Are you considering printing up some new business cards? What about letterhead, envelopes, or labels? When you’re tackling a print project for you or your business, the options are endless. What type of paper should you choose? Should your logo or design be classic, modern, or ornate? With so many question, where do you begin?
One place to start is to figure out which print method is right for you. When it comes to commercial printing, there are several options to choose from. Digital, is a flat print option that is both fast and affordable, and allows you to print in full color or CYMK. The next step up in flat-printing is off-set, which provides you with a better quality product and a choice of CYMK and PMS colors. Letterpress, is a more time consuming process but with a stunning result. This process presses a plate with your text and logo into the paper for a richer, three-dimensional look. However, if you are truly looking for a business card that blows people away, nothing is more elegant and opulent than foil.
Foil printing begins with the creation of a copper plate that includes your logo, text or whatever part of your card you want to shine. A heating element in our Kluge, warms the plate which allows a transfer of the metallic foil to the solid surface of the paper. The end result is stunning. This process can be combined with any of the other print methods or can stand alone.
