What is the difference between matte and glossy business cards?
Matte business cards can have a softer, more subtle look than their glossy counterparts. They often feature slightly muted colors and tones, creating a more sophisticated appearance. Glossy business cards tend to stand out more and are usually more vibrant in color due to their shiny finish. However, both types of cards provide a professional look that conveys the same level of quality.
What kind of glossy paper is used for glossy business cards?
Glossy business cards are typically printed on thick, high-quality card stock with a smooth finish that provides a glossy, shiny look. This type of paper offers superior durability as well as excellent color reproduction and vibrancy that makes your designs really stand out. Most commonly used for gloss business cards is a heavier weight card stock such as 16pt or 22pt Premium Gloss Coated Cover Card Stock which has been pre-coated with a UV coating prior to printing.
What is High Gloss UV Coating?
High Gloss UV Coating is an additional layer applied over printed materials to enhance the vibrancy of your images and colors while providing protection from scratches, smudges, fading, and water damage. The coating also adds texture to your design giving it a high-end look that will help your materials stand out from the rest. UV coating can be applied as Full-UV or Spot-UV depending on the desired effect desired by the customer.
Can you write on glossy business cards?
Yes! Glossy business cards can be written on provided they are printed on 16pt or thicker premium card stocks which have been pre-coated with a UV coating before printing. As long as you use an appropriate pen or marker designed for writing on coated surfaces such as our Fiber Tip Pens by Pilot G2 Metallic then you should be able to write without any issue!
Are double sided glossy business cards available?
Absolutely! Double sided gloss business cards can be produced using either Full-UV or Spot-UV finishes depending on what type of effect you are looking for in your design. Both options will provide you with vivid colors and crisp text while protecting both sides of your card against scratches, smudges, fading, and water damage so you can use them confidently knowing they will last longer than uncoated versions!
How does pearl vs glossy business cards compare?
Pearl finish business cards give off an elegant pearlized sheen when held under light which gives them an eye catching effect compared to gloss finishes which tend to reflect light directly back at its source creating sharper reflections rather than soft diffused lighting effects like pearlescent finishes do. Both options offer great protection from wear and tear with gloss providing better durability against smudges while pearlescent offers better scratch resistance making it ideal for those who want higher end looking but still durable materials!
What about 22pt premium glossy business cards?
22pt Premium Glossy Business Cards provide robust protection against wear and tear due to their heavier weight card stock combined with pre-coated UV coating applied before printing giving them superior durability compared to thinner 16pt card stocks without sacrificing clarity or vibrancy in your designs! They also offer excellent print quality along with good foldability so they can fit into small pockets without causing creasing or warping making them perfect for networking events where space is limited but style matters most!
How do I know if I should choose full uv or spot uv for my glossy business cards?
Full UV includes covering both sides of the card entirely with UV coating whereas Spot UV only covers certain parts chosen by designer offering different looks depending on how it’s applied which could range from accents pieces being highlighted through contrast or focusing attention onto certain aspects of design like logo’s etc... In terms of how much coverage needed depends largely upon usage frequency but generally speaking if expected use will exceed everyday norm then full coverage would be better choice since it’s stronger at resisting wear & tear all around versus spot uv which focuses mainly onto one aspect thus reducing overall coverage leading towards faster deterioration over time if abused too much in regular basis
