We can print a full background color if desired; however, this may print inconsistently on the uncoated stock, especially if dark colors are used.
Additionally, when uncoated stocks are digitally printed, the printed areas will appear to have a sheen on top. This is not a gloss but rather the result of how toner prints onto the stock. Please keep this in mind if you intend on writing on your cards with a pencil or pen. If your design has a high ink coverage, it may be tough to write on the printed area with a pencil or pen. It will be best to use a permanent marker or alter the design so that there's more white space.
For the highest quality, fully matte and no shine finish, choose offset notepads. We currently offer offset notepads via a customer order and the minimum quantity to order is 250 (for 1 set / design). If you are interested in a quote, please contact our Customer Service team and provide complete details of your notepad project (i.e. size, stock, quantity, and sheets per pad)
