Silk vs. Suede Cardstock

Suede lamination gives your cards a richer texture when in hand, and sil...

Uncoated vs. Non-Laminated
All of our uncoated paper stocks can be written on in pen. This includes our uncoated, cotton, and linen stocks. Because these stocks are more absorbent, pen stays on the stock, but markers such as sharpies can bleed. Our coated paper stocks can also be written on with a few limitations. This inc...
Popularly referred to as Letterpress, our cotton cards give an old world feel. Unlike traditional letterpress cards, we achieve this effect with print and debossing.

Cardstock can affect the embossing, as different card stocks a...
Perforation is done by adding spaced out cuts in a line, which allows for a section of the card to be peeled off along that line, usually revealing something underneath. This can also be used for easy separation of a portion of the card, such as a ticket to be redeemed.
