Slight bleeding of color, as the front was white and back was black.

Ordered 250qty, 20pt Soft Touch Business cards. Followed their advice, but black is still muted in my opinion. The feeling of them is akin to what other companies call (Silk) business cards. Nice and smooth, and fingerprints don’t stay on the card.

Otherwise, the print registration is very clean (I used VECTOR graphics), the CMYK gold lines look accurate, Spot Gloss looks great and is very tight on almost all cards. The picture doesn’t represent the spot gloss at all, but I can assure you, it does it’s job.

Please understand that some of your cards will NOT be perfect, it’s just part of the process. Cut lines, spot gloss registration, etc... can be off a bit on some cards. ALWAYS order a bit extra than you need so you can cherry pick the best ones and discard the rest. It’s a necessary evil.

BUT I accidentally uploaded and authorized the WRONG files so I can’t use them. I was going to use them as backers for enamel pins. BUT I don’t know what their Spot Gloss looks like with no print behind it. I’m an idiot. Very expensive mistake. Especially when you consider, even IF they were all correct, you still have to discard some that aren’t perfectly printed and cut evenly.

My advice to noob customers, DON’T ORDER WHEN YOU’RE EXHAUSTED!!! Have someone double check your work before you send stuff out.

I love the Raised Spot UV design but did not like the blackness of the card, the background looked washed out instead of smooth black.

I've ordered my tags from them before they offered the hole/tagging feature with no problems before. When I did order the holed tags last, the holes were centered and everything about them was perfect. Our reorder, which I doubled in quantity for price efficiency, has all of the holes a little off to the left and I believe the design was printed backwards. As mentioned in the "cons," the hole-puncture residue is sitting on the front design versus the back.
