Hand-Printed Cards

?

Foil printed cards

Make an impact with foil printed business cards.

Project Name

Unlike the highly automated processes used in colour printing, our foil printed cards are manually stamped by hand from your design onto a range of plastic and pulp-based cardstocks, and guaranteed to get you noticed with a print that you just don't get with standard printing methods.

The foils we use are available in a range of colours, as well as a choice of finishes including matt, gloss, pearl, metallic, holographic and multi-coloured, making these great as business cards as well as being ideal for membership and loyalty cards too.

Artwork Requirements

In order to manufacture the printing plate, we require higher resolution artwork than colour print jobs. View our artwork requirements page for details.

Foil-Only Cards

For our foil-only cards, we use the iconic Colorplan stock from UK paper maker GF Smith.
Developed back in 1936, this select and versatile premium uncoated stock has a proven compatibility with traditional printing techniques such as foil blocking, and is still widely considered to be indispensable within the design industry. Available in a range of colours.

Credit Card Style

The thickest in our range, our foil printed plastic cards are individually stamped by hand and are the same size as your credit / debit cards. They're available in a variety of colours, and harder wearing than pulp based alternatives.
They're ideal for a number of uses including business, loyalty, discount and membership cards.
