Premium Foil Business Cards

Foil adds a great depth and dimension to your card. We offer two variations of foil products including Inline Foil (Image Below)  and traditional Hot Foil Stamping, also called Stamped Foil.

Foil Stamping is the application of color or metallic foil to stock paper using a heated die. The die then presses the foil onto the surface under high pressure. This leaves the design of the die on the card stock. Select from a variety of foil colors to truly make a one-of-a-kind card.

There are advantages to printing foil stamped cards. By adding foil to your cards or other printed business materials, potential customers may place a higher value on your business and products.
