Foiling is often used in magazine publishing, packaging, book covers, event invites, business cards or social stationery.
Any type of foiling is environmentally friendly – all foil is recyclable – and so you’ll find people using various terms and wording to describe it such as eco foils or environmentally friendly foils. There are different ways to foil and each have benefits depending on the end use and requirements.

Foil blocking (or hot foil stamping) is the process of applying metallic or pigment foil to paper or card, where a heated die is stamped onto the foil.
Metallic foils are often used to highlight a product as premium or category-leading. Foil techniques range from simple and elegant to more elaborate designs. Popular shades include gold and silver, it is also possible to foil other non-metallic colours, although they would be applied with a minimum order run.
Pigment foils are opaque and usually black and white as these contrast well when applied to an uncoated card or metallic materials making them a popular alternative to printing.
