- File Prep
Print incredibly thick Hang Tags on this 38pt smooth, uncoated card stock with a bright white matte surface. These ultra thick hang tags are printed in full color on an offset printing press with UV inks that dry instantly to ensure brilliant colors and HD quality reproduction of fine detailed artwork and photos.
These ultra thick hang tags are further enhanced with bespoke finishing options like:
- Foil stamping
- Painted edges
- Embossing or debossing
- Custom shape die-cutting
EMBOSSING / DEBOSSING COSNIDERATIONS
Elements that are embossed will appear as a debossed effect on the reverse of the card. Elements that are debossed may show a slight impression on the reverse.
Full coverage (aka floods) of ink on uncoated stocks are not recommended. While offset wet inks will absorb to some degree into the stock, the overall result of covering uncoated stocks with ink will produce a low sheen instead of a matte appearance. Heavy ink 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 instead.
