Don't forget to include a PDF or hard copy color with your order to make make sure your artwork appears exactly as expected before we print.Full Coverage Not Recommended
Full coverage (aka floods of ink) on uncoated stocks are not recommended on this digitally printed card stock. We use a polymer based toner on this print method and the overall result of covering uncoated stocks in this toner will produce a low sheen instead of a matte appearance. Heavy coverage may also highlight the appearance of natural fibres on uncoated stocks. If your art / design includes heavy ink coverage and you want cards with a matte appearance we recommend one of our laminated stocks.
