Ivory card stock?

I might have a business card job coming in which would require printing on an ivory stock. Is this something that would require a special order from one of the paper suppliers or is ivory card something printers keep in stock in case someone wants a fancy cream business card?

Be careful - Ivory Board is the traditional name in the printing trade for the best quality stiff white uncoated card. Sometimes called Bristol Board.

Ivory Board is given an extra polish, called super-calendering, at the end of the manufacturing process. It also has more of a "spring" to it - the opposite to floppiness.

For example 'Royal Kent Ivory' is a crisp, white board. You need to ask for cream or ivory coloured board. Conqueror or Connoisseur do one or GF Smith but they will be more expensive - talk to the printer!

The spec of this is changing... They've seen duplex & triplex cards so now want to look at a cream/ivory coloured card, triplexed with a deep regal purple. :icon_eek: This is either going to look amazing or awful!
