It is a strong card choice for designs that feature delicate watercolor elements or designs that have pastel elements that need help standing out. We love this card stock because while you’re able to add finishing options to it to complete your design(raised ink, embossing, foiling etc), it looks brilliant on its own.

Many metallic foil colors are available! Like gold matte, gold glossy, silver matte, silver glossy, red, green, blue, pink and black.
WHAT IS INK EMBOSSING: This process will create a raised or three dimensional logo or name on your business card. We will first print with ink and embossing is applied over. Embossing applied to a printed image. It refers to embossing over ink.
DIFFERENCE FROM BLIND EMBOSSING : This type of embossing is done directly over the stock, not on any ink(color). This creates an impression and bears the same color as the paper(white).
NOTE : Either EMBOSSING or DEBOSSING(reverse of embossing) is possible for same price, please leave a note telling us what you want.
WHAT IS RAISED INK: This offers benefits that are better than the existing press embossing by using special process called ‘Epoxy’. It is similar to UV spot coating but has more raised effect. This clear substance will be applied over designate printed area and creating unique raised effect on the business card surface.
