Specialty Foil Stamping Printing

Foil Stamping

If you want your printed piece to really shine, add a foil stamp! Foil stamping is a great way to add a custom touch to your printed product by applying a thin film of metal to paper that creates elegant, eye-catching results.

You will need a foil die : An additional one-time fee of $100 is charged for the foil die up to 7 square inches, and $5 for each additional square inch. Plus, an additional $30 is charged per 1,000 pieces, up to 7 square inches for standard foil. For larger pieces or special foils, please email PsPrint's die specialist at diecutting@psprint.com for a custom quote.

Combining foil stamping and die cutting : An additional charge will apply if foil stamping is combined with die cutting for two colors or other special needs that require additional die cutting. The additional cost will be a $40 setup fee and $20 per 1,000 pieces. If there are multiple colors of foil used in the design, the charges will be applied for each color.


How To Place Die-Cut and Foil-Stamp Orders










Foil Stamp Printing Guidelines

In order to ensure the best quality for your foil stamp project, you should follow these requirements. You will need to upload :

  • A print file to the site and attach it to the order, following all of our normal guidelines.
  • A vector file showing only the foil as solid shapes (we will require a different file for each color of foil), and this should be emailed to diecutting@psprint.com for the price quote/die creation.
  • A FPO file showing the foil superimposed on top of the print file, uploaded to the account for reference but not attached.

Please remember:

  • Foil stamping can add two business days on top of ordered turnaround.
  • Registration between the foil and the ink cannot be any less than 1/16"; anything closer than 1/8" requires pre-approval of the die-cutting department.
  • Foil stamping is available for cover stock only.
  • Follow the application-specific file preparation instructions in our help center.
  • Failure to follow these instructions will result in your job being delayed.
