If you love everything that shimmers, why not consider having gold foil business cards made? More than the glitter, it’s the impression that will really make an impact to the person who will receive your card. To get started, what are the things that you need to know about this type of business card?
First, gold foil business cards are made using a process called foil stamping. Similar to plastic business cards, the printing and lamination process is not as straightforward as, say, linen business cards. With foil stamping, metallic foil is used to create the glittery effect. It is recommended that you use a dark black or bright white background, for it to highly contrast with the metallic color – which can be gold, silver, or copper.
During the printing process, the white paper is used. Depending on the background, a white or black strip is combined with a second foil mask file. Based on the design, certain areas get foil while the other parts do not. The result is that a logo, name, or photograph stands out with the metallic gold color against the black or white background.
Second, when ordering metallic foil business cards, you must look for a printing company with the length of experience and the equipment required in achieving such an effect. Printing companies like BlockbusterPrint offer such services, so you can rest assured that products like offset business cards, gold foil business cards, and silk business cards are made with excellent quality.
Third, make sure that the design of the business card is suitable for foil stamping. Let’s say that you are a real estate broker and you want only your name to be embossed in gold color. The card should be design in such a way that the background and the rest of the text is in black or white, while your name is embossed in gold color. Under any lighting condition, your name will shimmer and get noticed by the person who is holding the card.
Indeed, metallic foil stamped business cards will make your brand stand out – so consider having one made for your business right now.
