Standard inks are available in a variety of colors. Flat ink dries flush (flat) on the paper/stock it is printed on. Raised ink dries raised (elevated) above the surface of the paper/stock it is printed on. Raised ink is textured, durable and has an engraved, shiny look. Laser/copier compatible inks are available for both flat and raised inks.
Not all standard ink colors are available on some products and additional colors may be available on others.
In addition to the Standard Ink Colors above, a wide spectrum of colors found in the Pantone(R) Matching System are available. These are the colors currently supported: the Pantone(R)Basic Colors, the 3 digit Pantones from the Pantone(R) Color Formula Guide (Pantone 100 - 732) and the Pantone(R) Metallics 871 - 877. NOTE: Pantone(R) inks printed on stocks other than white will not match the Pantone(R) Color Formula Guide. For best results, select a white stock when you need an exact color match for a Pantone(R) ink. Colored papers and stocks will affect the final ink color.
Other ink colors including Focoltone, RGB, Process Color, SpectraMaster(R), Trumatch, HKS(R) and certain Pantone(R) colors including Pastels, Hexacrome, Fluorescents, 2X impression and some Metallics (excluding those mentioned above) are not available.

Production Tolerances, Variations and Limitations
The production information provided below is designed to ensure a competitive price while maintaining acceptable quality standards. Please be aware of the tolerances, variations and limitations which may occur on your order or reorder.
• Size: A maximum variance of ± 1/32" may occur on the size of any product.
• Squareness: Business Cards, Envelopes and Labels may be ± 1/32" out of square. Letterhead and Folders may be ± 1/16" out of square.
• Margins: Business Card, Envelope, Letterhead, Label and Folder margins may vary ± 1/16".
• Quantities: Quantities delivered may be ± 10% of the actual quantity ordered.
•Paper Color and Stock Variance: There may exist slight color differences in different batches of colored paper and stock. This is due to manufacturer inconsistencies which occur from dye batch to batch during manufacturing. Border X Press(TM) has no control over this and will not refund / return any order on these grounds. Different types of stocks with different physical and chemical properties are used to manufacture different products and color may vary slightly between each product (example - white cover for business cards, white bond for letterhead and white matte litho for labels may all differ slightly in color even though they are all 'white'.)
• Color Variations between Flat, Raised and Laser Proof Raised Inks: Avariation in color between flat, raised and laser proof inks of the SAME color do occur. These different inks are chemically different and exact color matches between them are not possible. The substrate (paper) which ink is printed on will also affect the look of a color. This is due to the material itself altering the physical appearance of any given ink color and the way we, as humans, interpret combinations of different colors. For best results always select a stock color lighter than the ink color you choose.
• Color Variations between Standard Inks printed at different times: Avariation in color between standard inks printed at different times may occur. Standard ink color may vary in shade from print run to print run. Variations exist due to raw material availability and changes that occur over time due to pigment fading and paper aging. In addition, standard ink colors may come from different suppliers and thus are approximate colors. The color of the material which ink is printed on will also affect the shade of a color (example - process blue ink printed on white stock would not look exactly the same color when printed on a tan or gray stock.
• Recycled Paper: Recycled paper meets E.P.A. standards. As with all recycled products, paper and color imperfections do occur and should be expected.
• Glossy/Coated Paper and Flat Ink Printing: Flat ink is not available on gloss business cards.
• Two-Sided Printing, including one side with Stamping: Registration between inks/foil on two different sides is not available. Printing may be up to ± 1/8" out of alignment.
• Registration between Raised Ink and Flat Ink on the Same side: Registration on designs/logos that contain raised ink and flat ink is not available. Registration between the two may be up to ± 1/16" out of alignment.
• Raised (or Flat) Ink and Foil Concentric Designs (including double borders, compound circles, frames with multiple outlines, decorative contours): Registration of concentric designs that require ink and foil is not available. Registration between the two may be up to ± 1/16" out of alignment.
• Borders (including frames, borders that bleed, floodcoats with white/blank borders): Registration of borders, double borders, compound circles and/or compound designs is not available. Registeration of a border or frame to any business card, announcement or label edge is not available. Also, see Squareness (above) - ie, borders may be out of square and not appear centered on the cut and finished product. To reduce the chance of this occuring, use a 1/4" or 3/8" margin or greater, if possible. Borders are not available on letterhead, envelopes and folders.
• Font: Keep fonts larger than 5 points; reversed text larger than 9 points. The clarity of text smaller than 5 points is not guaranteed. The appearance of such small text WILL vary from order to order (print run to print run). When using foil, text smaller than 8 points, script text and thin text are NOT recommended and may not stamp clearly. Business cards stamped onto gloss or marble gloss stocks may use foil text as small as 7 points. Text smaller than 11 points will not look clear when screened.
• Screens: Screens are not available for foil stamping - only ink screens are available. Ink screens must be between 15% and 80%. Background screens for stationery are set to 20%. Screening text smaller than 9 points is not recommended.
• Lines: Fine Lines of .003" or less do not reproduce well.
• Customer Artwork: The following types of customer artwork will not reproduce well: 1) Artwork that is pixelated or of a low resolution. 2) Low resolution photos and files. 3) Artwork containing thin reverses, small reversed text under 8 points or screened text under 11 points. 4) Artwork with double borders or concentric designs. 5) Artwork that does not meet the product guidelines.
• Business Cards, Window Envelopes, Labels on Rolls, Folders and Folder Envelopes: Are NOT compatible with laser printers and copiers. NEVER run these items through any machine which generates heat.
• Foil Stamped and Flat Ink Envelopes and Folders: Flaps and seams can cause a slight line or mark on any foil image or flat ink image that is stamped/printed across these areas (even on the front side of the envelope).
• Rush Orders: Although production time is reduced, production tolerances may be affected. "Rushing" jobs with registration, fine detail, complicated artwork, Pantone(R) colors, etc. is not recommended.
