Couldn't be more pleased with how my client's cards turned out! The foil stamping is crisp, clean and meticulous. The card stock is rich and the thickness really elevates the design. My client wanted a "luxury look" and these cards exceeded our expectations!

The gold foil cards are beautiful! They look so luxurious and are exactly what I was looking for. They have a soft suede-like touch that feels nicer than the average matte business card which is a bonus! I’m in love! Thank you!

Slight bleeding of color, as the front was white and back was black.

Pearl business cards are printed in full color on pearlized paper stock.

This paper is perfect for light-colored or pastel-colored designs.

The pearl stock creates a shimmery effect on your text and design elements.

We typically recommend this paper for kid-related products or events, feminine products, and to any business wanting to project “cuteness”.

This shimmer will not be as dramatic as foil stamping, or even spot gloss but rather makes a more subtle and elegant statement.

Please set up your files with the following specs:

  • Bleeds: all files must have a 1/8″ bleed on each side
  • Safe Area: keep all critical text and artwork inside the trim
  • Colors: supply your files in CMYK color mode if you are printing 4-color process
  • Colors: supply your files with correct Pantone (U or C) colors selected in file.
  • Resolution: 300 dpi
  • Fonts: fonts must be converted to curves/outlines
  • Transparencies: flatten all transparencies
  • File Types: Preferred: PDF, EPS | Also accepted: TIFF or JPEG
  • ICC Profile: Japan Coated 2001

A Guide to Letterpress Printing: What it is and why is it important?

Letterpress Printing Guide Source: Design Shack Letterpress printing is an artform that’s been around since 1450. Credit for its creation goes to a German goldsmith, Johannes Gutenberg. Also known as relief printing or typographic printing, letterpress is more than an artform; it’s a tradition. Different parts of the world have contributed to the methods, techniques and tools used in this process. From giant, car-sized print machines which ran on a simple principle of making a print impression on a flat surface using blocks of texts, letterpress has come a long way. Now, its relatively small descendants can be found sitting … Read more

What is the difference between hot foil stamping and cold foil?

Foil is a premium addition to your labels and marketing products. It draws the eye with its texture, metallic sheen, and depth. There are two different types of processes: hot foil and cold foil. Hot foil stamping involves having a die of the design foiled and mounted above the substrate. The die is heated and forced against the substrate, with a heat-activated adhesive running in between the two.
