Specialty Card Stocks for Greeting Cards and Invitations
18pt CS1 Card
For greeting cards, you may be searching for an ultra-shiny exterior and uncoated interior. The extra UV coating on the outside adds durability to an already thick 18pt card stock. Yet, the uncoated interior provides a good surface for writing on. Learn More
14pt Metallic Pearl paper sparkles in light when viewed from different angles. We embed the card itself with Pearl fibers that give the medium an overall smooth, metallic, and unique appearance. Learn More
100% Recycled Kraft
Kraft paper has natural fibers and subtle visible flecks promoting an organic look and feel. The stock is 100% recycled, advancing its rustic, eco-friendly appeal. Additionally, you can white ink for added "pop" to your designs. Learn More
Other Options To Consider
Envelopes With Color
For only one dollar, a white envelope accompanies every folded card. Ten stellar envelope colors are available for select 5" x 7" finishes. You can choose Natural and Kraft envelopes for smaller sizes such as 4.25" x 5.5" and 3.5" x 5".
The thinner card options, 70/80# covers, are excellent choices for distributing folded cards to large mailing lists, sending personal thank you cards, and writing to a friend.
We recommend the 100/110# or 120#/130# card options if you are selling on Etsy, selling retail card sets, or need to maintain a higher-end service or brand. The most popular choice belongs to the "Matte Card (100# Cover)" selection.
Find these different options by selecting Flat or Folded cards in our invitations collection.

Further Details About Printing Metallic Pearl Greeting Cards
Folded Metallic Pearl Cards are 10" x 7" (or 7" x 10") cards scored and folded in half. We thoughtfully score and fold each piece. We print all flat and folded cards edge-to-edge (also considered full-bleed or borderless). We only provide a margin if that area is present in the original artwork.
Single or Double?
Metallic Pearl Cards can be single or double-sided.
Digital Proofs Might Be Useful
Please indicate this in the "digital proof" options if you prefer to see a digital sample before printing occurs. A digital proof may delay an order by one business day but may prove helpful for proofreading purposes. The PDF will not showcase the appearance of the paper, but it does allow you to visualize placement and folding.
A PDF digital proof is usually not required for most artwork. Don't worry; we briefly review and inspect all art files for quality purposes. If we see obvious problems, we will contact you before production to ensure fabulous results!
Folding and Scoring
Our production staff scores all Metallic Pearl folded cards for your convenience. They are not folded.
