Foiled Wedding Invitations
Foiling is a massive trend right now in both Wedding and Event Stationery, and something that Helen Scott Design has been offering couples for a while. When it comes to ordering and the printing process, it is slightly different to how my standard house collections work, so I thought it would be helpful to give you an insight!
When it comes to foiling there are two different methods, Block Foiling (more on that below!) and Digital Foiling, as standard Helen Scott Design use the Digital Foiled method. The printing process is basically foil laminating, using heat to apply a metallic foil to selected areas of your design resulting in flat print finish. As it does not require the use of plates, there is no set up charge making this method more affordable then Block Foiling. This also allows for shorter runs and smaller orders.
Intricate or smaller fonts aren’t ideal for digital foiling, but Helen Scott Design will be on hand to advise you which parts of your design will foil best.
Card Stock and Colours
Your chosen design will be printed on a 350 gsm white card, finished with a velvet lamination to protect the foiled accents.
There are 7 different coloured foils, Silver, Gold, Rose Gold, Copper, Red, Blue or Green meaning is a colour to compliment every design.

Block Foiling involves applying foil to the card using heated plates, which leaves the foiled areas slightly debossed and textured.
