What will the finish on my boxes look like?

The printed finish on your boxes will largely depend on which Material and Print Finish option you've selected when ordering your boxes. Ink density also plays a small part in how the finish looks and feels -- deep and dark colors produce a high-level of reflectivity on printed areas, while pastels and lighter colors result in a more subtle shimmer or nearly-matte effect. Here's a list of our current options and a description of what to expect with each:

Classic White & Natural Kraft

Our Classic White & Natural Kraft material options will have a paper-like matte finish on any unprinted or blank areas. Printed areas (wherever ink is applied) will appear slightly reflective due to the hardened, scratch-resistant surface of the cured ink -- we call this a satin finish.

Dreamcoat

Our premium Dreamcoat material option has a clay-coated surface for a soft-touch feel on unprinted areas. We currently have two Print Finish options on our Dreamcoat material: Semi Gloss and HDPrint Gloss

The Semi-Gloss option uses the same printing technology that results in the satin finish on our White and Kraft material options, but the clay-coating makes the surface of Dreamcoat less porous, resulting in a semi-gloss finish and colors that look more saturated and vibrant.

The HDPrint Gloss option uses new printing technology to produce crisp, high definition print quality and a glossy shine on ink-dense areas.
