solid coverage. The finished product may show mottling, striations and less than even color results throughout the run. Make sure to request a printed proof when ordering these cards, so you get to see how it looks!
What Does The Gloss Look Like On 14pt Coated Cards?
This stock is coated prior to printing, and it is more of a semi-gloss sheen than a high gloss. When in doubt, ask for a free sample pack to review this stock prior to ordering.
Will Gradients Show Banding On 14pt Coated Cards?
Sometimes gradients aren't as smooth in print as they are on screen. Request a printed proof when placing your order so you can see first hand how it will turn out prior to production.
What Values Should I Use For Black And Grey Colors?
Unlike offset, we recommend using a 100% K build for black, and black only values for greys. This ensures the crispest edges and a neutral grey.
What Is The Difference Between C1S vs. C2S vs. Uncoated?
Depending on artwork, it may print better on Uncoated, or Coated stocks. For artwork with a lot of white or empty space, we would generally recommend an uncoated stock. For artwork with full and/or heavy coverage, we will recommend a coated stock (C2S). Artwork with heavy coverage on one side, and a lot of white space on the other, we would recommend a coated 1 side stock (C1S).
Is There Color Variation On Solid Blue?
For great blue results, we recommend a 30% difference between your Cyan and Magenta levels to ensure a nice rich dark blue, rather than purple.
