Why use a full-color back?

Why use a full-color back? (Business Cards)

A blank canvas waiting for your advertisement.

For 2 cents more, ($20 per 1000, and in some cases it's FREE through My ART ideas), a full- color back imprint on your business card will attract more business.

Matte or Glossy finish?

Smooth Card Stock: If you want to write with a ballpoint pen, matte finish is the way to go. You can go glossy if you use a Sharpie marker or using a punch. If using a punch, be aware of what is on the front of the card so that you are not "punching holes" in your phone number or email. Gel pens do not write well on matte and not on glossy at all.

Linen Card Stock: this slightly textured paper stock does not have a matte or glossy finish option and any pen should work well including gel pens.
