Ink colours will appear differently over the coloured stocks, compared to how they appear when printed on a white paper.
The amount of colour shift will vary depending on the colours used in your design and the colour of the paper you choose. Stocks with more intense or deeper shades will have a more obvious affect on the printed colours, and are therefore recommended to print with black ink, or with a white ink as an underlay for opaque lighter colours or for a solid white print.
Mahogany Red is the darkest stock within this collection, and is only available to order with a foil stamped design, as printed ink cannot be seen.
If you are planning to print a full colour CMYK design on one of the coloured stocks, it is important to note that we may recommend white ink as an underlay if you are printing very light colours.
Orders placed without white ink: the elements in your design that are white will be considered blank (the natural colour of the paper). The paper stock will effect the way that colours appear due to the slightly translucent quality of the ink (you will see the paper through the ink, especially in lighter shades). Lighter ink shades or colours similar to the colour of the paper you are printing on may not be very visible, as there won't be enough contrast between the paper colour and the ink. This occurs most often with light and pastel colours. If a white or light coloured design is important to your design, you should order this product with white ink printing.
