For a homegrown, personalized touch! Brown Kraft paper
is light brown with natural fibers and subtle visible flecks lending it a natural, organic look and feel. The uncoated smooth finish
provides excellent print quality, while the colored stock adds warmth and a rustic appeal to images. Optional white ink can be applied
in specific areas or all over giving you the flexibility to add contrast and brighten images. Brown Kraft is 100% recycled with a minimum
of 30% post-consumer waste content.
Please be aware that recycled and colored stocks may have slight color variation due to the materials used to manufacture the paper.
The flecks in the paper will also vary from sheet to sheet and press run to press run.
Brown Kraft has the option to add white ink as an overprint. The white will be a base for the CMYK providing a bright white surface
which will allow for vibrant, crisp color. Areas without white ink will appear darker due to the color of the stock. Similar to Spot
UV masks, White Mask files are separate from your artwork files. Black in the White Mask file indicates where white ink will be printed.
Make sure to create your mask file the same size as your artwork file. This will prevent alignment issues during printing.
Note: White Masks must be made in vector format and be saved as EPS or PDF. You may use gradients in the white ink mask file. Please
be aware that anything less than 100%K will be transparent and allow the brown stock to show through.
Use vector paths/shapes to create black color areas that will indicate where the white ink base will go. The rest of the areas will
show the Brown Kraft stock.
Remember the following when creating a white mask for your white ink base:
White ink base will be printed behind any color that’s in your Artwork Layer.
Areas with color but without a White Mask will be printed with color directly on the material.
Areas with color and a White Mask will be printed as opaque or solid color.
Areas with a White Mask and no color will be printed as white.
Even in this digital age there’s a good reason custom business card printing continues to be popular year after year for small businesses
and professionals. Here’s why you should make business cards:
It’s personal. Sending your contact information through email or text is convenient but impersonal. Handing
out business cards while conversing and making eye contact is how relationships are born.
It’s portable. Potential leads or contacts are everywhere. Having a business card ready to hand out at any time
ensures you will never miss an opportunity to make valuable business connections.
It’s affordable. They are relatively inexpensive which makes them a great marketing tool for small business
with a limited budget.
It’s memorable. First impressions are important, especially if you’re introducing your brand or yourself. With
business cards, you can create unique designs printed on high-quality paper stocks to get noticed and recognized. Your unique design
not only makes a great first impression but also acts as a good icebreaker.
