Heavy Ink Coverage Can Cause Chipping
Coated cards have a thin clay coating that can chip when trimmed. Cards with heavy ink coverage, especially dark colours that goes all the way to the edge tend to really to show this chipping. We recommend silk laminated cards on cards with heavy coverage at the trim line.
Colour Will Vary
The upside of club-run printing is the shared savings, the downside is that we adjust colour globally to get the best overall colour for shared jobs. This means the colour of club-run printed items will vary through the run and will not match exactly on re-prints. Our Indigo printing service is better suited to colour critical work.
Not The Right Stock If You Like To Write On Your Cards
Coated cards aren’t ideal for writing on. If finished with a matte aqueous coating, sharpies may work if left to dry but ballpoint pens will smudge. If finished with a UV gloss coating, don’t even think about it. If this is a big deal, check out our uncoated card stock options.
Greys Can Shift
CMYK Process colours in the grey range and de-saturated images can shift in colour throughout the print run and may cause the greys to appear either cooler or warmer. For a neutral grey we recommend converting all grey values and de-saturated images to true greyscale consisting of K (black) only values.
Your Blue Might Not Really Be Blue
Due to the nature of club-run printing you may experience colour variation in solid fills of blue colour. For great blue results we recommend a 30% difference between your Cyan and Magenta levels to ensure a nice rich dark blue, rather than purple.
Use Rich Black
For the richest of deep dark blacks in print use 50/40/40/100 as the CMYK value. If printing small black text (or knocked out text) we recommend a k only black (0/0/0/100) to avoid mis-registration issues.
UV Coating Changes Colours
Colour on cards finished with a UV gloss coating will appear slightly darker and richer than cards finished with an aqueous coating.
