Why Use Foil Stamping

Foil Stamping

Foil stamping is a method of applying colored film foils to paper for an elegant look. Much like embossing, foil stamping uses a combination of heat and pressure to stick foil to a sheet. It works best for paper with a smooth even surface as opposed to textured stock. Foil stamping adds a shiny, glossy, metallic, or reflective look depending on the foil you choose.

Since foil stamping doesn’t use ink, the foil color is not impacted by the color of paper it is applied to. Foils in light and metallic colors can be easily used on darker colored papers. Darker paper makes for a more striking contrast with the foil. The more your print marketing stands out the greater impact it makes on your customers and prospects.

There are many colors to choose from such as:

  • Gold
  • Silver
  • Bronze
  • Copper
  • Rose gold
  • Blue
  • Green
  • Red
  • Holographic
  • Rainbow
  • White
  • Black
