Gmund Gold covers a range of 12 golden nuances, from subtle iridescence to the most dazzling gold in the paper industry. These include "Helium", with a hint of delicate gold; "Oro", a luminescent, warm golden tone like a sun-soaked Italian summer's evening; "Composition", an exciting mix of silver and gold; "Breeze", a subtle understatement made with fine gold dust; and "Lime Gold" with hints of green, which shines like golden neon. We offer white ink printing on Gmund Gold, Foil Stamping and Embossing. We can also duplex (bond sheets back to back) and mix and match stocks.

Colour variation is inherent in any printing process, you should expect a 10% colour shift between print runs.
PRINTING WHITE UNDERNEATH COLOUR
Printing white underneath CMYK inks can result in a colour shift, depending on the density of the white and how dark the card stock is. For this reason, we offer a courtesy, free of charge test print if you select full colour or full colour + white for printing. We will run a test print of your artwork and post it out to your for approval prior to running your job. This is an optional service for those concerned about colour reproduction when using CMYK+White printing.
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.
