Use full colour designs and solid colour backgrounds and combine with foil stamping to benefit from upmarket metallic foil effects. Silk 450gsm card prints beautifully, so you'll benefit from sharp, crisp imagery and fantastic colour reproduction. These cards are fantastic for combining full colour printing with foil stamping.
Keep digitally printed design elements separate from foil stamped elements to allow for movement/misregistration during the two different processes.
Create designs that require close registration of digitally printed elements and foil stamping elements. Make sure you design with a little tolerance for mis-registration between print and foil stamping. Foil stamping is a separate print finishing process carried out after printing, and registration can vary by up to ±2 mm. This means you should expect the foil stamp element(s) to move around the page by up to ±2 mm. For more information, please see the 'Foil and Ink Registration' tab in our File Setup Guide.
The production times quoted on our website are based on typical production schedules and cannot be guaranteed. If you require a product urgently or by a specific date, please contact us before ordering and we will do our upmost to adjust our production schedules and meet your needs. Our ability to meet very tight delivery deadlines is subject to order specifications, quantities, machine requirements, third-party couriers and several other factors that may be beyond our control.
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.
Colour variation is inherent in any printing process, you should expect a 10% colour shift between print runs.
