A NOTE ON PRINTING:
If you plan to use any of these stocks as your printed pieces, please review the recommendations below.
Smooth Metallic cardstocks in this section are very smooth and slick, and may not work well for printing at home. Opt instead for commercial printing, or you may want to try the C1 matte stock (or possibly C2 if you have a laser printer). As with any of the stocks on our site we recommend you test it with your printer to ensure printability prior to placing a large order.
Textured Metallic cardstocks are not recommended for most inkjet printers or laser printers. However, some stocks may work with laser printers (such as those rated for cardstock--best with a straight-through path) although we have had limited success printing on the smooth side with certain laser printers on some cardstocks. Most stocks are suitable for commercial printing, including offset, thermography, Light inks printed on darker stocks by laser, inkjet or thermography are not recommended (either C1 or C2); opt instead for flat offset, foil, engraving, or letterpress printing to achieve optimal results using light ink on dark stock.We recommend that you test any cardstock with your printer to ensure printability prior to placing a large order. Samples cardstocks are available with our sample swatchbook.
Duplex cardstocks are very heavy and will not likely feed through a laser printer. These are better suited to printing on a commercial press. It may be possible to print with an inkjet, as these are sometimes able to handle thicker stock, but please test before ordering a large quantity to be sure you will have success.
^ This symbol indicates that the texture is also visible (although to a lesser degree) on the back side. Other textured metallics are smooth on the reverse. Most of the C3 stocks are 90 lb cover to 105 lb cover.
Envelope Icon represents cardstock colors that also have envelopes in a matching stock.
*Note on Jupiter and Garnet Cardstocks from the paper manufacturer: "It has been brought to our attention that Garnet and Jupiter colors can rub off on lighter colors under certain conditions and uses. We are not entirely sure why some colors are doing this while others are not. Though the problem is limited at this point we would caution you to be careful when using these colors. In being made aware of this, we have also noticed the phenomenon potentially with Lapis, Pennyite, and Antique Gold." -- From EnvelopMe.com: We believe the problem to be more prevalent during the hot, humid summer months, and recommend that you take extra care during these times with any of the darker/intense colors. You may request tissues to use with your invitation, and also remember to have the post-office hand-cancel your envelopes.
A note on color: The colors shown above will vary by monitor and are not intended to be an exact representation of the actual paper color.
A note on color names: Please note that different retail establishments may use different color names for the same or comparable colors, and others may use the same name for an entirely different color or product. If you have seen a color elsewhere, please be sure that the product name was from the official Envelopments product line, and not from another brand. We cannot guarantee that one of our products will match another line purchased elsewhere, nor can we guess the color that will coordinate with another brand that we have not seen. The color names used on this site are the official Envelopments® brand names, and many of these colors are exclusive to the Envelopments® product line.
