Looking for a versatile stock for business cards.

Hey Briar Press folks!

I’m doing a business card for a client, and they want one side to be printed at a regular print shop, and the other side letterpressed.

With that in mind, I’m looking for recommendations for a good paper stock that is suitable for both letterpress and cheaper printing as well.

I forgot to mention, a friend of mine recommended Reich Savoy 118# cover paper.

The Reich Savoy is very similar to Lettra, and looks great letterpressed, but can’t guess on offset/digital.
I think something in the Mohawk Loop line could work well. There are a number of finishes (“antique vellum” “smooth”, etc.) . and also a good range of thicker paper, like a 130# cover and a sturdy 160# cover.
Worth a look.
