Paper, The Way We See It

Paper can be such a simple thing, but then again, at GotPrint, paper is kind of a big deal. It’s why we have such a wide selection of different paper stocks for our customers to choose from. From glossy to dull, recycled (we try to be eco-friendly when we can!) to uncoated, we love it all, and we hope you do too.

In fact, paper is so important to us, we go through great length to provide specific names and descriptions for each, to ensure you understand the differences between our stocks. To start, we’ll go over our various paper stock options for business cards and postcards, which are two of our most popular products!

14 pt. Gloss Coated Cover with UV Coating
The Gloss Coated Cover is a long-lasting, heavy, and thick card stock with Gloss UV Coating on the surface for exquisite shine and vibrant colors that come to life—it’s no wonder it’s our most popular stock! This stock has high color saturation for exquisite contrast and range. Our rich Gloss UV Coating has the highest quality and provides protection against stains and damage. Just keep in mind that you cannot write or print on products with Gloss UV Coating.
