3D foil is applied by layering a liquid gloss directly on top of the lamination. It uses the same method as our 3D spot UV business cards.

For Foil business cards, please supply your artwork as a 4-page PDF. Page 1 is the front of the artwork, page 2 is the back of the artwork, page 3 is the Foil artwork for the front and page 4 is blank. The Foil artwork should contain solid black shapes in the exact position where the Foil is required.

Please ensure Foil artwork is supplied as a vector and is 100% black only and does not contain any cyan, magenta or yellow.

Please note: Foil application has registration tolerances of approximately ±0.5 mm. It is not therefore recommended that small text (10pt minimum) or thin lines (1pt minimum) are foiled as perfect register cannot be guaranteed.
If you are printing a one-sided document, then a 2-page PDF is required where page 1 is the design and page 2 is the Foil artwork. If you are printing a double-sided document, with foil, please still submit a 4-page PDF - Page 4 being a blank page.

Finished size is 85 x 55mm (91 x 61mm with 3mm bleed)
Include 3mm bleed on all sides
Supply as a CMYK PDF
Outline or embed fonts
300dpi resolution
Any foiling must be at least 3mm from the trim edge
Foil artwork must be in vector format
The minimum font size is 10pt and line weights should be at least 1pt.
