Let’s Learn about Gold Foiling

What is gold foiling or foil stamping?
Gold Foiling is a special printing process, which uses metal dyes, rolling machines and heat to transfer the foil onto your card and create a bright and shining pattern that is truly luxurious. It is one of the processes carried out on many designer Indian wedding cards.

How does Gold Foiling work?
First, special dyes are made for the design, using materials like copper or brass. These dyes are created using hi-tech laser cutters and then fine-tuned by hand by expert karigars.

The card and dye are loaded into the foil press machine with a roll of gorgeous gold foil. This has to be done carefully to make the alignments 100% perfect! The machine then runs and stamps the cards with high pressure and heat, transferring the foil design onto the card (hence also called hot foiling).

– Modern couples with a minimalistic style can use foiling to great advantage

– These foils have a metallic, luxurious finish that adds charm to your card instantly and the shine doesn’t fade ever. It can make all the difference to a card that is not heavy in design elements
