Detroit Printing Stock Choices - Glossy card stock, 80# & 100# gloss text

Posted by Administrator on 1/23/2012
In the world of printing, there are almost no limits when it comes to printing methods, inks and paper stocks, but Discount Printing Detroit is here to help you make the best and most valuable choices as simply as possible.
For those in search of a rich, vibrant look to their brochures or sell sheets, the sophisticated touch of Discount Printing Detroit’s glossy finish products printed on 80# or 100# Text or Book Weight stock is the undoubted way to go. A sleek, high gloss finish over glossy stock gives your full-color project a much deeper blues and violets, as well as brighter reds and oranges.
Discount Printing Detroit offers glossy finish on card stocks, too. 14pt C2S (coated 2 sides) card stock, the very thick, heavy card stock that has become the standard for most of today’s full color printing such as business cards, postcards and door hangers to name a few. Glossy finishes available: Aqueous Coating (a light gloss), or “UV” Coating (high gloss) which is available from Discount Printing Detroit in most 14pt products at no extra charge.
12pt C1S (coated 1 side) card stock - Provides a perfect solution for printed pieces that want to feature a glossy finish on one side, but reserve the other side for writing. Aqueous or UV can be difficult to write on with most pens or markers. A UV coating or super high gloss coating is available in most 12pt products at no additional charge.
10pt C2S (coated 2 sides) card stock - Perfect for applications where a not-so-thick card stock is needed. We recommend this stock for our 11”x17” and 12”x18” full color posters.

16pt Card Stock - For those who want to stand out from the crowd a bit, this is an ultra-thick stock and is available in a matte/dull finish or UV. This stock offers what is definitely one of the thickest business cards available, and will absolutely set you apart at those Downtown Detroit or Metro Detroit business meetings. We also offer our custom full color restaurant drink coasters on the 16pt card stock.
80# Uncoated Recycled card stock - An excellent alternative to a glossy business card or postcard and with the recycled content in this stock, it is also a great way to go green and keep the environment in mind.
While there is no substitute for a high-quality glossy print in some cases, Discount Printing Detroit recognizes that glossy look isn’t always the most ideal finish for your project.
The uncoated, or offset printing method offers a more conservative, or classic look and feel and is an excellent alternative to the glossy finish.
Offset printing, on 60# Opaque Text Weight stock, provides your materials with a surface that is able to be written on, making it perfect for letterheads or customer forms.  Offered in almost any size, offsets projects can include custom notepads, reservation or appointment reminders, invitations or greeting cards, and much more.
Discount Printing Detroit offers a variety of styles and feels for all of your printing needs, as well as free Metro Detroit delivery. With convenient and easy 24/7 online ordering at, all of your printing needs can be fulfilled with just a few quick clicks of your mouse, or even swipes of your finger on your iPhone or iPad.
