Foil Stamp Luxury Business Cards


Are you looking for fast turnaround premium silver and gold foil stamp business cards? Our super high quality silver foil cards are dispatched within 5 – 7 working days ensuring that you receive your cards as quickly as possible.

Foil stamping uses heat and metallic foils to create a shiny metallic finish. During the foiling process, the foil is transferred to the business card by means of a heated metal die. When foil stamping is applied to chosen areas on your business card, the shiny metallic foil enhances specific sections resulting in a sophisticated and quality appearance. The smooth matt laminated card finish creates a beautiful contrast against the shiny foil surface making these cards extra special.

For best results and greatest foil clarity, avoid fine detail and small fonts (see artwork guidelines for more information).

Gold, silver, copper, rose gold, and matt gold or silver are popular choices for adding a touch of elegance and sophistication. Blue, navy blue, red, black, and magenta can create a bolder statement and add a pop of color to your cards. The choice of hot foil stamp colour will depend on the brand’s personality, message, and target audience. Whether you are looking for a classic or modern look, hot foil stamping can take your business cards to the next level.
