Frequently Asked Questions

Q: What are the paper stock options? How thick is the paper?
You have a couple options for your Foil Accent business cards. Standard paper (14pt), and Premium paper (16pt). Each point (pt) is equal to .001 of an inch, to give you a frame of reference. You can also pick either glossy or matte finish with either paper.

Q: Can you have foil on both sides of the card? And is two-sided printing included in the price?
No, our printing process for metallic business cards only allows for foil to go on the front of the cards. However, either grayscale or full-color printing is available on the backside of the card for an additional charge.

Q: Do you offer Foil Accent printing for square business cards? Or rounded corner cards?
Unfortunately, we can’t offer Foil Accents on square business cards. However, we are happy to offer foil on rounded corner cards! You can find that option in the choices above.

Q: How do you specify where the foil accent goes on your custom design?
When you’re designing your Foil Accent business cards (even if you’ve chosen an existing template), you can click on text or images and you’ll see an option that lets you turn the special finish on or off. Note that you may not always have this option for all text and images. 

Q: I am planning to upload my own design. How can I choose what is to be metallic?
 If you’re uploading your own artwork, and you want a specific area to be metallic, make sure to upload that part separately then click “on” to activate the metallic finish. For design assistance, we recommend you contact our customer service team.
