The use of heavy ink coverage or full color backgrounds is not suitable for this stock. If your design has a full color background on one side only and is white on the other, the ink will also rub or transfer onto the white side. Minimalistic designs and the use of ample white space are best! If your design has a lot of color and heavy coverage, we suggest choosing a white and coated stock for optimal results such as our 16pt stock with Silk Matte coating.
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.
With Digital Output printing colours do not appear solid. If you are looking for solid colours, we recommend printing with Letterpress output.
Due to the texture on this stock – it cannot hold fine detail as well. The finest detail we recommend is 1pt line-weight.
As this is an Uncoated card stock, we recommend reviewing: Design considerations for Uncoated. There are also a few additional considerations detailed below.
