What Weight of Paper is Best for Postcards?

Brochure PaperThickness

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.

I put in a 6 x 9 postcard reorder and the second batch of postcards came with text so light it's hard to read, and completely different colors than the original postcard.

I wish half the companies I work with, were half as professional, helpful, courteous, and fast. I'll never get printing done anywhere else! There simply the best!

Love the postcards, color and quality is great. My only disappointment is that the black-backed cards I ordered are not exactly matte and the shiny coating on the black makes it almost impossible to write on with pen. Was hoping I could write thank you notes a little more easily. Otherwise a 5 star product!
