Foil Blocking Print
Foil blocking, typically a commercial print process, is the application of pigment or metallic foil, often gold or silver , but can also be various patterns or what is known as pastel foil which is a flat opaque colour or white special film-backed material, to paper where a heated die is stamped onto the foil, making it adhere to the surface leaving the design of the die on the paper.
Foil Blocking is one of the oldest forms of print – and it has to be said really does give the WOW factor to any business card, invitation, brochure cover or packaging. Foil blocking comes in many colours from white on a lovely black card to silver, pink, green, blue, purple and many more colours. There are many variations of colours – the choice is endless.
Foil blocking is more expensive than traditional print for business cards, covers on brochures or invitiations, but, gives a special finish for a prestigious piece of marketing collateral. whilst the cost is higher than litho or digital print the end product is worth the cost.
