First up, WHERE did November go?! I am really not prepared for it to be Christmas in 3 weeks. As much as I love Santa and all.
But look – brand new hot foil press/stamped business cards! Just what I need to take my mind off the utter chaos re the impending festive season.
I am the proud new owner of these brand new foil stamped business cards, and boy, are they beauties. Hot foil-pressed in rose gold (looove) onto ultra thick 600gsm ivory cotton stock, these cards feel so luxurious in the hand, I almost don’t want to give them away. But such is the sole point of business cards, so out into the world they shall (somewhat reluctantly) go!
I completely love foil press at the moment – the metallic finish paired with the impression of letterpress – does it get any better? I think not. It’s perfect for adding a sophisticated touch to wedding invitations, business cards or just about anything paper-related. My first love is of course letterpress, but foil press just adds another dimension to it, which is ideal for certain occasions. Want shiny, sparkly metallic gold or silver? Due to the cotton paper we print on for letterpress – which is very absorbent – metallic colours like gold and silver print quite matte, with just a subtle sheen. Lovely in itself, but for those times when you want fully-fledged sparkle and shine, foil stamping is the way to go.
If you’re after some foil pressed business cards for yourself, or foil pressed anything come to think of it – get in touch and let us know your requirements – we’ll come back to you with a quote.
There’s a whole lot more foil press amazing-ness to come soon – we’ll be updating the website over the Christmas/New Year period with many new letterpress wedding invitation designs, lots of them featuring gorgeous foil stamping in colours such as gold, silver, rose gold, pink, lilac and copper… watch this space!
Happy weekend all! x
