Here's what's included and excluded in a standard sample:
❌ Finishes (e.g. matte, glossy)
❌ Add-ons (e.g. foil stamping, embossing)
Note: standard samples are made with sampling machines, so these samples might be harder to fold and you may see some small creases/tears in the paper.
For each standard sample, you will receive:
✅ 1 dieline* of the standard sample
✅ 1 standard sample delivered to your doorstep
*Note: dielines for inserts are only provided as part of our structural design service.
