Foil Stamped Presentation Folders

Imprinting your company name and logo in foil on a pocket folder makes a professional first impression. So what is foil imprinting?

Foil imprinting (sometimes called foil stamping) is the process of transferring foil film onto the pocket folder using a copper plate that is etched with your logo or design.

Art for foil stamping should be sent in as black and white line art at 300 dpi or more and at the final imprinted size or larger. When uploading your artwork, please note that lower resolutions and sizes may result in a loss of detail. Also, foil stamping may cause fine details or screens to fill in and change your image.

Be sure to read through our file prep guidelines prior to uploading your artwork.

Submitting a logo for foil stamping

Your folder will look best if you submit a black and white logo with clean lines. Be sure to remove any gradients, drop shadows, or very fine lines, as fine lines may not imprint correctly. If you cannot supply us with satisfactory art, we may be able to assist you. See the examples below.

Good Logo for Printed Pocket Folders

While good for print, there is no definition in the logo as to what will be foil stamped and what will be left as negative space.

The black portions of this logo are what will be stamped. There are no fine lines in the artwork, so no detail will be lost when foil stamped.
