How do I supply my artwork for foil-folded invitation printing?

Firstly, we recommend downloading our design template, designed to ensure your artwork stays within the bounds of our safe zones, allowing enough bleed and preventing any unwanted cropping. From there, you’ll need to separate all CMYK and foil elements onto their own artboard/page, allowing 2mm of bleed for cutting tolerances. All artwork will need formatting to CMYK, with your resolution set to a minimum of 3000DPI. Supply your artwork in PDF, JPG, packaged AI, or EPS formats and keep all text, logos, and foreground images within a 0.1” (3mm) margin from the edge of the page. If you have any queries when it comes to setting up your artwork for foil printing, don’t hesitate to get in touch with a member of our team.

Do I have to have laminate on my folded foil invitations?

While we don’t like to impose selections on you, soft-touch lamination is a must when it comes to most foil-printed products, foil-folded invitations included. Sandwiched between your print and foil layer, our soft touch laminate is incredibly thin and works as a protective top coat that helps your foil shine bright while ensuring maximum durability. To see (and feel) our laminate for yourself, we recommend ordering a sample pack.

Will I be able to write on my folded foiled invitations?

Of course! If you’re only opting for metallic foil on the outside of your folded invitation, you’re welcome to keep the inside free of laminate, making it easy to write on with a standard ballpoint pen. If you want to write on a side that has metallic foil, however, you will want to do a bit of pen testing. Our lamination may make handwriting with certain pens a little tricky, so we recommend either testing your pens out on some of our samples or ordering a few extra copies of your invites to give you a few to test your new pens on.

Which paper should I choose?

The paper types for this product have all been curated and tested in-house, meaning they all provide stunning results when it comes to foil-folded invitations. Paper choice is entirely down to the overall vibe of your event, so we recommend ordering a sample pack to help you decide between our silk, gloss, uncoated, recycled, and colorplan stocks.

Can you design my foil-folded invitations for me?

Absolutely! We have an in-house team of design experts ready to start work on your folded foiled invitations. To team up with our designers, simply place your order and send us your design brief. From there, you can expect the first proof copy of your folded foil invitation design in your inbox in as little as 1 working day, allowing you to suggest any changes you need your designer to make.

Can I choose more than one foil colour?

Yes, but only if you want foil on the inside an outside of your folded invitations. In short, we cannot apply more than one foil colour to a single side, however, we can apply a different colour to the outer and inner, meaning you can choose up to 2 foil shades for double-sided foil printing.
