Choose from our three great paper options

All our paper options use stocks that are coated both sides. Our pricing is based on full color printing on both sides.

Satin

Satin is our premium paper option. The Satin coating on both sides produces a heftier card with a wonderful feel. Wear and moisture resistant, Satin makes a great first impression and is perfect for business cards. Satin cards are durable but this does make them difficult to write on. Sharpies or stick on labels are your best bet for writing and addressing Satin postcards.

Gloss

This paper option demonstrates color brilliantly given its glossy surface finish. Gloss cards are ideal for photography, illustration or any type of full-color artwork. The glossy surface is harder to write on, but ball point or permanent ink pens will work. Please note that inkjet printing may smear if not allowed to dry properly.

Responsible printing from 4by6.com

All our cards are printed on premium white SFI certified stock with VOC free soy-based inks. Soy-based inks are more environmentally friendly as they have lower levels of toxic emissions and make it easier to recycle the printed paper. The paper stock used for your cards is certified by the Sustainable Forest Initiative which ensures that the trees harvested to make the paper are sustainably managed to ensure the long-term health of our forests.
