Foil stamping/blocking is the application of metallic or special effect foils to paper or card stock using pressure and a heated metal die/plate. It's one of our specialties, and by far, our most popular print finishing technique due to it's ability to make any print immediately look distinctively upmarket.

Metallic and special effect foils are applied using a combination of heat and pressure and a metal etched die, leaving a slight indentation (also called a deboss) in the surface of the card stock. These foil blocking effects elevate print to another level, increasing the value of the brand by creating a luxury, high-end impression.

We carry out foil stamping and hand-finishing on site at our premises in Bude, Cornwall, England and ship orders out all over the world. Such facility means deliverance of meticulous and high quality hot foil stamping for business cards, stationery, invitations and more. Furthermore, we acquire diverse stocks of papers and boards from suppliers including GF Smith, James Cropper and Fedrigoni that are superlative for corporate and personal stationery. You can also select from our gorgeous in-house palette of metallic and satin stock foil colours along with the ever popular holographic 'rainbow' silver. Special effect foils such as, holographic pink, holographic gold, gloss/matt pigment foils, brushed foils and patterned foils are also available on request for custom projects.
