Coloured cardstock we offer


Using metallic foil print on coloured cardstock

Metallic foil print is an ideal way to add additional texture and visual appeal to your artwork. Adding a metallic foil to coloured cardstock can make it appear more valuable and unique. Metallic business cards and invites are prevalent and effective as they do a great job of being impactful.


Why use a coloured card for printing?

Our coloured card is great for drawing attention to your work and making it stand out. It also saves on time and ink, as the background colour runs through the entire card. Additionally, this means there are no white edges along the side of your print which results in a fabulous, vibrant finish. No grey, poor quality backgrounds or low-quality colours. Just bold, vivid and impactful colour.


What colours will print on the different colour cardstock?

We often get asked this question. The first thing you need to know is that inks are translucent however metallic foil is opaque. Knowing this, we can then say that the colour of the surface you print on will change how the toner appears. Even on a light cream paper, the tone of the card will alter the colour of the print slightly. The same cannot be said for metallic foil print however as that is opaque and ignores any surface behind it.

Generally, the darker the colour of the card, the more that card will influence the outcome of the ink colour and its visibility. So, on darker shades of cardstock, consider black ink, or if it's too dark, the best choice would be a metallic foil that will ‘sit’ on the colour; rather than blending into it.
