Foil Stamping

Foil stamping adds a thin film of metal to your stationery. Any color can be used, although silver and gold are the most popular. It is often used in conjunction with embossing or debossing to create a more dynamic impression. They both require a die and adding heat and pressure. For these reasons, the two are often thought to be the same. The difference is that embossing actually changes the surface of your card. 


Foil stamping should be done on smooth, uncoated paper for best results. Textured papers such as linen or felt are more difficult because the uneven surface interrupts the pressing process. It’s also good to avoid using coatings or varnishes in the area to be foil stamped.
