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, patterns and text can all be foiled.  This process creates very impressive and prestigious end results.

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