Understanding Foil Stamping:
Foil stamping goes back to the olden days where skilled artists and molten gold were used to create those books. Post the book sizing, golden leaf were manually laid on the cover and then was placed in a hot-stamping press to get the desired stamp.
The way foil printing is done is simply amazing. A thin foil strip either gold or whatever color you choose is threaded to a foil press machine. A blank card (business card, greeting card, or invitation card) is kept under the foil. The heat and pressure are applied which leaves an impression on the paper and voila! A perfect shiny paper is ready! Nowadays, these embossings are even done digitally by placing the paper first with the text or image you desired to be foiled.

I was tasked to get these postcards for my dad who wanted to mail them to our family members for seasons greetings. He had a specific idea in mind for what he wanted and I knew these spot uv coated foil postcards were the perfect choice for him. I decided to choose a blue foil for the postcards which looks amazing. My dad really loved the postcards and that meant that printmagic did their work well.
