“Kraft-look Embedded” 

Have you ever been scrolling through Bliss Paper Boutique’s products and seen a note indicating that the template comes with the kraft-look embedded in it? And then have you thought, “What does that mean?” Well, below explains exactly what it means (it’s not anything to scare you away from the product!), and what you need to do to achieve the same look shown in the gallery of product images.

What does embedded mean?

When the listing page says “kraft-look embedded” that means the background is embedded/included in the printable. It is not actually “white ink” that prints. The white text shown is actually just the white card stock showing through. Also, just a tip — white ink is not very common (even among professional print shops) and is usually very costly.

What should I print on to get this same look?

Your kraft-look embedded template should be printed on a white card stock to achieve the same look shown in the gallery images. We recommend using 100lb cover or 120lb cover card stock. The larger the number, the heavier the paper is. If you are undecided or are a visual person, I’d recommend stopping in at a FedEx Kinkos, Staples or Office Depot as they do have paper options you can see and feel.

Can I change the font color in the editable areas?

Yes. However, white or light colored text will not show up when printed over the kraft-look embedded background. If you’d like to change the text color in the indicated areas, only dark colored text is recommended.

What will the final result look like?

The color of the kraft-look embedded background will vary depending on your printer, quality of your printer, cleanliness of print heads, stock choice, etc. For printing and cutting, we do recommend FedEx Kinkos, Staples, Office Depot or a local print shop as they do a nice job for a very reasonable price.
