Affordable postcard printing is the big appeal with this uncoated 14pt card stock offering a cost-effective way to print top quality postcards that have a non-glossy finish and subtle, natural colour.

 

These matte surface postcards are also a great choice for postcards that can be written on with pens, pencils and markers.


14pt uncoated postcards are printed on a shared press run with several other cards on a 9 business day print production time. Sorry we are not able to rush print this option.

Can Uncoated Cards Have Frayed Edges?

It is common to see "frayed / rough edges" on uncoated stocks, especially with ink coverage that extends to the edge of the cards. When a stock is not coated the fibres can break loose when trimmed. Choosing a coated or laminated card will help avoid this issue.

Are Colours Subdued On Uncoated Cards?

Uncoated stocks produce subdued, muted colours that may appear dull compared to coated stocks with low lustre aqueous or high gloss UV coatings.

Can Uncoated Cards Crack If Scored?

The fiber in uncoated cards may break when scored to fold, producing what appears to be cracks in the paper. If you don't like crack we suggest, you choose a coated stock instead.

Can Grey Colours Shift?

CMYK Process colours in the grey range and de-saturated images can shift in colour throughout the print run and may cause the greys to appear either cooler or warmer. For a neutral grey, we recommend converting all grey values and de-saturated images to true greyscale consisting of K (black) only values.

Is there colour variation on solid blue?

Due to the nature of club-run printing, you may experience colour variation in solid fills of blue/ For great blue results, we recommend a 30% difference between your Cyan and Magenta levels to ensure a nice rich dark blue, rather than purple.

Should You Use Rich Black?

For the richest of deep dark blacks in print use 50/40/40/100 as the CMYK value. If printing small black text (or knocked out text) we recommend a k only black (0/0/0/100) to avoid misregistration issues.

Can I Use Small Text On Uncoated Cards?

Uncoated stocks are more grainy and fibrous than other stocks, so if you are looking for really sharp lines or micro text a coated stock will be up to that challenge.

Can I Write On Uncoated Cards?

Write up a storm! Unlike our coated options, these cards work perfect as stamp cards, appointment cards, or a business card that you can scrawl a note across the back. You've found a match.
