Duplexing stock simply entails gluing two sheets together to create a thicker sheet. We stock the Vanguard colours in a weight of 250gsm, which can be duplexed to 500gsm, triplexed to 750gsm or quadplexed to 1000gsm. By duplexing a coloured card stock like Vanguard, which has coloured edges to match the surface colour, you can create really sharp duotone edges. By incorporating unique finishes like in white ink printing and foil stamping, your business cards will encapsulate a stylish and captivating statement. When duplexing Vanguard card stock, you don't need to use two different colours. While duotone edges are distinctive, sometimes you may want one colour card with matching edges. Achieve this with our Vanguard Duplex Business Cards, all you need to do is select the same colour for the front and back. A popular option with our clients is a Black Business Card with white ink or a Bordeaux card with gold foil stamping. You’ll have customisations galore, using Vanguard papers for business cards. Vanguard is also an ideal choice for invitations, swing tags and other products.


Hot stamping foils are opaque, which means you can use them on any card stock colour. This is great for coloured stocks such as Vanguard, because it gives you the freedom of color play with foil stamping and card colour combinations. Minimalist cards can be produced with combinations of blacks and whites, or make a bold impression with options like Lime Green Vanguard card with platinum foil stamping! All our foil stamping is carried our in-house by trained technicians with over 10+ years of experience. We have complete control over production of Foil Stamped Vanguard Duplex Business Cards, which permits us to meet tight deadlines when necessary and maintain our high standards of finishing.


As business owners’ devise ways to conjure memorable business cards, many gravitate to cards with a coloured core. Vanguard offers a lot more colour choices than conventional Multi-layer Coloured Core Business Cards. Many Coloured Core Business Cards have set core colours with around eight or so colour options. Conversely, our Triplex Vanguard Business Cards offer 32 core colour choices! Also, if you want a thicker seam of colour running through the centre of your business cards, we can quadplex stock by using two layers of your chosen core colour. This creates a 1000gsm business card with a 500gsm thick core! Our Triplex Vanguard Business Cards can be foil stamped, printed with white ink, printed with full colour designs with white underneath and you can even achieve free spot UV type effects by printing black ink on black card stock. The sheen of the black toner contrasts really well with the matt black finish of the Vanguard Black card stock.
