Clubcard Vancouver prints small cards on this natural kraft 18pt stock in sizes from 2" x 2" squares up to 5" x 3.5" trading card sizes.

 

Your art is printed in full colour with optional white ink at surprisingly affordable prices for small business cards, skinny cards, jewellery tags, trading cards, square cards and all sorts of mini cards with a wide range of colour options. 


When you print on the surface of this natural kraft stock, your colours will appear darker since we are printing on light brown cardstock and not white cardstock. Many of our clients use the optional spot white ink which is printed under the full colour artwork to "back-up" your artwork and brighten colours in addition to adding white design elements and graphics. 

White Ink Is Not Opaque

The white ink used in this print method is not opaque and is somewhat transparent when applied to the Natural Kraft stock. It is not designed as a solid ink, but is more for design elements or to be used as a white backup to brighten the CMYK colours. Please request samples to see examples of the white ink prior to placing your order.

No Rich Black, Use K Only Greys

For best results, don't use rich black on 18pt Natural Kraft stock, as it can cause issues with mis-registration. 100% K will be just fine. If using grey, a black-ink only grey will give also give you best results.

Separate File or Artboard Indicating Spot White Required

For spot white printing we require you supply a separate additional page showing the spot white areas (eg: images, text etc.). For more information on setting up spot white for the 18pt Natural Kraft Cards, you can view our Spot Gloss tutorial as the setup is the same.

Spot White And CMYK Layers May Not Align Perfectly

Tightly registered detail using spot white can cause 'haloing', where the spot white might not exactly align with the CMYK elements. Anywhere that the white and CMYK tightly register and end together should be avoided.

Some Colours Are Hard To Read On This Stock

Some colours are hard to read due to the colour of this card stock. Yellow/oranges, med browns and greens are good examples. When in doubt, default to a darker colour!

Small Fonts Aren't Good

The minimum recommended text size is 6pt. With any small text, if grey use a Black Ink Only version; if Black, use 100% K to prevent issues with misregistration.

Thin Lines Aren't Good

Anything thinner than a hairline stroke (0.25") - even at 100% K may look choppy when printed due to digital print resolution.
