A Paper Love Story

At Makr we’re all about the small batch. We think it’s important that our small business owners and intimate wedding throwers have the option to choose low quantities without compromising on quality. To achieve this, we set our sights on two stocks, both from top quality mills in America.

Our card stock is uncoated which means that colors tend to be a little softer while letting the paper shine through. You’ll also love the feel of uncoated paper! By avoiding the artificial coating you’ll avoid the artificial feel. Uncoated paper is also better for the environment which always gets two thumbs up from us.

 

Your Makr paper options:

  • Standard Paper: A solid, affordable and smooth paper, our standard stock is a great base for everyday printing. Here’s the stats:
    • 130-pound solar white uncoated matte
    • Coming to us from the Neenah Paper Mill in Wisconsin
  • Double-Thick Paper: For a more luxurious card, choose our double-thick stock (literally two layers of paper bound together). It’s great for formal invitations or setting your business cards apart from the rest. The stats:
    • 240-pound bright white uncoated matte
    • Via Mohawk Fine Paper in upstate New York
  • Labels & Stickers: Digitally printed on a white matte litho label stock, labels are smooth to the touch, but FYI they are not waterproof.
  • Envelopes: Blank white with a square-flap. Envelopes are FREE and included for all 5 x 7 formats. We provide a quantity to match your card order, plus 2-5 extra – just in case.
