Please ensure that you/your designer follow the artwork guidelines set out in our File Setup Guide. We have also included blank templates below, to help you create your artwork.
IMPORTANT: Files supplied for foil stamping must be supplied in vector format. They can be sent to us as Adobe Illustrator files or as PDF files, but the artwork must have been created as vector art using vector editing tools (not JPEGs placed in Illustrator and saved as an .Ai or .EPS file). Only artwork originally created in a vector editing program, such as Adobe Illustrator, is truly vector art.

Utilise white ink + full colour with white underneath on card colours.
Combine white ink with foil stamping for sensational compliment slips! Just remember to allow for around 1-2mm misregistration between ink printing and foil stamping, as they are separate processes.
Choose white stock to be flood printed in a solid colour. Our Coloured Paper DL Compliment Slips are digitally printed, so choosing white stock and printing in a solid colour can result in banding and streaking. Instead, utilise the vibrant colours available in the range!
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 stock. This foil stamping process creates a slight indentation in the 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.
