Great stationery starts with the right letterhead and this uncoated 70lb paper stock is a solid choice to convey your brand identity. While emails provide instant communication, printed letters on formal letterhead get everyone's attention.
Your artwork is printed in full color with orders of 250 sheets printed on the digital press while orders of 500 or more sheets are printed on an offset press using soy inks and the most advanced stochastic screen-printing technology.
Your letterhead is printed and shipped within an estimated 5 business days!
Colors More Muted on Uncoated Stockd
Uncoated stocks will affect the color of your print as more ink is absorbed into the stock. You will see less saturation in the colors compared to if printing on a coated stock.
Only Use Offset Printed Letterhead in your Laser Printer
Only offset printed letterhead can safely be used in a laser printer. Using a digitally printed letterhead in a laser printer can damage the home or office printer because, unlike the liquid inks used with offset, the digital toner may cause issues.
Essence of Luxury
Less is more! These are premium stocks and the more negative space that the artwork has, the more the stock will provide an essence of luxury to the finished product.
Color Will Vary
The upside of club-run printing is the shared savings, the downside is that we adjust color globally to get the best overall color for shared jobs. This means the color of club-run printed items will vary through the run and will not match exactly on re-prints.
Greys Can Shift
CMYK Process colors in the grey range and de-saturated images can shift in color 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 color variation in solid fills of blue. 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 misregistration issues.
This Paper Is Perfect for Writing On
Write up a storm! Unlike our coated options, these letterheards can be written on with a pen or pencil and even be stamped without the risk of smudging. You've found a match!
Uncoated Papers Have More Texture that May not Work Well with Small Text
This paper stock is a little bit grainier than other stocks, so if you are looking for very sharp text, this might not be the best paper stock for that or graphics that require razer sharp edges.
