What is the difference between a Matt and Gloss Card?

Simple answer is Matt is none shinny and gloss is shinny

There are advantages to both, really depending on your design and how you want your cards to look

Matt gives a bit texture to a card and can really make them look different. Matt is also very good to use on dark coloured cards as you will find that dark colours will show small scratches very quickly and with matt it gives the cards a bit more longevity with the look

Gloss with some vibrant colours can really stand out well (although the same card in a matt finish could give a more classy look)

We do charge extra for a matt finish and one of the reasons for that (its a bit long winded but bear with me) is that all cards are made with the same overlay on and to create the matt finish we use special matt plates in the laminators which then impress the finish into the plastic

Normally machines are set up to use our gloss plates so we have to change the plates over for a matt finish which takes time, also the matt plates need replacing every now and then and they are a lot more expensive than gloss plates

I do feel that in most circumstance matt finish does add more style to a card (Its not just me saying this)
