Uncoated Business Cards - Overview

Uncoated business cards are printed in full color on both sides of a traditional card stock.

Uncoated stocks have a smooth finish and tight grain and texture.

When compared to high gloss coated cards, your design will appear a bit softer or lighter as the natural paper absorbs more ink.

Even though we produce these with offset quality printing, it is recommended to keep your designs to minimal line art with darker colors.

About the Paper Stock

What is a natural uncoated paper?

Uncoated paper is exactly that—paper that has no coating or finishing.

Without the added layer of coating, there is no glare on the paper surface, making it ideal for those who want a clear and straightforward appearance.

And since there is no coating, this type of paper is the most porous in texture, so ink soaks into it well.

Uncoated paper includes several kinds: smooth, linen, laid, vellum, and super smooth, to name a few. When choosing an uncoated paper, the smoothness level is a big factor to consider because aside from the texture, the smoothness also impacts ink holdout. Smoother sheets provide a more even ink distribution. So if you will be printing heavy solid colors, choose the smoothest option.

You’d want to use uncoated paper if you want to emphasize a sense of authenticity and simplicity to your marketing materials. For example, projects involving education, non-profits, and environmental initiatives can print materials using uncoated paper instead of going for glossy paper.

Special Finish Guidelines

PP_Applying_A_Mask_Image_01_1_

If your project includes foil stampingspot UV, embossing, or die cutting you will need to provide a mask file (per finish) alongside your design files.

  1. Create a black and white pdf file where all black areas have a color value of K = 100%  (C=0 M=0 Y=0 K=100)
  2. Black areas represent where you want the finish to be located and white means no finish will be applied.
  3. If your project contains more than one finish, you must provide separate mask files for each finish.
