Metallic Ink Cards

  • Make your branding shine and completely reflect who you are when you hand over a Metallic Ink business card from Silkcards.
    As an elegant alternative to foil stamping, metallic inks contain small particles of metal. As the ink dries, the metal particles rise to the surface and reflect light and give your graphics a distinctive sheen that is more subdued. Metallic Ink Silkcards* uses Pantone inks in either PMS877 (silver) or PMS 872 (gold) to make your card sizzle with personality.
    All cards are full color and full bleed and are silk laminated on both sides for a smooth finish. These durable cards are water- and tear-resistant.
    Add another layer of dramatic flair to your cards by adding optional features to your cards such as: embossing or debossing, rounded corners, Spot UV, perforations or custom die-cutting. Whichever route you choose to go, a Metallic Ink business card will help to identify and differentiate yourself from your competition.
    * 1 Metallic Ink color (1 side) is included.
    * We used PMS 877 Silver and PMS 872 Gold as the specs for the ink.

What is Foil?

Foil is a special finish that can be applied to any desired area onto our products. Foil adds a shiny metallic effect that can be used to highlight your logo, design or unique graphic. 

Does Foil come in a gradient format?

Foil cannot be made with a gradient. We have special patterns that can be applied to Foil as a multiple color effect, but it cannot have a gradient.

Does foil come in a matte finish?

Foil is a shiny metallic effect and no matter how it is added, it will always be shiny. However, you can add spot uv on top of the foil to minimize the metallic effect. Although it is not always recommended.

Can I put Spot UV on top of Foil?

Yes, you can add Spot UV on top of foil. However, we recommend not to always do this. The reason being that SPOT UV will minimize the metallic effect, but it has a high chance of causing minimal registration issues by putting SPOT UV on top of FOIL.

What is raised foil?

Raised foil is a term used by many professionals in the print industry. The correct way to address is that, yes, we offer Raised Foil. Although it is not necessarily raised. We can add the effect of embossing and then add foil on top of it.
