 2.  Foil Cards

Foil Photo Cards are created by a process known as foil stamping, pressing, or printing. Foil printing involves applying a metallic foil to paper for a decorative finish. This additional step in the printing process adds a little production time to your order.

3. Ultrathick vs. Standard Card Thickness

Our Ultrathick Cards are created by a process of gluing together multiple sheets of premium, superfine paper. This process creates a rigid final product that is thicker than most common holiday cards.
