Green and clean

We love to print, but not when it creates waste and pollution. We recycle 98% of everything that can be used again, and send the remaining 2% to become refuse-derived fuel instead of going to the landfill. We're committed to leading the industry in best environmental practices that we keep on improving.

Paper options

Silk, Gloss, Uncoated, Trucard, Gesso, Laid, Nettuno, Acquerello, Kraft, Pearl Polar, Pearl Oyster

Silk Silk coated paper has a low surface sheen and luxurious feel. It offers excellent ink to paper contrast, and printed colours appear bright and defined. The overall look is more low-key than gloss coated paper.

Gloss Gloss coated paper has a high surface shine and very smooth finish. Printed colours 'pop up' and appear extra vibrant, making it a favourite choice for promotional items. Ink dries well on gloss paper, so you're unlikely to need lamination.

Uncoated Our uncoated paper has a soft finish and tactile quality. Because it's more absorbent than coated paper, printed inks appear flatter. It's the best choice for stationery as it's easy to write on.

TruCard A specialist greeting card material that is coated and scratchproof on the outside, and uncoated inside so it's easy to write on. We use heavy 300gsm card for high-quality greeting cards that last.

Tintoretto Gesso A classy, textured paper for when you want to go luxe. Its pleasing 'rough-but-refined' surface demands to be touched. It's perfect for wedding invitations and other occasions when only the best will do.

Folds explained

Long edge fold Folded along the longest edge of a rectangular shape, so the card sits on its shortest side.

Short edge fold Folded along the shortest edge of a rectangular shape, so the card sits on its longest side.

Tent fold The fold runs along the top edge, and the card opens out from this in an inverted 'v' shape.

Finishes explained - Matt lamination gives a soft slightly dull finish, giving a sophisticated, modern look. Gloss lamination gives a high gloss finish that is not achieved with a gloss card. A lamination is recommended on solid colours or images for vibrancy (and protection!).

Finishing touches - Add envelopes for easy posting. Choose from nine different colours and uncoated, Kraft, laid or shimmer papers.

Double-sided explained - If you take a greeting card and open it up flat, you can see that one side of the sheet of paper forms the front and back of the card and the other side forms the inside of your card. If you select 'double-sided' for your printing, we'll print the front and back of your card and something on the inside.

48hr standard turnaround
