14pt Uncoated Cover

You may be familiar with this type of stock from thick index cards, though the finish is much higher quality.

This is a very versatile stock. The uncoated finish is good when you don't want a slick and shiny look, while the firm 14 Pt. stock folds precisely.

16 Pt C1S Gloss Cover

You may be familiar with this type of stock from heavy bookmarks or other products printed on a semi-rigid card stock.

This is our thickest stock and comes with a gloss coating on one side. Because of its thickness, it is not ideal for folding unless scored first.

16 Pt C2S Gloss Cover

You may be familiar with this type of stock from heavy bookmarks or other products printed on a semi-rigid card stock.

This is our thickest stock and comes with a gloss coating on both sides. Because of its thickness, it is not ideal for folding unless scored first.

    Quantity

    The quantity available is dependent on the order specifications you choose. To see available quantities, complete all order specifications in the pricing calculator and click on the "Quantity" dropdown menu.

    Due to our printing process, we print in specific quantity increments. If you would like an amount not listed in the pricing calculator, you have two options.

    1. Request a custom estimate for the specific quantity you need
    2. Order a larger quantity and ask us to ship only what you need

    Ordering one of our specified quantities is generally more affordable than a custom estimate. Let us know how many units you would like shipped and we will recycle the excess for you. Simply choose the amount of items you would like recycled under the "shipping" section after placing your order.

    For example, if you would like 700 units, you can order 1000 units and let us know you only want 700 shipped. We will responsibly dispose of the extras.

    We typically print more than the quantity ordered. Because printing is a manufacturing process, the total finished quantity may vary. We usually ship a few more than you order, but sometimes quantities can vary +/- 5%. Standard industry procedure is to consider this range shipment in full.

    When to choose Offset

    4-Color Offset printing is ideal for lower prices on large quantity orders or any time you would like coating on your products.

    Almost always, people choose this option when ordering large quantities.
