Silk Laminated Business Cards - Overview

About Silk Laminated Business Cards

Graphic designers and customers alike choose silk business cards for a variety of reasons. We believe the most beneficial qualities of the silk business card production method are as follows:

Silk… a tactile experience

When a prospect holds a silk card in their hands, as soon as they run their fingers across the stock they instantly know there is something different about this card. The silky-smooth, cool-to-the-touch surface gives an instant impression of luxury and high-end appeal.

Distinctive Silk Matte Color

Many photographers specifically request silk lamination for the desired effect it has on their photos and the colors of their design. It’s muting or softening effect can be compared to applying a very very subtle Instagram filter.

Silk adds Thickness & Durability

Our standard 16 pt cover stock is quite substantial but after the silk laminate is applied the thickness increases to 18 pt. Where are standard cards will begin to crease when folded, due to the thick paper stock, with silk the cards will now be very bendable, flexible and to some degree will snap back to form.

Silk gives Perfect Edges

Cards printed with heavy or solid ink coverage, especially dark colors like black and blue, on our standard 16pt matte finish may show flecks chipping off of the edge of the cards after trimming. Choosing silk is the best way to avoid chipped edges entirely. The fibers of the card stock are sandwiched between the two layers of the laminate, and when trimmed, the laminate will preserve the integrity of the stock preventing any fraying at the edges.

Stunning Contrast with Spot UV

One of the most popular production combinations (especially with our graphic design customers) is to use silk lamination in conjunction with spot UV. Although using spot UV on our standard 16pt matte stock creates a beautiful visual and tactile contrast, adding the silk layer makes that contrast even more dramatic as your prospect runs their finger over the smooth matte and shiny gloss areas of your card.

About the Paper Stock

What is silk matte laminated paper?

A silk matte laminated paper is a type of paper coated with a matte plastic film that makes it durable yet smooth to the touch. The material is neither 100% shiny nor 100% matte. Even with a silky suede-like texture, you should be able to write on its surface with a permanent marker or a standard ballpoint pen.

This durable and subtly textured finish is achieved through a process called silk lamination. While it’s pretty similar to traditional lamination, it produces classier and more durable paper products.

Silk lamination creates a unique coating that protects the paper from creases, scratches, rips, stains, sun damage, and smudges. It even provides some level of water resistance. That means you can wipe down a card with a damp cloth without ruining its print or the paper itself. Even when a potential client uses your card as a coaster, your contact details should remain undamaged.

We highly recommend entrepreneurs to use silk matte laminated paper for business cards. With this material, you can make great first impressions and convey how you pay close attention to detail. That should leave even the pickiest customers impressed with your brand.
