Know Your Raised Foil Basics 

Raised foil finish is a printing effect that combines traditional spot UV with foil stamping. 

The Raised Effect 

The embossed areas are thicker and have a slightly different texture, so your foil accents are more defined to the touch. The height of the raised foil is a full 50 microns above the paper’s surface. 

The Foil Effect 

Foil printing is achieved using a process called hot foil stamping. Pressure and heat are applied to transfer metallic foil onto the paper. The result is a smooth and shiny finish that glows like real metal. Three raised foil colors are available: gold, silver, and holographic. 

A Stock With Substance

The Perfect Size for Any Introduction

Raised foil business cards come in the U.S. standard size which is 2" x 3.5". This refers to the finished business card design that’s printed and ready to be handed out.

Guidelines for setting up your print file for raised foil printing.

  • For better 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% to 70% coverage is acceptable is with patterns, thin strokes or small shapes.
  • The raised foil file must be a vector art created in a vector based program such as illustrator. Otherwise you won't have sharp edges on the artwork if you use a raster image for the raised foil mask file.
  • We do not recommend having fonts smaller than 10 pt 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.
