Our Premium Gray range of stocks offer unique textures, as well as unique shades to choose from. 16pt Vibrant Gray has a beautifully smooth uncoated surface that does not absorb ink as much as most other uncoated stocks, allowing for sharper detail and crisper print results. 18pt Dark Gray and 18pt Cool Gray stocks are smooth but with a more papery texture. 20pt Gray Pulp is a highly textured option with visual pulp fibres, that will be best suited to minimal ink coverage and less fine detail.
Do you offer coatings on Premium Gray?
Our signature Silk Matte coating is available on 16pt Vibrant Smooth Gray stock for a more sleek and professional finish. This is a great choice if you will be printing full bleed on both sides, as the added coating will protect the cards from showing fraying or chipping along the edges.

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.
