inc. VAT

Choose between double or single-sided printing and either Soft Touch or Matt Lamination. 

For a velvety feel, choose our Soft Touch lamination on both sides when placing your order. Feeling smooth between your fingertips, both Gold and Silver foils really shine on this laminate, which offers a striking contrast to the metallic tone. This shiny finish is achieved by applying foil on top of the laminate. 

Please note Gold or Silver 3D foiling can only be added to the front.

Please check out our other options for business card printing.

All of our prices are based on you supplying your own artwork, if you require us to create the artwork or if you would like to discuss supplying your own artwork please call us on 023 9271 8111 or email: hello@headlineprinters.com

Lamination Types

  • Matt - For a sophisticated finish, try our Matt Laminated cards. These cards are built to withstand the everyday wear-and-tear of life on the road. Its smooth finish brings out the lighter colours in the graphic, and allows for a softer image.


  • Soft Touch - Some things have to be felt to be believed. Our Soft Touch cards have an astonishingly velvet finish. This card exudes class and sophistication, and is a must have for premium businesses.

Technical Specifications for Foil Business Card Printing

Our 3D foil is applied by layering a liquid gloss directly on top of the lamination.

For Foil business cards, please supply your artwork as a 4-page PDF. Page 1 is the front of the artwork, page 2 is the back of the artwork, page 3 is the Foil artwork for the front and page 4 is blank. The Foil artwork should contain solid black shapes in the exact position where the Foil is required.

Please ensure Foil artwork is supplied as a vector and is 100% black only and does not contain any cyan, magenta or yellow.

Please note: Foil application has registration tolerances of approximately ±0.5 mm. It is not therefore recommended that small text (10pt minimum) or thin lines (1pt minimum) are foiled as perfect register cannot be guaranteed.
If you are printing a one-sided document, then a 2-page PDF is required where page 1 is the design and page 2 is the Foil artwork. If you are printing a double-sided document, with foil, please still submit a 4-page PDF - Page 4 being a blank page.
