Metallic finish is a thin yet durable layer of metallic foil applied to the front surface of your business card. It can be applied to specific areas (text, a logo, an icon) or the entire surface. When any colour ink is applied over the metallic finish it creates a brilliant highlighting effect that seems to change colour.
Metallic finish looks best when applied to areas of your document that contain light or bright colours. Dark colours reduce the shine and brilliance of the metallic accent.

Spot UV adds a raised, glossy coating to give both your text and visuals texture and contrast, making them pop.
Embossed foil adds a raised, foil layer to give both text and images some texture and contrast, making them pop.
How does it work?
