April 21, 2006, Newsletter Issue #28: Foil Stamping

Tip of the Week

Want to add an elegant look to your book cover? Try foil stamping on the cover and spine. Foil stamping can add metallic brilliance to any cover and really help your print to stand out. Foil stamping can either be computerized (semi-automated machine used) or done in handset type (for more detailed, unique layouts). The price is dependent upon how elaborate the design is.

*As a general rule when selecting an imprint color, choose darker imprints on lighter materials and lighter imprints on darker materials (this will create the greatest contrast).

*Make sure that your cover treatment is done in the bindery plant.
