The Gold Standard, or Silver, or Copper, or....

We get a lot of customers who want gold or silver foiling on their cards. It gives them a real distinctive and classy look. Unfortunately, the standard process has always been pretty expensive. It involved the creation of a foiling 'die' which really upped the price, especially for smaller orders.

But now, you can get all of the effect for a much lower price with our new digital foiling. This process applies shiny, glossy, metallic inks on top of the lamination in the same way as 'spot varnish' is applied. And because there is no expensive setup involved, it's viable even for short runs.

These cards are printed on a thick 450gsm silk stock, paired with matt or soft touch lamination and finished with your choice of gold, silver, copper, red or green foil. The foil can be applied to one or both sides.

Turnaround Time

Standard: 5 working days

Express: 3 working days

Turnaround times are from supply of correct, print-ready artwork, or if we are doing the design, approval of proofs. Working days are Monday - Friday and exclude bank holidays.

Is this the same as block foiling/hot foiling?

Not quite. Block foiling involves the creation of a metal die which presses the foil onto the cards using heat, leaving the foiled elements slightly recessed/debossed. Our process applies the foil more like an ink, so the foil sits flat on the surface of the card. Since it is not necessary to create a die, it works out more economical, especially for smaller orders.

Can I have this type of foiling on a card without lamination?

Unfortunately not. The digital foil used is a liquid, and has to be applied onto a laminated surface. Without the lamination, it would absorb into the card and you'd lose the full metallic effect.

How do I choose which areas I want to foil?

The digital foiling can be applied to as much or as little of the card as you like. It works really well on decorative elements and icons, as well as larger text. It is applied separately to the full colour print, so there can be fractional mis-alignment (normally not more than 0.5mm), and it can spread very slightly, so we recommend you don't use it for very fine lines or text.

Foiling
