Card stock is a popular printing choice for clients that need something thicker and sturdier than paper stock, but slimmer and more budget friendly than a traditional screen board. The advantage of printing on card stock is that you can create a lightweight product that is easy to move and display, while enjoying greater durability than with regular paper printing. This stock is commonly used in many point of sale and commercial display applications because it offers fantastic printing quality and a solution that is much more damage resistant than traditional posters.

We can supply Card stock printed to custom sizes and shapes under 2400mm x 1200mm as well as a range of finishing options.

What Is The Finish Of The Ink & Can Card Be Laminated?

UV ink printed on Card has a matt finish. We do not offer any board coating services to change the finish of the ink or offer extra protection, but we have found that customers are very happy with the visibility and aesthetic of printing, as well as the durability of card stock.

What Card Stocks Are Available?

We currently offer a popular 400gsm stock that is double standard poster weight, yet lightweight and flexible. We also have a 270gsm block out card stock if something lighter is needed.

What Is the Largest Size Available?

The maximum size we offer card in is 1200mm x 2400mm.

How Long Will The Ink Last In Windows?

We use ink that is rated as lasting up to 2 year in sunlight. Please note that the stock itself can develop a "sunkissed“ yellow tint after a few weeks in direct sunlight.

Yes, we do offer card with a double sided printed option for multiple uses or point of sale displays that are visible from multiple sides.
