C2S is a paper that is treated with a coating on both sides, either gloss, matte, or UV. Neither of these coatings are suitable for writing on.

Recycled paper is our standard stock, at no extra cost to you. All scores and folds are included at no charge. Our two-sided cards are printed in full color on 14 point cover stock with your choice of matte coating, gloss coating, high-gloss U.V. coating, or C1S (coating on the outside and no coating inside for handwritten or inkjet printer messages). C1S is best for adding handwritten messages.

The print quality of the notecards we ordered was wonderful. The images were crisp and the colors were vivid & accurate. The stock was sturdy with a nice feel to the gloss on the outside.
