16PT Cardstock with UV High Gloss or Matte Aqueous Coating (USA Version)

When you choose to print your full colour cards on Clubcard’s 16 point coated cardstock you will have several choices for the finish on your cards. This video outlines the high gloss UV and matte aqueous coating options.

First we will look at the high gloss UV coating option. You can see this card has a high gloss shiny finish which is due to the coating applied after the soy inks are printed on the coated cardstock. High gloss UV coating is a clear liquid that is dried by an ultra violet light at the end of the printing process on press. This coating gives a high shine to the card stock which enhances and enriches colours so they pop more than they would on a matte aqueous coated card.

Next we up is the matte aqueous coating option. As you can see this card has a low lustre matte appearance which is due to the aqueous coating applied after the soy inks are printed on the cardstock. Aqueous coating is a clear liquid applied at the end of the print process and is virtually undetectable, it is mainly used to seal and dry the stock so we can trim them without delay.
