We will then advise you on the most economic way to produce the job.

Benefits of Hot Foiling

So why add foiling to a job? For starters it adds prestige to your product and can increase the level of your brand positioning within your market place. Foiling makes your printed collateral standout, it can help increase sales levels and can also be used to add protection to your product through the use of holographic foil or micro-structures in the foil surface.

Our main foil supplier is FoilCo, however we are happy to source from other major suppliers such as Kurz and Phillips Foils if you your client has specified a foil reference.

We like experimenting, and encourage our clients to do the same. Micro-structures (also known as Unifraxion) are an excellent way to add value to your product without adding too much additional cost. By using fluted blocks we are also able to foil and emboss in one pass thus guaranteeing perfect registration. Using multiple colours is also very effective, as can the use of matt foils and brushed foils. With our machine set up we are able to foil three coloured foils in one pass.
