Reviews for 88lb. Polar Matte Greeting Cards

Great reproduction and weight
Arti Helgason
Verified Buyer
I'm not a photographer but i do muddle around in graphic design creating cards, gift tags and mostly bookmarks. The 88lb polar matte is the best paper I have found for bookmarks. It is a good weight with no problems getting through my printer. And the color is stunning. It is a joy to work with.

Fantastic post cards!

The 88-lb matte 4x6 is my go-to paper for postcards. The finish is outstanding, even for challenging photos with lights in nighttime/black background shots.

Great Card Stock Try 2

After coming back several days later, I realize that my description of my process was not very clear. I first use a Microsoft Publisher template to print the front and the back of the card. Once I have the printing done, then I use a ruler and knife to score the print side surface. I use 2 or 3 trips of the knife lightly along the ruler to thoroughly score the print surface along the fold line. I then use my hands to fold the card in two and run the bone tool along the edge to lay it down completely. That folded edge goes against the stop on the paper trimmer and I proceed to then cut off the excess paper on the other 3 sides to produce a perfectly sized and square card every time. Using this method, it does not care if the paper feeds perfectly squarely into the printer.

Great card stock

I have used this paper for many years to make the photo cards that I sell. I take a knife to score the paper on the printing side to make a perfect fold. I use a bone folding tool to complete the folding process. I get one 5x7 card per 8.5x11 sheet or two 4x5 note cards. My Epson Surecolor P400 will not feed the card stock perfectly so I can’t use Red Rivers precut card stock. I lay the cards out using a template in Microsoft Publisher. I finish the cards by trimming them using my Dhale paper trimmer. It is easy to make perfectly square cards this way. Love the 88 pound paper for this purpose. I really love the Dhale paper trimmer.

Good stuff!

The 88# polar matte papers are awesome! They are substantial in weight but not disagreeable with my printer because of the weight. It is an amazing substrate for my art prints. The paper is smooth, is high quality and makes the color of my art prints and greeting cards come to life. Red River has been a great company to order from. Timely deliveries and awesome customer service!

I was searching high and low for a paper that I could use for making postcards. Not being a name dropper , let's just say it took me a while to find the matte paper solution to my problem. 88lb. Polar Matte Post Cards not only satisfies me but the people who get them/ send them.

Quality Paper

I use this paper as a Fine Art Paper option in my Etsy shop. The paper is smooth, really thick, and feels like quality. It prints beautifully on my Canon PRO 300 and my customers love it!
