As the name implies, the paper has no coat or special finish. The surface in this type of paper is really porous, which makes it great for absorbing inks and has no type of glare or gloss; this results in warmer colors and softer prints. The uncoated surface is the best one for writing on without any smudging or smearing. For reference, all bond paper is uncoated.
Matte Finish Paper
Matte Finish is a light clay coating that provides a smoother, non-glossy surface and a more stylish feel. Matte finish is good for producing sharper prints with vibrant colors at the cost of causing some smearing and making it difficult to write on. Here's a close up of how the surface of a Matte Coated Paper looks like:
It’s a special varnish that you can apply to your design to make it pop. You can use it on your logo or some text to make it glossy, creating contrast between the paper stock and your design. The difference with UV coating is that it is applied on the entire surface of the paper. We also offer Spot Raised UV which adds a little bevel to the designated area and gives it a whole other dimension, kind of a shiny embossed finish.
This finish uses a fast and cost-effective process where a metal-like foil is applied on top of your design and then curated with UV light. This process results in a metallic shine effect in a wide array of colors that will make all your designs shimmer and pop to the eye.
Foil stamping consists in machines that use heat to transfer metallic foil to a specific area of your design. We offer Bronce, Silver and Gold color foil and it’s a great way to add a metallic shine to your design for eye-catching results.
Brown paper stock with a porous surface and high tear resistance. Just like with the Uncoated Paper, the porous surface makes it great for absorbing inks and has no type of glare or gloss; this results in warmer colors and softer prints. The unique brown color gives a unique look to your cards and printed products.
This paper has no coat or special finish. Hence, the surface in this type of paper is really porous and it's great for writing without smearing. In addition, this paper is opaque, meaning that images printed on the other side won't show through.
Natural / Off-White
This paper stock has an uv coat that makes the surface glossy but makes it difficult to write on it. It also has a creamy color instead of a pure white surface for a more distinguish look in your designs.
This type of finish has a golden shimmer in the surface, adding a touch of elegance to the designs.
Similar to the Champagne Shimmer, but with a pearlescent metal-like shine instead.
