Print elegant small size cards on 19pt thick suede laminated card stock that have a velvet soft feel. Print small squares, mini and skinny cards and trading cards on this substantial suede card stock. 

 

The suede lamination on these cards has a subtle matte appearance that is scuff and moisture-resistant while adding longevity and sturdiness to your cards. 

 

Your cards are printed in full colour with optional spot gloss on orders of 500 or more cards. Spot gloss printing lets you highlight elements of your design in high gloss that really stands out on the matte suede surface.

Coatings Make The Colour Vary

Without the use of spot gloss, colours under silk laminated coating will appear slightly muted and may alter the final result. (Even 100% K will appear somewhat charcoal in colour.) Colour matching of artwork is not suited to this product. Silk Laminated cards will mute your colours, if you add spot gloss to it will darken that specific section.

Fine Details Don't Translate Well To Spot UV

Due to the liquid nature of the spot gloss application, fine details may expand and fill in unexpectedly. If the spot gloss placement includes a lot of fine detail, tight corners, etc., the spot gloss will result in some filling in, especially at smaller sizes. Make sure that spot gloss designs are as simple and large as possible.

Don't Try To Spot UV Fine Text

Because there may be some slight shifting of the spot UV (spot gloss), we do not advise putting the spot UV over the text. You can expect up to 1/16" variance between the gloss and the CMYK layers, so trying to line up the thin gloss with small or thin text underneath may not turnout as expected.

Spot UV Can Shift

Spot gloss doesn't always line up 100% perfect. Usually "blind" spot gloss applications turn out the best. Aligning the spot gloss with CMYK elements often reduces the contrast of the spot gloss and any shift in alignment is noticeable. Spot gloss alone provides great contrast when applied over a solid fill or even just on the white matte stock. Another great effect is to have a pattern in just spot gloss in the background.
