Stages of Business Card Printing - Part 2

3 - Foil Printing Business Card Designs

Foil printing is another form of printing that gives the business card a very fine and nice shinny texture. To make the card look impressive and elegant, a colored foil is pressed into the card paper with a heated die. This printing technique is usually used to improve logos and typography.

Foil printing/stamping is a versatile way to add a high-end, personalized look to your business card. Foil stamp a business card with effects like sleek metallics, ultra-glossy textures, shimmery pearl, or distinctive textured and high-tech effects to add a touch of sophistication or sass.

Cards with foil printing, also known as hot foil stamping or hot stamping, use heated dies to impress pigment or metallic foil onto paper. The foil is applied to the surface under high pressure by the stamping machine, leaving the die pattern on the paper. Foil text or illustrations, such as logos, are common on business cards with foil. With its distinctive and eye-catching impressiveness, your foil business card will stand out from the crowd, giving you an edge in the extremely competitive marketplace.

Foil Printing Options

  • A number of foil styles can be used on foiled stamped business cards:
  • Metallic Foil comes in a range of colors, including gold, silver, red, green, blue, and copper, and has a metal-like shine and shimmer.
  • Gloss Pigment Foil has a high gloss but non-metallic finish and comes in a variety of colors.
  • Matte Pigment Foil comes in deep solid colors with a dull, non-shiny finish.
  • Extraordinary Effects Leathers, marbles, pearls, and woodgrains are examples of foils that add fascinating textures and appearances.
  • A hologram is used on the surface of Holographic Foil. It gives off a dramatic "high-tech" vibe.

Creating Business Cards with Foil Printing

A business card with foil stamping will really stand out. To get the best results, make sure the foil stamping and the background of your card have a lot of contrast.

  • Since foil stamping is invisible, you can use a light colored foil over a dark background or the other way around.
  • Use a professional-looking font with at least 8pt style that's easy to read at a glance.
  • A large sheet of business cards is printed and then cut into individual cards.

Foil printing gives business cards an upscale look and extra punch, making it easier for people to recognize you and your company. Make use of them to support your company and to give the message that everything you do is of the highest standard.
