Foil stamping is also known as “foil embossing” or “hot foil stamping”—it’s all the same thing, and this prized printing method allows the creation of really breathtaking gold wedding invitations, or silver wedding invitations, or whatever shine your ♥ desires! We love foil because it gives great solid coverage, and now we can incorporate true metallics into our custom invitation design and printing—and we also appreciate how foil stamping draws on some history too, such as the old tradition of adorning books with lavish gold accents. That said, this isn’t your great-grandmother’s foil stamping: mix letterpress and foil stamping in a single design; have your invitations printed in bold beautiful coloured foils (fuchsia! purple! teal!); or go two tone, mixing a gold matte foil with a gold shine foil for a truly wowing look. Foil stamping gives a great impression into the paper, just like letterpress printing does. Foil-stamped invitations can be recycled like any paper, though we bet your guests may hang onto theirs as keepsakes!
Bella Figura Foil Stamped Montage
You can now choose to customise any of the designs from our Bella Figura letterpress wedding invitation collection or your couture wedding invitation design with foil stamping. Or you can choose to print your invitation in both foil and letterpress- it’s totally up to you! Note that foil stamping is a slightly more expensive printing method than letterpress (though it’s worth it, trust us!), and the foil printing process doesn’t allow for rush turnarounds.
