If you’d like to combine shine with substance, gold foil business cards is the way to go. As a business owner, your goal is to make a good first impression, have people remember your brand name, and for you to make a great impact overall. These are things that can be achieved by launching a marketing campaign which does not necessarily have to be all-digital – print still works. This is especially true when it comes to distributing business cards. Even if your business is purely online, the fact that you’re still using business cards and handing it over to clients will make you stand out.
So why choose gold foil business cards? Just like plastic business cards and offset business cards, this is a type of premium business card so it immediately stands out in a stack of cardboard or linen. Metallic foil business cards are made using a foil stamping method. The effect is that a certain part of the card – it can be a name, logo, or photo – is colored gold, silver, or copper. When set against dark black or white background, the metallic color will shimmer under any lighting condition.
Because of the foil stamping method used, gold foil business cards must be made using silk 17-pt. paper. It has 60% the thickness of a credit card. So when you compare a thin linen business card with a thick, gold-foil card – which one do you think will stand out?
Another extra feature that you can consider when having this type of business card made is applying a spot UV coating. This protects the print on the card from wearing out, even after prolonged sun exposure. Foil stamped cards are also resistant to tearing, creases, and it’s even water-resistant!
When having business cards made, you really should not scrimp. Instead, go all out and use a laminating effect like gold foil stamping. With such elegant, classy, shimmery cards, your business name or brand will be stamped on the mind of whoever is holding your business card. The fact that you exerted such an effort in having elegant business cards made will make them think highly of your brand, and make them want to do business with you. What more is there to ask for?
