FOIL STAMPING | NYC
Foil stamping is a method of printing with opaque and textural qualities that make an absolutely dazzling metallic print. A foil stamp is an opaque laminate that is slightly indented into the paper. This makes the technique an ideal solution for metallic printing onto black and colored papers. Unlike Pantone ink printing, white lettering on black stock is not only possible with foil stamping, but dimensional as well.
The laminate properties of hot foiling allow for shiny metallic gold or light-catching subtle gloss printing on color paper stock, something that matte light-absorbing ink cannot do. Use a foil stamp to add memorable shine and reflective dimension to custom business cards, and add a matching foil finish to the edge (also called edge gilding) for truly regal results. Holographic foil stamping is a real eye-catcher, gold + silver base foils can carry rainbow colors and prismatic 3D effects in many configurations.
Stamp with black foil on black paper stock or choose a clear gloss foil on white paper stock for a minimal and contemporary tone-on-tone look. Invites, promotional materials, holiday cards—the sky’s the limit on the kinds of print materials that are perfect for foil stamping.
FOIL STAMPING PRICING + PRINT PRODUCTION NOTES
Pricing for foil stamping is based on quantity, paper type and the number of processes and machines that will be used in creating your order. More elaborate and custom print specs cost considerably more than standard orders, so it’s important to get your quote before proceeding. Production time varies with order complexity and our seasonal workload but our elastic schedule allows for very fast rush prints when required, though rush charges apply. Turnaround time is calculated from the date of PDF proof approval. If your foil stamping project has a hard due-date please let us know when making your request. Email us with your design file or specs to receive a custom quote for your printing project. All projects must have a custom quote number to proceed.
Some foil stamping specs are available for rush printing service. To inquire about a rush job, please email artwork, print specifications and desired completion date ASAP to firstname.lastname@example.org. If we’re able to accommodate your schedule we will reply with pricing and additional costs for the rush. Rush foil stamping is one of our specialties but please be aware that every moment counts in a rush print schedule. Some jobs will require additional shifts and weekend work to finish on time so the price can be significantly higher than jobs on a regular schedule.
