The Anonymities and Usage of Materials:

Materials, materials, and more materials. With a lot to choose form, which option would you go with and what are those things that Wikipedia won’t tell you? Let’s get our creative juices flowing and explain the detailed process of materials usage.

·        Card Stock:

Also termed as Cover Stock and Pasteboard oftenly, Card Stock material ranges from 14pt (for cosmetics and food products) and 12pt for light weight packaging.
