Experiment with different card colours for eye-catching duotone edges.
Utilise white ink + full colour with white underneath on all card colours.
Combine white ink with foil stamping for a really eye catching card! Just remember to allow for around 1-2mm misregistration between ink printing and foil stamping, as they are separate processes.
Choose Marble White or Lace White Senses stock to be flood printed in a solid colour. Senses is digitally printed, so choosing white stock and printing in a solid colour can result in banding and streaking. Instead, be creativity inventive with the vibrant colours available in the range!

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.
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 and 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, it's common to lose around 1mm from each edge during the sanding and gilding process.
