Metallic Foil Business Cards


inc. VAT

All that glitters... our metallic foil buisness cards. Our extenstive range of options allows you to customise cards to your needs.  Choose from a huge 9 colours from classic Blue to en vogue Rose Gold.

We offer high end luxury at a bargain basement price. We print on to a classic 400gsm silk, the digital foil is then applied on top of a tactile matt soft touch laminate. The foil lays flat on top of the laminate so that it shimmers and catches the light. Please note, Foil is only available on one side.

You can create a truly unique foil business card by choosing from:

  • Rounded corners
  • Soft touch lamination
  • 9 foil colours (including white)

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:

Once you have placed your order you can upload your print ready artwork. Please allow 3mm bleed on all sides, and supply as a CMYK PDF with all fonts outlined or embedded and with a resolution of 300dpi.

The Foil artwork should contain solid black vector shapes in the exact position where the Foil is required. For more information on how to supply your artwork for foiling, please read the technical specification tab. We recommend that any foil is at least 3mm from the trim edge to achieve the best results.

Technical Specification for foil printing

For double sided 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.

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. Please ensure Foil artwork is supplied as a vector, 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. For this reason we advise against representing your foiling within your CMYK artwork.
