Have you ever imagined that your customers will hold on to your boxes long before they’ve used the product inside? And that they’ll do that just because the box looks so good? Well, you can do that with metallic paper.
Metallic paper is a white paper that’s been treated with a silver foil substrate. When we print any color on top of the silver substrate, all the colors have a metallic look. It’s like having your boxes wrapped in foil, but there is no foil involved.
Metallic Paper = Endless Design Possibilities
In a previous blog post, we’ve highlighted the difference between metallic boxes and boxes with foil stamping.
In short, the main advantage of printing on metallic paper is that you can have the look of foil stamping, but in multiple colors AND without using a custom die (which involves an extra cost).
On metallic boxes, all colors can shine at once. More so, you can “block out” areas that you don’t want to shine and design your box in so many different ways.
Another huge benefit of printing on metallic paper is that you can have very fine details printed. With foil stamping, because it uses a press, the foil expands under the heat and pressure, so you won’t get 100% smooth edges. But printing metallic boxes works like any other boxes, which means our high-quality digital printing presses will give you that immaculate sharpness you’re looking for.
Before we jump to the metallic boxes gallery, in the video below Eric explains metallic boxes and the process behind:
