Foil stamping is a very interesting process. Besides further enhancing the presence and power of a business card, foil stamping adds a new material into the mix and helps to create a business card that is even more unique.
Recognizing how foil appears as a contrasting material will help you utilize this difference to strengthen your silk business card design. The dynamic of how light reflects on foil, vs. our silk lamination is something that simply cannot be reproduced on a screen. This contrast in materials creates a point of interest for the eye; because of this foil stamping often works best with simple designs.
(Oftentimes a simple approach with foil is best and creates the greatest impact)

Ensuring that you have a luxurious looking insert vs a cheap flimsy and poorly printed insert can make a large difference as well.

While we print luxury business cards in a variety of unique colors for our customers, one of the most common colors chosen is a solid deep black. There is a good reason for this - black ink contrasts with foil effects very nicely and it works great with the technique of applying “blind” spot uv. Blind spot uv is gloss elements placed in a certain area of the business card where there is no matching ink design underneath (commonly in a pattern over the rest of the ink), to create an even darker gloss contrast. In addition to that, black is a color that is bold and powerful.Beautiful Beasties, a black suede business card with spot uv and rounded corners.
