ACA’s Foil Blocking department caters for a very wide range of jobs ranging from business cards printed on small format sheets in low volume to whisky labels printed on B1 sheets in high volume, all in a days work for this department.

Key features

  • Metallic finishings

  • Holographic Finishings

The Precious Metal appearance which is achieved by Gold, Silver or Bronze Foil cannot be matched for quality by any other printing method. 

Where a graphic designer is looking for a prestige finish on a job foil blocking is the natural choice, whether being used for a drop shadow effect, subtle cover message or design. Foil offers such a wide range of finishes from high impact Gloss to Satin over a huge range of colour options (many of which we now hold in stock) 

We now stock Foils such as Hologram Designs and others which can be brought in at short notice. 

It is worth noting that Foil as applied to a printed sheet is completely opaque and because we can hold a tight register with this process it can be used as a means of correcting printing errors (where appropriate) thus saving sheets which may otherwise be wasted. 

Samples of our high quality Foil blocking work are available upon request.
