Gloss 1 Side (C1S)

14pt:  14pt cover, gloss 1 side has a gloss coating on the front with a completely uncoated back. C1S is generally used for products you intend to run through another printer for labeling or customization. Greeting cards commonly use C1S stocks for ease of writing on the inside. Additionally, postcards are often printed on C1S stocks so the uncoated side can be easily addressed by hand or desktop printers.  Because the front is glossy and the back is not, keep in mind that the back side of your piece will not completely match the front side in regards to brightness and ink saturation.
