The Difference Between UV Coated, Matte Finish, and Uncoated Paper Stocks

scre


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.

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.

Vinyl Banner Design Checklist

roll-up-banner-slide

When it comes to traditional marketing, Discount Vinyl Banners are one of the most versatile and cost-effective marketing tools. They’re durable, transportable and make a striking visual impact.

Don’t use a banner’s low-tech style as an excuse to be casual about design. You should put as much thought and planning into banners as you do any other element of your marketing program.

Use this checklist to tick off all the necessary boxes for a great vinyl banner design that will reinforce your brand and drive customers to your product or service.

What is the purpose or goal of the banner?

Be clear on what you want to accomplish with the banner. Are you promoting your company and brand, generating leads or publicizing an event? The answer to this question establishes the framework for the overall design.

Where will the banner be displayed?

Banners have the advantage of being suitable for both indoor and outdoor use. The display location will dictate many of the design elements. Outside banners should be larger with a big enough font to be legible from a distance. You can also get away with bolder color choices, where indoor banners should incorporate lighter colors so they don’t distract from the message.

Have you edited the content?

With a large canvas like a vinyl banner, it can be tempting to fill it up with extraneous information. A banner can appear cluttered, so keep the focus on the primary message, and make use of white space for easier readability.

What material and print style will you use?

Before you decide to economize, think about the purpose. Banners need to hold up under more wear and tear than other types of marketing materials. A sturdy banner with quality printing that doesn’t fade is more cost-efficient than multiple inexpensive ones.

Do you have a call to action?

When you want to encourage a specific action, you can’t simply put your company name and logo in front of people. Include a strong call to action with a phone number, URL or even a request to visit your store. Be sure it’s appropriate to the banner’s location. People who are driving by will have less time to view it than banners posted in-store or in high foot-traffic areas.

How will you measure effectiveness?

Yes, you can track responses to vinyl banner marketing just as you do with postcards, flyers and other printed materials. Use special phone numbers or URLs that correspond with each banner you place. This way you can determine which locations or styles of banners are generating the most response.

Do you have the necessary hardware?

If your banner is going to be hung outside or from a wall or ceiling, grommets are the best method. Banner Stands are useful for smaller banners or ones displayed at trade show booths or other events.

The versatility of vinyl banners makes them a great tool to include in your company’s marketing plan. Consult your Printer, Accept Print, today for other suggestions to create a truly show-stopping banner.
