Design Considerations for Cotton

As this is an Uncoated card stock, we recommend reviewing: Design considerations for Uncoated. There are also a few additional considerations detailed below.


The Cotton stock has a slight texture – and the texture will show through your design and effect how colours appear. If you are looking for a clean and crisp smooth print, we would suggest selecting a Coated stock.

Also note, the front side of the Cotton stock is slightly more textured than the other.

Color Output

With Digital Output printing colours do not appear solid. If you are looking for solid colours, we recommend printing with Letterpress output.

Fine Detail

Due to the texture on this stock – it cannot hold fine detail as well. The finest detail we recommend is 1pt line-weight.

Heavy Coverage

The use of heavy coverage or full color backgrounds is not suitable for this stock. Minimalistic designs are best! If your design has a lot of color and heavy coverage, we suggest a white and coated stock for optimal results.
