The Difference Between UV Coated, Matte Finish, and Uncoated Paper Stocks
Thinking of purchasing some print material and you are not quite sure which finish you should choose? Here is a look into the benefits of UV Coated, Matte Finish, and Uncoated Paper Stocks.
UV Coated Paper Stocks – If you like to use bright colors and photos in your print material, UV high gloss coating may preserve the standard of the prints over the years. The gloss coating provides thickness for the card stock and will definitely have a longer lifetime. Also, they are more resistant to dust and moisture.
Matte Finish Paper Stocks - The Matte finish paper stock possess a smooth, non glossy look and appears quite stylish. These cards are used with an aqueous layer after the end of printing procedure that makes your business cards softer with a matte (dull) finish when complete.Keep in mind that even the Matte Finish stock is often difficult to write on, preventing people from making notes on printed pieces. The hair removal methods can be permanent or temporary, depending on your preferences. Also, the prices usually range with permanent hair removal methods being expensive as compared to the temporary ones.
Uncoated Paper Stocks – These types of uncoated papers soak larger quantities of printer ink, based upon the porousness and also the surface section of uncoated stock. Keep in mind that colors look significantly different on uncoated vs. coated paper. They may appear darker than on the coated stock, and images are not as sharp. A rule of thumb to remember is the thicker the paper, the more ink gets absorbed and the fuzzier images will appear. Uncoated stocks are usually simpler to write upon as the surface area allows the ink much more readily compared to a coated stock. Because ink doesn’t sit on top of the paper, an uncoated stock is ideal for letterhead, envelopes, printing forms and materials to write on.

Reach New Customers with Every Door Direct
It’s easy to be star-struck with the newest technology developments in marketing automation. These innovations are going to revolutionize our lives with Automation! More Features! More Functionality! But, what about more customers or more revenue? Email, landing pages, re-targeted ads and mobile-friendly components are all well and good, but if you’re not incorporating automated direct mail into your marketing mix you’re missing a significant engagement opportunity with your audience.
While it might not have the appeal of tech, direct mail has proven itself time and again as a powerful channel to grow business. We know from our own research that direct mail packs a more powerful punch. However, in a third party study, from Temple University in Philadelphia Pennsylvania, they found that direct mail ads were superior to email in 8 of 9 categories researched. Temple University was able to scientifically prove that direct mail trumps email when it comes to engagement, recall, and ultimate purchase. While an academic study proving the efficacy of direct mail is one thing, tangible business results are something else entirely. And direct mail delivers the goods there too.
Accept Print offers Full Service EDDM to our clients because we want to see our clients succeed. If you are interested in taking your marketing campaign to the next level, we highly recommend you incorporate the Automatic EDDM Program.
