Personalized foiling? … It’s a game changer

You have heard of variable data printing. Well, personalized foiling works much the same way. However, instead of simply printing the name in a “normal” color, a digital press first lays down toner (or varnish depending on which system your printer uses) of the different names or images you want to foil. In a second step the foil is applied and adheres to said toner or varnish.

And because it doesn’t require any dies, plates or films, each piece can be a one-off. To the digital press it makes no difference.

This opens up a whole new world of potential uses: 

  • Folding cartons for a collection of high-end confections featuring several different foiled names and designs 
  • Shimmering point-of-purchase (POP) displays customized for dozens of different retail outlets 
  • Postcards featuring each recipient’s name in large, foiled lettering 
  • A limited edition series of art prints boasting glimmering foil accents in different places from print to print. 

The possibilities, in other words, are as boundless as your imagination.
