(is the thickness of a standard business card)

  • Many colored stocks from light to dark colors for specialty projects.

  • Get your company and printed pieces noticed and stand out from the crowd with a premium paper stock.


Aqueous Coating

  • This clear coating is used to protect your printed pieces.

  • It provides a high-gloss surface that deters dirt and fingerprints.

  • Improves the durability of postcards as they go through the mail, and protects business cards as they get shuffled between clients.

  • It also looks beautiful on brochures, catalog covers, and stand-alone flyers. 

UV Coating

  • UV coating, often called liquid lamination, is a highly protective, ultra-shiny gloss coating that we apply over aqueous coating and then cure on a special machine using ultraviolet light.

  • The solvent-free UV coating provides an extremely hard finish that’s chemical and abrasion resistant.

  • It makes details really pop! On deep colors, it results in a stunning, almost wet appearance.

  • Perfect when you want a durable, environmentally-friendly piece with a richer, high-end look and feel.

  • NOTE: UV Coating cannot be used on the addressed side of mailed pieces, unless the address is printed first and then the coating is applied. 

Soft Touch® Coating

    • This coating creates a velvety texture.

    • The paper becomes “soft” to the touch and increases the tactile appeal.

    • Softer look and feel than aqueous or UV coating, while creating a barrier which is fingerprint resistant.

    • It dries fast, is non-yellowing, and is eco-friendly.

    • Luxurious and sophisticated are words often used to describe the finished product.
