The Ultimate Cheat Sheet for Card Stocks & Finishes

Each type of stock or finish brings out different vibrancy in plastic cards, adding a shine or flat look. You can add two different finishes to cards, one on each side, bringing out different colors or making it a writable surface. Some stocks are only available on one side (pearl) due to the way the stock is created before it is printed on. The most popular finishes are; Matte, Satin, and Gloss. The stocks we offer in house are Frosted Clear, Metallic, Clear, and White. I'll walk you through a few examples of cards we have made with each stock and finish so you can get a sense of what stock/ finishes you want to use.
