ILLUMINATE YOUR COMPANY IN THE BEST POSSIBLE LIGHT WITH A FOIL BUSINESS CARD
Foil stamping in the printing industry is widespread, it is an effect of stamping. In addition to its use in the manufacturing of business cards, foil stamping is also used for making various souvenirs. Using this technology in the manufacturing of business cards involves the production of a stamp. This method can use a wide range of materials for the role of the embossed surface (substrate): paper, cardboard, leather, plastic, etc. The embossed foil on your business card will stand out among others due to its individuality, originality and attractive appearance.
There are several varieties, unusual and attractive methods for creating foil business cards. One of which is hot foil stamping, this is where the special printing foil between the substrate and the printed stamp is pressed under pressure and high temperatures at the surface of the substrate. Colours of foil may vary: gold, silver, copper, green, red, blue, black, white and transparent. It is possible to stamp without the use of foil, this pressing effect is called embossing. With hot foiling on business cards you get a luxurious view and solidity to your business cards.

This includes conventional card, in addition to more innovative options, spanning wood, leather and a range of different plastics.
