Raised Foil Cards
   

Raised Foil Cards

 
ADD A FLASH OF BRILLIANCE
Raised Foil added to suede cards gives you a WOW factor that can be seen and felt. The combination of raised foil contrasted with the velvety smooth suede foundation creates a tactile experience that customers see and feel.

Metallic embossed effects can enhance amazing detail in images, special accents, and logos.

These Suede Cards are printed on 16pt card stock, laminated on both sides with 1.5mil scuff resistant, soft velvet laminate, which give them a substantial thickness of 19pt.

Please note that the raised foil effect is used for the front of your product only and at this time, only gold foil is available.

What are Raised Foil Cards and How do I set them up?

 

Raised Foil cards are printed on 16pt card stock, laminated on both sides with 1.5mil scuff resistant, soft velvet laminate, which gives them a substantial thickness of 19pt. Please note that the raised foil effect is used for the front of your product only. Foil Worx has a flat finish foil whereas Raised Foil has a raised foil finish, that if you run your fingers over the card you will feel the foil. The height of the foil is approximately 60 microns.

Raised Foil jobs require a mask file. When creating a Raised Foil job, you must include a Raised Foil mask file along with the regular print file. The Raised Foil mask file is used to show where the foil needs to be applied.Please only use solid 100% black color (C 0%, M 0%, Y 0%, K 100%) to indicate where you would like the foil. Do not use shadows, glows or grayscale images. White will indicate no foil.

Knockouts are not recommended since there may be a shift (up to 1/16”) when the foil is applied.

 

Can I have any printing under the foil mask?

 

We highly recommend having a solid color behind the foil mask. We do not recommend having any artwork or text under the foil mask since it might be visible through the foil mask. Knockouts are not recommended since there may be a shift (up to 1/16”) when the foil is applied.

 

How much can be Raised Foil and What is the smallest font size I can use?

 

For best results, please make sure that foil coverage is less than 50%. Otherwise, the foil will be wavy and won’t look good. The only time a 50-75% coverage is acceptable is with patterns, thin strokes or small shapes.As for font size, we do not recommend having fonts smaller than 10pt on the Raised Foil Artwork. However, if you use fonts with thicker strokes or bold fonts, we do not recommend having fonts smaller than 12pt.
