Foil Paper

A special type of paper stock that has a foil finish. Foil paper can be printed on (using UV inks) and then can be used for book casewraps, box wraps, etc. to achieve a shiny foil quality beneath the printing (based on how the print files are set up and whether an opaque white base color is applied to all or part of the printed area). The most common foil paper is silver, but other stocks are available upon request.
