Auroraprint - hot foil printing.


Foil Printing Quality, Finish & Textures.



There are many print companies in the UK offering a foil printing service, but some of them aren't doing justice to the process by supplying a low standard of print, not explaining the process correctly, or in some cases using digital foil print instead of proper [hot] foil print.

This particular web-page has been created to give people a chance to see what the foils look like close-up and how well they can actually print, even on small detailing.

Below are some close-up photos of foil printed cards to show the quality of print that can be achieved with the foil printing process.

We can use brass or magnesium print plates to apply the foils, but the brass print plates will allow for more depth (impression) on the foil, so are generally the recommended plates, especially with pigment foils such as gloss white and black.
