Good Old Gold (foil) vs. Modern Metallic Printing

Who doesn’t love the look of shiny gold! A beautiful gold foil wedding invitation or save the date is sure to catch the eye of all your guests. It gives your card the extra “WOW” factor. I mean just look at this save the date we printed for one of our clients. The gold touches are the perfect addition:

There’s nothing we love more than a nice touch of foil. But gold foil isn’t the only way to get a hint of gold in your printed cards. The printer we work with (if you’ve been keeping up with our blog pots we have mentioned them before,) Merlin Printing – has the most up to date technology in the printing industry. Their Xerox Iridesse printer can print METALLIC colors! & they are the ONLY printer on Long Island that has this printer with these capabilities. We are so lucky to be able to work with them and put this technology to use! Although it doesn’t have the exact same look as foil, it allows us to offer a modern, sleek metallic sheen to your cards (& it’s cost effective for anyone on a strict budget!)

Look at the pictures below. The one on the left is a close up of the save the date in the photo we shared above. The one on the right is a close up picture of some metallic printed table numbers we printed for another client:

Both methods are a beautiful way to add a little shine to your cards. One cool thing about the metallic printing is it can be ANY color, and you can use multiple different metallic colors on your invite. We’re currently working with a bride who is having metallic silver and metallic burgundy on her invitation package. We can’t wait to share the final product from that package! Keep an eye out on our social media pages for some sneak peeks of that package very soon!
