Other Options To Consider

Envelopes

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".

70# and 80# Cover Stocks

Budget Friendly

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.

Archival 100# and 110# Cover Stocks

Archival Media

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.

Printing Metallic Pearl Cards

Learn More About Printing Metallic Pearl Cards

Metallic Pearl paper is an outstanding and unique 14pt stock that shimmers in light when viewed from different angles. The material itself is embedded with Pearl fibers that give the paper an overall smooth, metallic appearance. Printing on this stock will give your CMYK colors a subtle shimmer; however, heavy ink densities or coverage may diminish the effect.

If you are searching for folded cards with envelopes on the metallic pearl media, you can find that in our "invitations" area.

A Special Note About the Paper

Keep in mind there is no white ink in CMYK offset printing, so any white areas in your design will be left unprinted revealing the stock itself. Avoid light colors especially gray tones. 

Art Specs for Metallic Pearl Cards

  • Make sure to add at least 0.25 inches to your order size.
  • Set your color mode to CMYK, not RGB.
  • Outline fonts and flatten files.
  • Lighter colors enhance the pearl stock.
  • White areas reveal card stock.

Digital Proofs Might Be Useful

Please select "digital proof" options if you desire to see a digital visualization 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 pearl paper, but it does allow you to visualize placement and folding.

A PDF digital proof is usually not required for most art. 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!

Shipping Pearl Cards

We calculate shipping fees during the checkout process. We always ship pearl cards with UPS even if you select USPS or a flat rate. You will have the opportunity to choose from a variety of expedited shipping methods. We ship metallic pearl cards inside durable mailer boxes for safe transportation (99% of the time).

 


 

FAQ for Metallic Pearl Cards

How thick is the metallic paper?

You have a couple of options for your Metallic cards: Our primary pearl metallic (14pt) and the Akuafoil (16pt). Each point (pt) is equal to .001 of an inch to give you a frame of reference.

Can I put foil accents or spot-gloss on pearl cards?

At the moment, a foil option is not available for metallic pearl cards, but we do offer an Akuafoil card that you may prefer.

Can I write on the Pearl postcard and business cards?

Unfortunately, the pearl cardstock isn’t great for writing on. If you’d like to add notes to your cards, our uncoated/matte paper might be a better choice.
