Linen Finish on Cards

Linen finish on cards is done by a press machine with steel plates that have a certain pattern. The paper goes through the machine and is pressed to get the same surface pattern. 

Linen finish on cards is used when you either want your cards to shuffle more easily or alternatively have an attractive looking surface.


However, Linen finish on any paper make the paper thinner, so, we recommend to first use at least a 350gsm card stock, and second to lower the press pressure of the linen finish so it doesn't damage your card. 

Linen finish is a process that is done independently of the other surface materials so it can be used on any surface. Whether you have lamination, oil varnish, or aqua based finish to your cards, the linen finish can be done. 


The price for linen finish is about 0.15USD per sheet of paper.
