Foil Colors for Traditional Foil Stamping


  • Foil colors are very difficult to capture since the color changes as you change the angle of the foil. Only use this as a rough reference. If the foil color is critical, we recommend going to our office to check out the color in person.
  • Certain colors are more difficult to print than others which can cause production delays. In worst case scenarios, we need to change the color of the foil.
  • Certain colors are more difficult to obtain than others. We recommend choosing your top 3 choices and your priority so that we can move to the next color if needed.
