What Are The Benefits Of Foil Wedding Invitations?
Foil wedding invites have been a firm favourite among brides-to-be for a long time. The hottest wedding invitation trends usually use a touch of metallics to add a wow factor to the design. Let’s take a look at the benefits of foil wedding invitations and why they are consistently chosen for adding the finishing touch to printed wedding stationery.
Large Range Of Foil Colours For Invites
We have the largest range of colours and paper types, making it so versatile that it complements any invitation style or wedding theme. There are over 300 foil print combinations to choose from, so adding an elegant touch of luxury to any colour scheme has never been easier. No wonder we’re so popular with wedding planners!
Digital Foil Printing Allows More Paper And Finishing Options
Our equipment allows us to print any design in any colour, giving you a real sense of unlimited customisability that you’ll not find elsewhere!
We can even print on textured paper that has a debossed pattern that adds a whole new depth to your foil prints. If you choose coloured paper, we always have a great selection of colours to pick, all from the luxurious G.F Smith Colorplan range that we then laminate to ensure it has a smooth enough surface for the foil.
Our state-of-the-art equipment provides a fast foil printing method so that our orders are shipped 5 days from proof of approval and we use next day postage in the UK and 1-3 days for USA and Europe.
Value For Money
Wedding invitation printing used to be expensive and time consuming, especially if you wanted to use foil highlights! It involved creating metal plates with a CNC drill before hot stamping wedding invitations with the metallic foil. Luckily the technology has advanced and modern equipment eliminates the need for stamping plates. This ensures consistency and correct alignment each time.
Unlike hot stamping, our digital foil printing technique is suitable for designs with very intricate details, as you can see in our blog How Does Foil Printing Work? The finish is much shinier than hot stamping too. This is partly because you can have a soft touch laminate finish which provides a smoother surface that allows the foil to reflect more light.
Environmentally Friendly Options
Another reason to use digital foiling rather than hot stamping is because there is less waste. The hot stamping technique requires a bespoke metal plate to be manufactured for each design. Once that design is printed, the chances are high that the stamp can’t be used again.
Our foil invites are recyclable despite having a laminate layer, they can be simply put into the recycling bin with other paper and card products. You can also have your wedding invitations printed onto recycled paper for a more sustainable option.
Gold Foil Wedding Invitations
In this example, you can see that the gold foil adds a luxury shine to both types of invites, while reflecting the light to draw focus without influencing the style of the design. Whether you have a romantic floral theme or a modern, bold and simple design, metallic elements can make it look more sophisticated.
We can also use this printing technique to create foil save the date cards, signs, stickers, wedding place cards, menus and thank you cards. This means you can have the same design throughout your wedding stationery for a coordinated look.
