What is Foiling / Foil Stamping?

Foiling or foil stamping is a premium printing method that involves the creation of a custom metal die of your artwork. The die is used to stamp the foil material onto the surface of your product. We offer many different colors and finishes of foil; ranging from Matte White, to metallic colors like Gold or Silver. The cost of foil is calculated based on each color used on each side of your design.

You should not choose foil if:

  • You want the most economical option available
