Metallic foil business cards are notable for their shiny, unique finish, which can be applied to both large and small portions of the design. The unique property of foil allows for some incredible looking designs not possible through other printing methods. Gold and silver foils are reflective and almost mirror-like, shimmer in all lighting conditions, and look especially great with black or white designs.

  • Step 1 : Ensure the file matches the product's required dimensions. Ensure that the artwork is created in CYMK 300 dpi with 1/16 inch bleeds on all sides
  • Step 2 : Separate artwork into two files: one is for foil lamination, for which the artwork's color should be set to 100% black. Another file should be in the CMYK color space for artwork that is not foil printed.
  • Step 3 : Export all files into PDF format with bleeds.
Note: Text size should be no smaller than 10 POINT and font should not be of BOLD type to allow foil to appear clearly and text to be readable (as per attached pic). Failing to do so will result into delays and/or creating product that is not as per expectation.
