Smooth Matte - Natural White

 

 

The same as above, just a warmer, slightly creamier tone when compared to it's Bright White brother. Suited to jobs with more white space than actual printed artwork, where it can add a subtle old-world feel, or as the name suggests, a more natural look. Colours could be slightly less accurate and less vibrant when compared to the Bright White equivalent, but with flooded colours over the page (like in the sample images of the dog and cat), you'll be hard pressed to notice a difference. If in doubt, go for Bright White instead.

The two different stock weights match each other in tone and texture, with the 350gsm card being about two and a half times as thick as the 130gsm paper.

  • Portfolio Covers, Business Cards, Cards: Bravo Flat White 350gsm. CMYK Print.

Heavy Textured Matte - Bright White

 

 

The most tactile paper available. Heavily textured uncoated matte paper with great colour rendition and good detail. The covers and internal pages match each other in tone and texture, with the covers being about twice as thick as the internal sheets. This is a a good option for those seeking a more organic, premium feel. The downside is that pages may get dirty more easily than other stock options. 

The two different stock weights match each other in tone and texture, with the 270gsm card being about two and a half times as thick as the 118gsm paper.

  • Portfolio Internal Pages: Mohawk Via Felt 118gsm Bright White. CMYK Print.

Super Smooth Satin - Bright White

 

 

High detail, high durability. A very smooth coated satin stock that reproduces images better than the rest. The covers and internal pages match each other in tone and texture, with the covers being about twice as thick as the internal sheets. The covers are also celloglazed, meaning they have a thin layer of satin/matte plastic fused over the top of the print for added durability. 

The two different stock weights match each other in tone and texture, with the 350gsm card being about twice as thick as the 150gsm paper.

  • Portfolio Covers, Business Cards, Cards: Silk HD Matte 350gsm White. CMYK Print. Matte Celloglazed.

Special - Black Matte

 

 

The covers are made from a black card stock that can be printed on in either black or white ink. Black ink gives a subtle but classy "black-on-black" look, while white ink really pops off the page. Note that the white ink will not be fluorescent bright white. It is a very light shade of grey because of the way the black stock can show through from underneath. You will need to set your artwork up in a special way if you want white ink - see our artwork set-up page for more info.

For Portfolios, Books & Bookets (where indicated by "Special Black Matte Covers"): The two different stock weights do not match each other. The 320gsm card being the black stock, and the internal pages are 160gsm smooth bright white paper.

  • Portfolio Covers, Business Cards, Cards: Popset Digital 320gsm Black. Black Ink (K) OR White Ink Print.
  • Portfolio Internal Pages: Knight Digital Smooth 160gsm White. CMYK Print.

 

Special - Kraft Matte

 

 

Natural earthy goodness. The covers are from a recycled card stock that resembles brown kraft paper. White or black ink goes really well here, but you can choose to print in full CMYK colour instead. Keep in mind colours will not be as vibrant as they are when on white paper because the brown kraft colour is going to show through. You will need to set your artwork up in a special way if you want white ink - see our artwork set-up page for more info.

For Portfolios, Books & Bookets (where indicated by "Special Kraft Matte Covers"): The two different stock weights do not match each other. The 350gsm card being the kraft stock, and the internal pages are 160gsm smooth bright white paper.
