We print the highest quality foil greeting cards now with extra sparkle! Available in a selection of sizes and foil colours, silk and uncoated papers. With soft-touch lamination, our spectacular foils will make your cards shine.
We love these foil greetings cards because they look so fun and yet so chic. If you want to produce a greeting card for a birthday, promotion or Christmas they will stand out. Make every occasion a special one with foil greeting card printing. Choose from either a 350gsm Uncoated or a luxuriously thick 350gsm silk paper with a soft touch lamination to the outside of the card. Your choice of foil colour is then applied on top of the lamination. The soft velvety feel of the lamination and the high sheen of the foil combine to create an incredibly tactile finish.
Gold, Silver, Copper, Red or Blue Foil and a choice of white or red envelopes.
Use for: Eye-catching Marketing materials, thank you cards, anniversary cards, birthday and Christmas cards.
Top tip: When designing, choose a minimal background design for the foil to really stand out.
Our foil greeting cards are delivered flat and pre-creased ready for you to fold. UK shipping is free, exceptions apply.
Artwork templates are available for download to assist with setting up your files. These include the panel widths required along with the correct orientations to ensure your artwork backs up correctly.
For foiled products, we require artwork to be supplied in the following order:
Page 1 is the outer cover of the greetings card
Page 2 is the inner spread of the greetings card
Page 3 is the Foil artwork for the front cover
Page 4 is blank.
Please note: Foil application has registration tolerances of approximately ±3 mm. It is not therefore recommended that small text (10pt minimum) or thin lines (2pt minimum) are foiled as a perfect register cannot be guaranteed. The foiling should not be represented on page 1. Slight misalignment of the foil could result in lines or 'shadows' of this foil representation being visible on your final product
