Cardstock Paper

What Is A Cardstock Paper?

Cardstock paper also called cover stock or pasteboard is a paper stock that is thicker and more durable than normal writing or printing paper, but thinner and more flexible than other forms of paperboard. This weight category is typically used for quilling typography projects and outlining in mosaics. It varies from 60-pound bristol weight up to 110-pound cover stock or higher.


When working with card stock, remember that the heavier the weight, the less quilling-friendly the paper will be. You can still coil and roll up bristol weight card stock paper with a quilling tool, but cover stock is too thick to fit into a tool and would crack when rolled. Still, the heavier weights are an excellent choice for straight and gently curved lines. When cardstock is labeled as cover stock it often has a coated finish on one side or both sides to produce a glossy look and smooth texture, especially in use for the printing of business cards and book covers

TEXTURE: The texture is usually smooth, but can be textured, metallic, or glossy.

Types Of Cardstock Paper:

Firm card stock paper, that is thicker and feels more substantial, and lends visual weight to your business card. It is a firm and heavy-weight paper and shows importance and seriousness in your business card. It goes well with heavy ink coverage used for bold typefaces and images in good quality. It creates visual satisfaction. When you touch a thick card, it gives a valuable and lasting image for your business.

Flimsy card stock paper, you need to know that is a thin and lighter weight paper. Sometimes it should mean how little you care about your customers. It is cheaper. Ink quality appears poor and soaks into the flimsy card stock. Often this kind of paper allows getting printing from home. The overall appearance is cheap-looking, and the feel of the business card is disappointing. Presenting your contact with a cheap, flimsy business card creates a poor image for your business.

Choosing The Weight:

The weight of the paper (i.e. the thickness) has a huge impact not only on how the finished project looks but also on how easy it is to make. Commercial strips usually come in writing weight, text weight, or card stock. Play around with all those options, so you can feel comfortable when it’s time to make a paper selection on your own.

  • Business cards
