If you’re browsing photo Christmas cards, you might be surprised to see just how many options you have for fun formats and unique printing processes. Over the years, foil-pressed cards have become wildly popular and it’s easy to see why.
But what exactly is a foil holiday card? It’s a greeting card that has sparkling metallic foil stamped onto a card, usually in the form of a design element like snowflakes, frames or fun botanical prints.
Foil-stamping – also known as foil-pressing – is applied by pressing a metal die onto the paper, then using heat and pressure to transfer the foiled design onto the paper.
The results shimmers and shines in the light, which is absolutely perfect for the holiday season!
