What finishes are available on the Cotton cards?
The Cotton stock is suitable for:
- CMYK printing
- Custom Shapes (die-cutting)
- Foiling (Gold, Silver and any other colour)
- Embossing and debossing
- Painted or foiled edges
Cotton stock is soft and uncoated, making it a great choice for specialty add-ons like letterpress, embossing or debossing. Please note that ultra thick 40pt Cotton is not available with standard CMYK print, as it is too thick to run through a printer. We recommend letterpress for designs on 40pt Cotton. All add-ons listed above can be added to the thinner 20pt Cotton options. If you have questions or concerns about this stock being suitable for your intended uses, please call our Customer Service Line for advice.
Please keep in mind, the Cotton stock is a refined softer stock, it is not as rigid as other stocks (such as the 18pt Brown Kraft stock).
How does the Cotton stock compare to other stocks?
Cotton paper has a soft textured feel. It is lighter in feeling than other cards of similar weight – and due to its flexibility, may actually feel thinner.
Cotton stock with offset inks
We offer Letterpress output using high-grade offset inks. This output and ink provides a much more solid colour coverage on the Cotton stock.
We can accept one-colour and two-colour print jobs for this process. The lighter impression used by the Letterpress output gives an offset-like finish at top quality.
The following example shows a comparison on the Cotton stock between the two.
Letterpress Output with Offset inks
Only vector-based designs are suitable for this output.
This output is available via a Print Quote only.
Can I see a sample of the Cotton cards?
Samples of the Cotton stock is available by ordering a Specialty Sample Pack.
What are the environmental credentials of the Cotton Stock?
Our Cotton stock is made from 100% recycled cotton fibres, which are a by-product of the textile industry that would otherwise be discarded and end up in landfills. The naturally white fibres also mean less chemical processing and waste during production of the stock.
This stock is also printed with our plant-based biomass inks.

Select File Format:
- Bleed Area
- Trim Area
- Safe Area
Bleed Area refers to images that extend to the very edges of a design. To prevent an unwanted white border from showing at the edge of your design, or for the design to appear slightly off-center, be sure to extend any background colors or design elements all the way to the edge of bleed (.125” past the trim on all four sides).
Trim Area refers to the amount of the image that will appear on your finished product. These areas will also be marked with ‘cut lines’ on your proof and are where we aim to cut your card.
Safety Area in most cases refers to 1/8 of an inch inside of the Trim Area. For thicker papers 20pt and up or wooden papers the Safety Area increases ¼ of an inch inside the Trim Area. we strongly recommend you keep important aspects of your design such as text and logos well inside of the Safety Area, otherwise, they may be cut off.
Design Considerations for Cotton
As this is an Uncoated card stock, we recommend reviewing: Design considerations for Uncoated. There are also a few additional considerations detailed below.
The Cotton stock has a slight texture – and the texture will show through your design and effect how colours appear. If you are looking for a clean and crisp smooth print, we would suggest selecting a Coated stock.
Also note, the front side of the Cotton stock is slightly more textured than the other.
With Digital Output printing colours do not appear solid. If you are looking for solid colours, we recommend printing with Letterpress output.
Due to the texture on this stock – it cannot hold fine detail as well. The finest detail we recommend is 1pt line-weight.
Heavy Coverage (lots of dark colours or excessive colour) is not suitable for this stock. If your design uses lots of colour and heavy coverage, we would suggest a coated stock for better results.
