Envelopments' digital printing now enables metallic gold and silver ink to be printed on card stocks and papers at a lower cost and faster turnaround than other traditional printing processes as there are no plates required or expensive set up fees to accomplish this type of printing.
Similar to digital printing with CMYK toners, metallic gold and silver toner is fused to the surface of card stocks and papers with heat. This digital option offers a great way to highlight metallic gold and silver text and graphics on dark pigmented stocks with smaller quantities and quicker turnaround. We recommend using matte stocks for better metallic contrast. Make sure your type is large enough to be legible.
PRODUCT AVAILABILITY: Digital Metallic Gold and Silver is available for cut stocks, folded cards and envelope liners. Digital Gold and Silver can be printed on text weight stocks, however, we cannot print Gold or Silver on envelopes at this time.
