The Foil-Stamping Process

By pressing gold, rose gold, silver, or Christmas red foil—with the help of a heating element and a die or plate—onto a card surface, the foil adheres to the cards and, as a result of the combination of heat and pressure, the paper is thus indented. The result is an appealing antique or handmade-like effect that is felt as much as it is seen, and this is what makes foil-stamped Christmas cards unlike any other. Note that the approach is somewhat similar to embossing, which results in a raised surface. Both present a professional, elegant, sophisticated appeal sure to be appreciated by those in your circle.

Foil-Stamped Cards With New Year’s Greetings

Foil holiday cards aren’t just for Christmas. You can send your season’s greeting cards for the New Year as well. New Year’s cards are becoming increasingly popular. They make a good choice for those who have missed the Christmas card deadline, and they’re more culturally inclusive, as not everyone celebrates Christmas. Shutterfly has a selection of stunning foil-stamped cards to celebrate the New Year. These picture cards can feature you, your family, or anyone else you’d like to acknowledge, including your dog or cat. In the process of adding foil-stamping to your New Year’s cards, you transform a basic holiday photo card into a treasure that recipients will want to hold onto long after the holidays are over.
