Product Review for Gorgeous Printable Metallic Champagne Cardstock

There are times when I want to use a printable cardstock with a bit of shimmer and this printable Metallic Champagne Cardstock is the answer!

Perhaps your wedding invitation, party banner, party sign or printable tags may need a little sheen. After searching and trying out multiple papers, I found this Printable Metallic Champagne Cardstock on called Metallic Champagne cardstock. It is really more of a shimmer than metallic, but I LOVE it.

I have used it for a number of projects over the past three years, so now I feel confident to give it my personal stamp of approval! It should be called Ivory Shimmer cardstock, instead of Champagne Metallic cardstock, but that is my only major negative feedback. I have experimented with four of the subtle shades of ivory, gray and silver in the shimmer collection.

CARDSTOCK SPECIFICATIONS:

  • Size: 8 1/2 x 11 Cardstock 8 1/2 in x 11 in / 8.5” x 11” / 216mm x 280mm / Letter Size, 105lb cover
  • Color: Champagne Metallic shimmers under light and it looks ivory rather than champagne. 
  • Quantity: Pack of 50
  • Printable on off-set and digital printing presses as well as ink jet and laser home printers. Results will vary based on the printer used.  I tested this paper on an Epson 1430 Artisan printer (which is no longer available but the Epson Expression is the new printer model).

PRODUCT USES:

  • Cuts, scores and folds well when I used my Cricut to make the banner in my sample photo as well as when I cut the laser like wedding invitations in the photo below.  It cuts beautifully.
  • Works well for tags, invites, banners, cards, envelopes, folders, signs, electronic cutting, stamping, scrapbooks, etc.
  • Can write on the paper with a Sharpie and it will not smear.
  • Pay close attention when printing heavy dark patterns, as I did experience some bleed.  When I re-adjusted my paper settings, the results improved tremendously.
  • Since this is an ivory paper, colors will not be as vibrant, but the dark colors show off the shimmer.
  • I do not recommend this paper for printing photographs.
  • It is difficult to see the shimmer when you photograph the final product, but in “real life” the paper is gorgeous!
