Foil stamped business cards are silk coated business cards that undergo an additional process where silver, gold or copper foil is imprinted on one or both sides of the business card. Adding foil stamping is very appealing and immediately stands out because of the way it reflects light. Adding silver, gold or copper foil tastefully can elevate the luxury appeal of your silk business card design.Gold foil business cards with a black background, silk coating and spot uv gloss on the back.
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)
Spot UV and spot gloss are common terms for the print finishing technique of applying a high gloss UV coating to a selective area on a printed piece.
A common use of spot UV is to draw attention to a certain area of the printed piece, such as placing spot UV over a logo so that only the logo area is glossy. We offer spot UV as an option for our luxury business card printing and postcard printing, but it is also commonly used on packaging, flyers, brochures and other printed materials.Silk with spot UV gloss over the logo.

There are many differences between your average printer and a luxury business card printer. Here we will go over the 4 most important differences in quality that you should look out for when ordering your next set of business cards.A few of the many luxury business cards that we have printed for our customers.
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.
