Your paper options for greetings cards

It's the most important part!

We carry a number of high quality papers and cards in stock just for your greetings cards. Each of our cards are detailed below with a description of each of their characteristics and finished looks. 

Silk Card: Indulge in the luxurious feel of silk-coated paper, offering a smooth texture and subtle surface sheen. It provides outstanding contrast for ink-to-paper and delivers distinct and vivid printed colours.

Gloss Card: For a polished and eye-catching look, choose our gloss-coated paper. Its shiny surface and smooth finish make colors pop with sharpness, and ink dries swiftly, reducing the need for lamination.

Uncoated Card: Unleash your creativity on our uncoated paper, a superb choice for items that require handwritten messages. This absorbent paper ensures ease of writing, giving printed inks a softer, tactile finish.

Pro Knight: Introducing Pro Knight Digital, a specialised greeting card material that’s coated silk on the outside and on the inside it’s uncoated, making it a breeze to jot down your thoughts. Crafted from sturdy 300gsm card, Pro Knight Digital guarantees high-quality, long-lasting greeting cards without the need for lamination.

Folding Choices Explained:

  1. Half Fold: This option involves taking your landscape page (also known as the “Flat Size”) and folding it vertically. The end result is a greeting card that’s supplied already folded in half. This classic fold style is ideal for a clean and elegant presentation.

  2. Tent-fold: With the tent-fold choice, we take your portrait page, again starting from the “Flat Size,” and fold it horizontally. This creates an inverted ‘V’ shape, giving your greeting card a unique and eye-catching appearance. The product is supplied in its folded form, ready to impress your recipients.

At 123 Print, we prioritise a hassle-free ordering process to ensure your top-of-the-line greeting cards are delivered to any location within Ireland. Whether you’re sending greetings to your valued company clients or expressing gratitude with birthday thank you cards for your friends, you can count on us for a fast turnaround and speedy delivery service to serve all our customers throughout Ireland effectively. Your custom greeting cards will stand out with our high-quality printing and attention to detail.

What's the low down with lamination?

Add lamination to your greetings cards for that WOW touch!

Matt Lamination: Matt lamination is the choice for those who appreciate a soft and contemporary touch to their printed materials. This technique involves applying a thin, matte film to the surface of the paper. The result is a subdued, non-reflective finish that exudes sophistication. Matt lamination not only enhances the aesthetic appeal of your printed documents but also provides practical benefits, such as added durability and resistance to wear and tear. It is particularly well-suited for projects that require a modern and understated look. This type of lamination creates a subdued, tactile experience that is not only visually pleasing but also adds a layer of protection to your prints.

Gloss Lamination: For those who seek the pinnacle of sheen and brilliance in their printed greeting cards, gloss lamination is the answer. Unlike standard gloss card, gloss lamination offers a superior shine finish that radiates quality and sophistication. This process involves applying a glossy film to the paper’s surface, which, in turn, amplifies the vividness of colors and images. Gloss-laminated materials have a luxurious, eye-catching appearance that is certain to capture attention. This method is most effective when dealing with solid colors and images, as it significantly enhances their vibrancy, creating a visually stunning effect.

Advantages of Lamination: Lamination serves various purposes in the realm of printing. It not only elevates the visual appeal of your printed documents but also provides invaluable protection. Laminating your materials helps preserve their quality over time, guarding against damage, moisture, and stains. Solid colors and images can particularly benefit from lamination, as it intensifies their impact, making them appear more vibrant and captivating. Whether you’re producing marketing collateral, business cards, or presentation materials, lamination is a powerful tool to enhance their durability and aesthetic value.

Considerations for Uncoated Papers: It’s important to note that lamination is not recommended for uncoated papers. Uncoated papers are absorbent and possess a soft, tactile finish, which can be affected by lamination. Lamination may not adhere well to uncoated surfaces and can result in an undesirable texture and appearance. Therefore, we would recommend if you are selecting uncoated card for your greetings cards that you don’t specify them to be laminated. 

Greeting cards tips and ideas

to make your greeting cards as good as can be

Below we have compiled some great tips on how to create a brilliant greeting card

Purpose and Occasion: Begin by identifying the occasion for your greeting card. Whether it’s a birthday, anniversary, thank-you note, or a holiday greeting, understanding the reason behind the card is crucial for crafting a meaningful message.

Theme and Design: Choose a theme or design concept that complements the occasion. Consider elements like illustrations, artwork, photography, typography, and colors. Ensure that the design resonates with the recipient and suits the mood of the event.

Thoughtful Message: Craft a heartfelt and personal message tailored to the recipient. Depending on your relationship and the occasion, you can add humor, wit, or include inspirational quotes that enhance the message’s depth.

Card Dimensions: Decide on the size and shape of your card. While common sizes include 5×7 inches or square, feel free to get creative with custom shapes that reflect the uniqueness of the occasion.

Quality Materials: Use high-quality materials, such as cardstock or specialty paper, for the card’s base. Choose envelopes that complement the card’s style and offer protection. Consider adding embellishments like ribbons or stickers if they align with the occasion.

Colour Choices: Be mindful of your color palette. Ensure that the chosen colors match the theme and evoke the appropriate emotions. Strive for a well-balanced combination that doesn’t overwhelm or distract.

Layout and Composition: Pay attention to the layout and composition of your card. Place the most important elements, such as the message or image, prominently. Use white space to enhance readability and the card’s overall aesthetic.

Proofreading and Editing: Review your message for spelling and grammatical errors. An error-free card demonstrates your attention to detail and thoughtfulness.

Personal Touch: Consider adding a personal touch to the card, such as a handwritten note or signature. Customize the card with inside jokes, cherished memories, or personal references that resonate with the recipient.

Envelope and Delivery: Address the envelope neatly, including the recipient’s name and address. Verify that you have the correct postage and decide whether to mail the card or hand-deliver it, depending on your preference and the significance of the occasion.

Sharing with Love: Present the card with a warm smile and genuine affection, conveying your feelings and best wishes to the recipient.

Creating a great greeting card is an artistic and heartfelt endeavor. It allows you to express your creativity and emotions while celebrating special moments or conveying your sentiments to someone you care about. The effort and thought put into the card are often deeply appreciated and cherished by the recipient.
