Our Colorplan Special Offers 700gsm Business Cards range includes a choice of select colours we purchase in bulk, enabling us to offer them at an affordable cost, passing the savings on to you! Select from the stock colours: Cobalt, Dark Grey, Ebony Black, Imperial Blue, Natural, Pale Grey, Pristine White, Real Grey, Slate, Smoke, Stone or Vellum White. Your selected card colour is then foil blocked in a foil colour of your choice from our vast selection. Stocks for this range are pre-duplexed to 700gsm, which means we can't digitally print on them, they can only be foil stamped.

All foil stamping is carried out in-house at After Hours Creative. We apply foil effects using an etched metal die/plate and a combination of heat and pressure to press the foil in to the card stock. This foil stamping process creates a slight indentation in the card stock during the foil application. The amount of indentation is carried out at the discretion of the foil technician. Too much of an impression can cause the foil to bleed around the edges or create filling in between foil elements. Our priority is always achieving the highest quality foil print.
Debossing entails making a subtle indentation into the stock, with the absence of foil (blind debossing) or with foil. Any media produced with debossing is done at the technician's discretion, as too much of a deboss can cause the foil to bleed around the edges and result in a poor quality finish, so we find a balance between quality of print and the level of deboss.
FOIL EDGE GILDING
Foil edge gilding is the application of metallic and satin foil colours to the edges of business cards and invitations. It is synonymous with status and prestige and is a specialised service carried out in-house at our studio. The process involves carefully sanding down the edges of business cards and invitations, then applying foil using a heated roller. The entire process is carried out by hand, which is why edge gilded products have longer production times. Please note that, you will lose around 1mm on each edge of your business cards due to the sanding and gilding process.
