Business cards printed on this 22pt thick uncoated card stock will have a subtle matte finish and a very sturdy and stiff feel. Your business cards represent you and your company and, with that in mind, Clubcard Vancouver offers this smooth, bright white Cougar brand 160lb double thick stock printed on the most advanced Hewlett Packard Indigo printing press.

Combining Indigo printing technology with this 22pt uncoated card stock allows us to produce business cards with consistent colour each time you print plus vivid image reproduction.

Heavy Coverage? Think Twice

Heavy ink coverage can be problematic. When the cards rub together, the ink can rub off. Heavy coverage makes this more apparent. This can also be an issue for corner rounding, so we generally advise clients with heavy coverage not to round corners.

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.

Thin Lines Aren't Good

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

Indigo Resolution Is Different Than Offset

There is a screen to the Indigo print which customers should be aware of if they're comparing to traditional offset printing.

Minimum Line Thickness Of 0.5pt

Try to keep all line weights for graphics over 0.5pt. Anything under that can break up in the texture of the stipple.

For Small Elements, Simple Colour Builds Are Better

When working with small elements like lines or text, a simpler colour build is best to avoid misregistration. For example, 0/0/0/90 is a much better build than 20/20/20/40.
