What Weight of Paper is Best for Notecards?

Most Popular / Recommended Paper:

12pt C1S (Coated 1 Sheet) is .012" thick and has a shining coated gloss finish on the front with no coating on the back. The uncoated finish on the back of this stock is perfect for writing as the ink dries quickly so you don’t have to worry about smudging. This is our recommended choice for note cards!

Most Popular / Recommended Paper:

9pt Matte Cover is a .009" thick with a slight coating giving it a low gloss finish. It’s perfect for note card designs that depend upon high quality color reproduction.

10pt Gloss Cover is .0095" thick and has a shiny smooth coated gloss finish making it perfect for full color printing. Images on your note cards catch attention with deep and interesting colors.

12pt Gloss Cover is .012" thick and has polished coated gloss finish. It has similar attributes to 10pt Gloss Cover, but is slightly thicker giving it more durability.

I have used Printing Center USA for 5 years -each year getting 500 cards printed. I love the product and the price. But it has gotten more and more difficult to use your system and your website. I used to simply upload photos- now it is very hard to meet your specifications- especially without a computer program for artists.

The printing on all versions is clear and accurate.

Print Center USA was great to work with as far as formatting and submitting my work. Their website provided very helpful instructions and useful on-line formatting tools. The production turn-around was prompt and the order produced and shipped correctly. Unfortunately, their bookkeeping and customer communication is poor. They sent me an invoice showing the full balance due even though the amount had already been paid in full when the order was submitted. I sent an email to the accounting department and then called customer service, but still no response after more than 10 days.

I had been throwing around the idea of making notecards from some of my photos but did not know where to begin. Printing Center USA made it quite easy! I am extremely happy with the quality and turn around time. My second order has been submitted and there will be more to follow!

The post cards looked great after a lot of communication back and forth. Your website template is easy to download, however there were no further instructions on how to insert your picture after the download. I tried using photo shop and was wrong several times along with using Adobe Acrobat. Every time I tried to insert a picture your people declined it because it wasn't right. The template would insert all of your information along with mine. Better instructions would be very helpful. My website designer person even came and inserted the picture and again it was wrong. It took several attempts to get it right. When I finally was able to get it to work, I was sent an email with a comment about making sure my order was print ready next time. I thought I was sending it print ready several times and your people were not much help with the setup. I doubt I will use Printing USA again. Even though your prices are reasonable. I think I will just use Vista Print.

Ordered custom note cards from Print Center USA. We communicated with them several times via phone and email. They made every effort to ensure that the cards received were what we needed. We were very pleased with both the service and the cards. We will definitely use Print Center USA again.

The templates make accurate orders easier. I was confused by what two-sided meant. I thought the front and back of a card were two sides. An phone call and email were done to confirm my intentions. Everything looks great and shipped quickly. It would be nice to have some way to estimate approximate shipping costs before you get all the way to the end. I will be ordering again. I am happy with the process.
