If you’re orchestrating an award ceremony, you may be wondering how you can make it extra special for your awards recipients. With metallic foil certificate printing, you can adorn important elements with certificate foil, whether that’s gold, silver, copper, or a different colour entirely.

With the option to add as little or as much foil as your design demands, you’re free to create a full-cover golden certificate or embellish your awards with a holographic emblem, pink name, or chrome company logo.

A Certificate Foiling Masterclass

At The Foil Printing Co., we’ve spent years perfecting the art of certificate printing with foil, so much so that we consider ourselves industry leaders (feel free to test us!). Not only do we offer more shimmering foil shades than the majority of our competitors, but more paper types and innovative finishes than you’re likely to find elsewhere. That’s right, we give you the option to browse an immense metallic colour catalogue curated to match most branding colour themes and aesthetics, along with a premium paper selection to match. What’s more, we’ll automatically apply our luxury soft-touch laminate to your custom foil certificates, resulting in an exceptional finish designed to keep your foil certificate looking extraordinary for as long as you expect them to. To see our foil, paper, and laminate catalogue for yourself, we recommend ordering a sample pack.

Beyond foil, we give you the option to customise the shape and size of your custom foil certificates, with standard shapes and sizes available alongside the option to input your own bespoke shape and size requests. You can even double the thickness of your certificates or explore our innovative Colour Core material, designed to give your certificates an extra pop of colour.

The Service Behind the Certificate Foil

When it comes to certificate foiling, our expert in-house team have honed their skills and become absolute masters of the art. From design to foil execution and quality control, we work tirelessly to ensure every single foil certificate is recipient-worthy, keeping you firmly in the loop from the moment you place your order to the second your certificate printing with foil lands on your doorstep.

As far as design goes, we’ve got you covered. If you’ve got your own good-to-go design, simply email it across to us post-checkout and we’ll get it printed, foiled, and with you in no time. If you need help in the design department, simply send us your design brief and you’ll be assigned a designer to do all the hard work for you.

How long does your foil certificate printing take?

The turnaround time for your metallic foil certificate printing is dependent on a number of factors, including the level of print finishing required to complete your order. For an estimated turnaround time, configure your order above and check the ‘dispatch’ section before adding your order to the cart. If your order is time sensitive, we recommend contacting our customer service team to ensure we can work to your deadline.

I need 100x individually personlaised custom foil certificates, is this something you can do?

Absolutely! At The Foil Printing Co., we understand that personalisation is the most important aspect of certificate presentation. If you don’t want hand-written names on your foil certificates, head to the ‘split across multiple designs?’ dropdown in the artwork section above, select ‘all prints personalised via data merge’ and supply us with your data merge spreadsheet post-checkout. Your spreadsheet should be presented with each individual certificate on a separate row, with the personalised aspects detailed. This could be the recipient’s name, the award title, the award date, or something else entirely.

Is lamination compulsory for foil certificate printing?

When it comes to certificate printing with foil, we’ve put our entire process through rigorous testing to find the ultimate combination of materials for the finest results, and this includes our silky soft-touch laminate. Sandwiched between your print layer and your foil layer, this luxurious laminate works as an ultra-thin top coat, allowing your chosen foil shade to shine as bright as possible while ensuring maximum durability for your certificates.

Can I write on my foil certificate?

If you want to personalise your foil certificates yourself, chances are you’re going to need to write on them. Because our foil certificate printing is presented with pre-applied lamination, we recommend ordering a sample pack prior to placing your order, allowing you to test out a range of pens on our soft-touch laminate. Don’t have time to order a sample pack? In this case, we recommend adding a few extra certificates to your order, allowing you to use a few for that all-important pen testing.

Can I order gold, silver, and bronze certificates for my award ceremony?

Yes, of course you can. If you’re wanting to order certificates that utilise different certificate foil shades, you’ll need to configure each set separately. For example, if you want 75x certificates split across 3x foil shades, you will need to configure your gold certiciates and add them to your cart, doing the same again for silver, and so on. Once all three are in your cart, you can check out with your entire order. Please note, the closest bronze shade we have available is ‘metallic copper’.

Can you design my foil certificates for me?

Yes! We employ a multi-talented team of in-house designers who are ready to tackle your certificate design for you. Simply send across a design brief post-checkout, outlining those all-important certificate details, logos, images, names, aesthetics, etc, and your assigned designer will get to work.
