About 3D Gold Foil business cards
Opt for Innovative 3D Gold Foil
Gold foil embossing is nothing new to the printing industry. Gold has always been added as a flourishing touch to a first edition or a wedding invitation. But today you are in for a treat. Our 3D Gold Foil is an innovation in itself. Add a layer to highlight a graphic element in your logo or feature a favorite design. It's easy to add a bit of glitz & glam when you opt for 3D Gold Foil.
Free print on both sides!
Recto/verso print: just add a second page to your document.
Add a special finish
Add a spot color swatch (100% Black) for all the elements you like to be in 3D Gold Foil. Give this swatch a logical name. (We prefer: 3Dgoldfoil).
We don't need a separate PDF file for the special finishing parts.
CMYK + 3D Gold Foil = 1 PDF file = CMYK + Spot Color (100% black)
Make sure all your special finish design elements are vector elements set to “Overprint fill”. This way you make sure that your CMYK design also fills the space behind your special finish design elements, so you won’t see white marks or lines.
Before exporting files:
- Remove all objects from the artboard that are not intended to be printed, including any extra swatches, links or extra objects.
- Your artwork should be in CMYK color mode.
- Images should be at least 200 dpi (we prefer 300 dpi).
- Delete the guidelines layer if you used a template.
Extend the background of your design to fill the full “bleed area”. This way you don’t end up with white edges when your business cards are trimmed.
Keep all the important stuff for your design (like the text, logo, graphic elements, etc.) inside this area. Don’t add your background – that still needs to run to the edges of the “bleed area”.
This shows where the design will be cut off in the end. Make sure you add crop marks to your document when you save or export to pdf.
So this will be the actual size of your business card.
