Our Gmund Action Business Cards are quoted and manually processed based on your chosen specs. Please see the 'Paper Colours & Info' tab below to see the available colours in the range. Options available for finishing include white ink printing, full colour with white ink underneath, foil stamping, duplexing (gluing two card colours together), embossing and edge gilding. We can also mix and match stocks providing they are the same weights. This allows us to duplex (bond together) as an example, gmund action with colorplan which allows for a lot of creative play.

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 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.
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.
