When you design a large-size card or oversized postcard, it's important to print on a stock that has enough substance to hold up and not flop over like a handful of wet noodles. This hefty 22pt thick uncoated cardstock is up to the task and will look great while performing. Clubcard Vancouver prints large cards on Cougar Brand 165lb DTC - double thick cover weight stock which equals 22pt in thickness in custom and standard sizes from 6" x 8" up to 8.5" x 11".

To provide you with outstanding colour consistency and beautiful image reproduction, your large cards will be printed on a state of the art Hewlett Packard Indigo printing press that utilizes a hybrid mix of the best of offset and digital printing technology to ensure your large cards print perfectly every time.

Whatever design you have in mind, you can trust that we will bring over two decades of print expertise and knowledge to the table ensuring your cards look great!

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.
