About Foil Printing


Digital foil printing (foil laminating) uses heat to apply a metallic foil to selected areas of the print.  Foil laminating can be used for both small and large quantities, as it is a digital process you can even add foil to variable information (names). Shapes, pattern and text can all be foiled.  This process creates very impressive and prestigious end results.

Foil Selection


We offer a wide selection of different types of foils, choose from:

   •  Glossy or matt foils
   •  Metallic, holographic or transparent

Foiling works well with a soft touch laminate because it offer a high contrast between the foil and the rest of the print as well as giving it a premium, tactile feel.
