Raised Foil on Suede Soft Touche Cards
Suede with Raised Foil Add a flash of brilliance to suede cards that you can see and feel. The combination of raised foil contrasted with the velvety smooth suede foundation creates a tactile experience that customers can see and feel. Metallic embossment effects can enhance amazing detail in images, special accents, and logos. The Suede Cards are printed on 16pt card stock, laminated on both sides with 1.5mil scuff resistant, soft velvet laminate, which give them a substantial thickness of 19pt.
Holographic: Holographic Raised Foil brings a multicolor, 3-D (three-dimensional) effect to your printed product.
Raised Foil jobs require a mask file. When creating a Raised Foil job, you must include a Raised Foil mask file along with the regular print file. The Raised Foil mask file is used to show where the foil needs to be applied.
Please note, the mask file must be a vector file created in vector-based programs such as Illustrator.
Please only use solid 100% black color (C 0%, M 0%, Y 0%, K 100%) to indicate where you would like the foil. Do not use shadows, glows or grayscale images. White will indicate no foil.
Knockouts are not recommended since there may be a shift (up to 1/16”) when the foil is applied.
For best results, please make sure that foil coverage is less than 50%. Otherwise, the foil will be wavy and won’t look good.
We do not recommend having fonts smaller than 10pt on the Raised Foil Artwork. However, if you use fonts with thicker strokes or bold fonts, we do not recommend having fonts smaller than 12pt.
Please see the picture below for reference.
For a rich black background the CYMK should be set to 60, 40, 40, 100
All fonts should be "outlined" to be considered print ready. This does not apply to TIFF and JPG files.
Please build your press-ready digital files by adding .075" dimension for business cards, postcards, and rackcards
