Stipple textured bookmarks printed on thick and sturdy 24 point stock have a subtle pebbled feel and appearance plus stiffness to ensure your bookmarks hold up over time, offering a balance of form and function.
When you require color consistency and accuracy on future reprints and reorders, these stipple bookmarks are a great choice as they are printed on a Hewlett Packard Indigo press to provide consistent color every time you order.
Custom size bookmarks are available on this printing option: just order a size listed online that will fit your custom and indicate the trim size in your order notes.
Can I Use Heavy Coverage On Stipple Cards?
Heavy ink coverage can be problematic. When the cards rub together, the ink can rub off. Heavy coverage makes this more apparent. This can also be an issue for corner rounding, so we generally advise clients with heavy coverage not to round corners.
Can I Use Small Fonts On Stipple Cards?
The minimum recommended text size is 6pt. With any small text, if grey use a black ink only version; if Black, use 100% K.
Can I Use Thin Lines On Stipple Cards?
Anything thinner than a hairline stroke (0.25") - even at 100% K may look choppy when printed due to Indigo print resolution.
Is Indigo Resolution Different From Offset?
There is a screen to the Indigo print which customers should be aware of if they're comparing to traditional offset printing.
What Is The Minimum Line Thickness For Stipple Cards?
Try to keep all line weights for graphics over 0.5pt. Anything under that can break up in the texture of the stipple.
What Colors Should I Use For Small Elements?
When working with small elements like lines or text, a simpler color build is best to avoid misregistration. For example, 0/0/0/90 is a much better build than 20/20/20/40.
What Application Is Stipple Card Stock Good For?
The finely stippled textured stock lends itself well to many applications like wedding invitations, business cards or graphics that are minimal (with lots of negative space).
Proofing Will Delay Production Timelines
