Foil Type Options
We offer the following types of foil:
Metallic: This is the shiniest and most popular type of foil. It is most commonly utilised in Silver and Gold but is available in most other traditional colours by request.
Pigment: This is a more subtle foil and looks more similar to ink. Pigment foils are available in all modern colours with either a Gloss or Matte finish.
Pastel: Our pastel range consists of lighter-coloured, uncoated foils. These provide the best results when utilised on uncoated card stocks. For pastel colours not available in foil, we can also achieve pastels utilising a Screen Print method instead.
Pearl: Pearl foils add a touch of sparkle and shine to design, much like our Pearl Business Card range.
Special note about Pearl Foils:
Pearl Foils are shiny, slightly translucent and have a shimmery pearl effect when utilised on white paper stocks.
Pearl foils may still be utilised on coloured stocks, but this is less recommended, as the shimmer effect will be dimmed and the colour of the paper might be visible through the foil. This can produce undesired results on the final product.
Finest Detail for Foil Artwork
The finest detail suggested for foil stamping is 1pt line thickness. If you are utilising white foil, the minimum is 2pt.
Lines as thin as 0.5pt may be utilised in some cases; however, you will need to accept the risk of unwanted output. Fine details under 1pt may cause the sides of the foiled area to look jagged, or have small breaks.
How can I see all the colors of foil that you offer?
