The Matte or “Dull” finish provides a very unique finish for your printed material. Matte stock is very smooth and has a slight “eggshell” sheen. Matte/Dull Finish Business Cards are printed on an offset print press. By using an offset printing press your business cards are being produced at the highest quality available anywhere. Your photographs or intricate designs truly come to life when produced with an offset printing press. Please note that when using a matte finish, your florescent,vibrant colors will be a bit duller versus applying UV Gloss. Matte/Dull Finish can be applied to both sides or a single side.

Ordering a Special Print Option?
Ordering a special print option such as Spot UV, Color Foil, or even Embossing can be very exciting. However, we do require a separate file for these special print options. Each print option must have their own separate mask file.
When processing your order, you will be asked to upload a mask file for the specified print option selected. Separating a mask file from your print file can seem very difficult, but is actually really simple! A mask file is a white background with the print option filled with 100%K (black ink). The process of setting up a mask file for different print options is pretty uniform.
See below on how a mask file should look like:

Beware of Edge Cracking
Edge cracking is common on business cards when the card has a high value of ink such as dark colors. This typically happens because of the finish used as well as the colors used in the document. This is NOT caused by a dull blade. To avoid this problem, we advise that you use lighter colors! Another alternative is proceeding with a Silk Laminated Business Card. We will not reprint any order that contains edge cracking as this is a natural process when using a Finish versus a Laminate.
