What Weight of Paper is Best for Greeting Cards?

Paper Thickness

Gloss paper has a shiny and lustrous smooth coated gloss finish. Excellent for making full color printing appear more vibrant. Matte paper is a dull coated sheet that exhibits low gloss finish. Paper has minimal glare, making it easier to read text. Uncoated paper is easy to write on and should be used in projects such as a workbook or coloring book.

Very nice cards for our school's Christmas card fundraiser and by far the lowest production price we found. We were able to keep a lot more of the profits than if we gone with a different company. It was easy to order the multiple designs created by our students, and the cards ended up looking really nice. Not to mention, the phone was answered by a live person each time I called, and each person was able and willing to help with whatever my question was. I never encountered a machine. Thank you, PrintingCenterUSA for a job well done.

The service was fast and reasonably priced. The one critique I have is the color management workflow. The printed color matches what I see viewing the supplied proof in Adobe Acrobat Reader DC, but not what appears if it is viewed in Photoshop. On Windows 10, Photoshop is color managed, but Acrobat Reader DC is not. Customers should be advised to proof their colors in Acrobat Reader as things stand today. Preferably, the PCUSA workflow should match colors that appear in a color-managed application such as Photoshop if viewed using Windows. That's standard industry practice and has applied at all the other services I've used in the past. The attached photos show the color shift between the applications.

The greeting cards were perfect! They were thick and of very good quality. Printing and shipping were prompt. The envelopes were a little thin for my taste because you could see the colors of the card through the envelope. However, they did express they were 70# from the start. I’m very happy with my project!

Again, pretty much what I wrote last year: The product is EXCELLENT. Zero complaints or qualifications about that. I received rave reviews from everyone who bought and received them. Also, the service was quick, and the cards carefully packaged. On the other hand, my one complaint, but a BIG one: Like last year, the website/ordering experience has continued to be an exercise in pure dysfunction and frustration, like hitting my head against a wall. None of my feedback from last year was taken into account, and I ran into exactly the same problems this year. Like last year, I had to get on the phone and email multiple times with agents to try to sort things out. (The agents were nice, but of limited help.) Specific examples: Like last year, when I tried to enter a current promo code ($30 off orders of over $100) for my ENTIRE order (which was comprised of two different kinds of cards), there was no place to enter the code at the end to apply it to the entire order. There were only boxes to enter it earlier, next to each listing of each of the individual card types; but since neither individual card order came to over $100, the website wouldn't accept the code there. After at least 20 minutes on the phone, with the agent trying to find a way around that, he finally told me -- just like last year -- to just mention the promo code in a note and hope it got noticed and applied later. Also: Last year I was given two discount codes, each for $25 off -- one for my feedback; one for a mix-up on one order quantity. I was grateful for those. They had no expiration dates, so I was looking forward to using those discount codes this year. BUT ... On the website there was no place to enter those codes. They weren't accepted in the boxes by the card listings. On the phone the agent told me to go to "gift cards" under my account. There was nothing listed there. He manually entered a $25 "gift card" for me, which I was grateful for ... BUT ... Why wasn't I able to enter the two discount codes I was given last year? I didn't ask for those codes. I was given them by the company, but then given no place to use them. I provided both codes multiple times this year -- in my note with the order, and then in two different emails -- asking they both be applied to this order. I received NO acknowledgment of that. I was only ever told "the $25 gift card was applied" (i.e. the one the agent had entered after I could find no place on the website to enter the codes I was given). I never did get the other $25 applied to my order. I never received any response whatsoever to my bringing the whole issue up of not being able to use last year's codes. (Frankly, I got the feeling the agent emailing me back didn't actually read my emails carefully because, regarding the "$30 off orders over $100" promo, she just said, "The place to enter the promo code is by the individual cards." I had to reply: "I know that. I've already explained that it won't accept it there because neither individual order came to over $100.") So, summary: Excellent product and service; terrible website/ordering experience.

The printed greetings cards were top-notch ... as good as, no, better, than you can buy at a store. Decent price, too. The website could be a little more intuitive. This was my second time ordering, and both times, I had to call their customer service to explain how to place the order. That's the only thing stopping me from giving them a fifth star. I'll come back.

I took a chance on this new (to me) printing company after having various issues with other ones, and I'm so glad I did! The product quality and their customer service exceeded my expectations. The cards are printed on a very nice heavyweight stock that has a matte sheen and are scored like a store bought card would. The printing color shows much detail and variation (unlike other printers I've dealt with!). But what impressed me most of all in my experience was their customer service. They are in the US and you can talk directly to someone in graphics or billing etc. I had an issue with my file type and Eric called me and told me what I needed to do, he then corresponded with me over email too. I was worried about the color coming out right bc of my past experience with printers so they overnighted a proof to me to get my approval! Amazing!!! And then they made sure my large order of cards were printed, shipped and delivered in time for my event days later. I highly recommend this team and their services!!!

Product: My cards turned out great! They are high quality and look professional. I also love how easy it was to order many different designs of the same thing. *The envelopes are a bit see through, but I found a different use for those. Customer service: I called them three times in one day because I had never ordered anything like this before, and they were very helpful all three times (and I got to talk to someone right away — never on hold!). That is priceless, especially with a larger company.

The products are GREAT. I'm completely satisfied and was happy with the easy-to-use and flexible design and layout program provided on the website. I'm also happy with the help I received when I called several times. The ONLY negative I experienced is related to when I was trying to pay at the end, and found the checking-out process difficult on the website. First, there was a glitch and a number of my cards were listed as my requesting "saddle-stitching," which was just ridiculous, and I wasn't able to change it. An operator had to help me figure out how to get around that by leaving comments within each card order to make it clear I did NOT want that. Later the problem seemed to be fixed and on my order the format was listed correctly. Last, the checking-out process wouldn't let me enter a promotional code at the end of adding eight or nine different kinds of cards to my shopping cart. There was no place to do it. Again, an operator had to help me figure it out, and told me to ask them to apply the promotional code to the order within one of my comments for one of my cards. Because I had to do it that way, to this day I've seen no confirmation whether that happened or not. Again, not a huge problem, and I love the products I ordered ... but a slight negative all the same.

I just placed my 3rd order with PrintingCenterUSA. I am really happy with the quality of the cards and the helpfulness of their Customer Service team. My only suggestion for improvement would be the upload tool - its painfully slow after about the 5th file (I had 24 files). There was a lot of nail-biting when it froze up a number of times. It eventually worked so all is well, but its quite slow after a few files.

Very happy with the sample pack to final results. Paper names did not match so should be adjusted. The interface is easy to use although I wish I did not have to go all the way back to the beginning screen each time since I did a number of orders of the same card size and thickness and I could find no way to add additional to my cart without going all the way back to the beginning screen. Finally, I wish I had received a shipping notice. The last time I checked the status simply still said “approved”. It never switched to say In Print or In Production or Shipped to let me know they were en route. They just appeared. There was also no packing slip with the order. I was very happy with the items though and am simply giving feedback as to how communication could be improved.

My Cards turned out EXCELLENT, but they would not have if it wasn't for the excellent service at Print Center and especially Mary. I first sent in the wrong size file for the greeting card and half of it would have printed on the back side. She emailed me and asked if that is what I intended. Then she proceeded to work with me through 3 more wrong files I sent. The patience and quality control is a rare find. I am so thankful and happy to now have beautiful cards printed in the USA and for a very good price.
