Colours can be the same (e.g. 2 sheets of blueberry glued together, or 2 or 3 different colours). We are able to print digital white ink, black ink and even full colour with white beneath, which allows for full colour designs on any colour card stock.
We recommend creating your artwork for foil blocking as vector files using Adobe Illustrator. Layered Adobe Photoshops (psd) files with all fonts rasterised can also be supplied at 1200dpi (our templates are set at 1200dpi for you). If you're supplying jpeg or tiff files we require your artwork in solid black on a white background in order to manufacture the foil blocking dies/blocks, jpeg and tiff files also need to be 1200dpi. Once we have received your files we will send you a digital proof and confirm all job specs. Once you approve your proof, production will begin.

Let us know which card colour(s) you'd like when you upload your artwork. Orders are despatched in 7-9 business days from artwork approval. Please allow 10-15 days for production if you select edge gilding.
