Experienced designers will understand that every print substrate has it’s own set of personality traits and beer mat board is no different. Beer mat board is engineered to be super-absorbent and these unique characteristics make it different to printing on something like cardboard or paper. The substrate is as keen to mop up our inks as it is to collect the drips from a glass. These things need to be taken into consideration when designing a beer mat. For example, although we will have a good crack at it, getting a perfect pantone colour is just not going to happen!
