Metallic Foil Greeting Cards
Matte Lamination + Gold / Silver Foil
Print gold foil or silver foil on laminated greeting cards for a regal, festive effect. With our affordable foil printing, you’ll be able to offer metallic foil greeting cards while your competitors can’t.
Below are the envelope sizes for each of our standard greeting card sizes. Please note that any custom size greeting cards will not be a perfect fit with our standard envelopes. These envelopes will not be printed (white only). For printed envelopes, please order here.
14pt + 2pt Laminated Stock
Our custom foil greeting cards start with 14pt C2S gloss stock. After we print your CMYK image, we apply a matte lamination sheet, which increases the thickness of the cards. Finally, we add the custom foil printing.
Print Gold and Silver Foil
With our affordable gold foil printing, you’ll be able to offer your clients more than just CMYK. Custom greeting cards with foil have that extra layer of luxury, professionalism, or festivity.
Raised Foil Greeting Cards
Foil greeting card printing doesn’t just add an extra metallic color; it adds texture too. Your clients will be able to physically feel the raised metallic foil printing on their greeting cards.
Folded Artworks (Greeting Cards, Folded Business Cards, etc.)
Ensure the file matches the product's required dimensions. Ensure that the artwork is created in CMYK 300 dpi with 1/16 inch bleeds on all sides.
Separate artwork into two files: one is for foil lamination, for which the artwork's color should be set to 100% black. Another file should be in the CMYK color space for artwork that is not foil printed.
Export all files into PDF format with bleeds.
