New Paper Stock Adds Interaction to Cards

February 3, 2010

Be honest – how many of you use your business cards solely for business? I keep a stack with me at all times, and I hand them out to folks I network with just as often as to people I’ve just met whom I’d like to invite to my next dinner party. In the latter event, I flip over my card and scrawl down my personal contact information.

But in the age of high gloss for maximum attention, sometimes the paper stock on business cards can prevent that personal touch. Enter PsPrint’s new C1S stock. Due to popular demand, PsPrint has introduced 14-point C1S paper stock, a thick, high-quality cover stock that’s ideal for projects requiring high resolution and sharp imagery. Essentially, you can ensure your logo, business name and contact information are represented in high gloss on one side, but the other side of the paper is matte, and you’re able to write on it. Think about the opportunities for such paper: business cards, referral cards, VIP cards, surveys, appointment cards and greeting cards. The C1S stock is just one type of paper available to PsPrint customers. If you’re not into shiny – or are just concerned about the environment – PsPrint also offers a 13-point matte cover stock that’s made with 100 percent recycled fiber and bleached without the use of chlorine compounds. It offers an elegant finish and sharp color reproduction. A third option is the 14-point C2S stock, which provides a glossy sheen on both sides of the paper. It’s a perfect match for when you want to do a mass mailing to your clients – you get a professional look on your cards, they’re all printed out for you, and they can even be sent out with direct mail services. All three paper stocks are included in PsPrint’s free sample kit.
