Designing for Foil Pressed Holiday Cards

Designing personalized foil pressed holiday cards has never been easier. 

Start by selecting from our most popular card options, including a choice of the rich brown kraft or elegant premium vellum stocks, exterior or two-sided printing and then send us your inspiration. That's it!

Foils work best with bold strokes, heavy lines and reverses. Vector (line) artwork is ideal, but we can usually work magic with any high-contrast single color image, including logos, line drawings, etc.

We can also digitally print on your cards for an added flourish. You can do a full bleed and use a full range of CMYK artwork,but please note that whites will not print and lighter colors tend to get washed out when printed on brown kraft stock. 

Many of these examples are custom foil pressed holiday cards for Paper Delights here in the Wallingford neighborhood of Seattle. Read their story.
