  • By Lori Sartre (Industry: Graphic Designer) on Aug 25, 2015 Verified Buyer
I love this paper. The "shimmer" helps to make pieces feel special. It prints great and the weight is perfect. Met Expectations? Met Expectation Usage? Party invite and support items Recommended: Yes, I would recommend this product.
  • By Very pretty but unusuable (Industry: Mother of the bride) on Mar 20, 2014 Verified Buyer
It looked really beautiful but we had a lot of problems getting it to print on a top-of-line digital press. We ended up being unable to use it because it jammed the press and the ink didn't cover along one side. Met Expectations? Below Expectation - We were unable to use it Usage? Wedding invitations Recommended: No, I would not recommend this product.

  • By Pote (Industry: Graphic Designer) on Feb 20, 2014 Verified Buyer
This was beautiful and just as expected. My client was impressed with the mockup and definitely will order, but in a different color. Your sampling is a great help. Met Expectations? Met Expectation Usage? Invitation mockup Recommended: Yes, I would recommend this product.
  • By Stace T (Industry: Non-Profit) on Jul 23, 2013 Verified Buyer
This product worked beautifully with our invitation design. The metallic finish gave our invite the "POP" we were looking for! Met Expectations? Exceeds Expectation - Great quality Usage? Black tie event Recommended: Yes, I would recommend this product.

  • By Mary (Industry: Bride) on May 14, 2013 Verified Buyer
This paper was beautiful. A very elegant & shimmery paper for a wedding. Good for someone who wants some sparkle or shine but doesn't want to pay an outrageous price :) Met Expectations? Exceeds Expectation Usage? wedding invitation sample Recommended: Yes, I would recommend this product.
  • By TJ (Industry: Graphic Designer) on May 2, 2013 Verified Buyer
Used this with my laser printer came out really nice. Curls after printing so needs to be weighted to get curl out but printed 2 sided well too. Met Expectations? Met Expectation Usage? Wedding Invites Recommended: Yes, I would recommend this product.

  • By Designs by Dee (Industry: Event Planner) on Apr 2, 2013 Verified Buyer
Great cardstock. Very heavy, slight metalic sheen. Used with very detailed die cuts, and paper did not break. Met Expectations? Usage? Formal Invitations Recommended: Yes, I would recommend this product.
  • By best deal custom graphics (Industry: Graphic Designer) on Jun 3, 2012 Verified Buyer
I love all the metallics. Their names are hard to guess, though, sometimes. This is a bright white. Has the gleam but no over-the-top glitz I've seen in some other brands of metallic. Of course the cardstock is super thick, almost so much that you have to double-score in order to fold well. Then lay it under a stack of encyclopedias to keep it from popping up. But for name cards at a dinner table where you don't want them flattened it's perfect. Met Expectations? Met Expectation Usage? haven't used it yet, I plan to use the paper version regularly if it ever gets offered Recommended: Yes, I would recommend this product.

  • By Lynae's Designs (Industry: Graphic Designer) on May 22, 2012 Verified Buyer
Love this cardstock for wedding invitations. Just a touch of bling! Met Expectations? Met Expectation Usage? Wedding Invitations Recommended: Yes, I would recommend this product.
  • By W Design (Industry: Graphic Designer) on Apr 5, 2012 Verified Buyer

  • By Mary R. (Industry: Mother of the Bride) on Feb 15, 2012 has a huge variety of colors and finishes for their cardstock. The website is easy to use and the customer service is excellent.

    Printing Options Explained

    One Color Printing:
    One color printing means that your design contains only one ink color. Gray scale designs, contain a range of grays, and is also considered one color printing

    Two-Color Printing:
    Two color printing means that your design contains two different ink colors.

    Full-Color Printing:
    All print designs with more than two colors require an ink process called full color printing, which is also known as CMYK. CMYK stands for Cyan, Magenta, Yellow and Key (key means black). These four ink colors can be combined to print an unlimited number of colors. Remember, if your design contains more than two colors, select full color.

    White Ink Printing:
    White ink is a special, unique ink that prints best on darker colored papers and stocks. White ink can be printed with CMYK printing if the design contains white and additional color elements.
