Custom silver metallic ink printing is great when you want your printing to shine and reflect light. This can be achieved with metallic silver ink. When the metallic ink dries, these particles come to the surface, and then shine when exposed to light.
The best result of custom silver metallic printing comes when you use large areas of silver metallic ink on un-coated sheets. The coated sheets, on the other hand, absorb the metallic particles, so you do not get the desired level of reflection on the final print. So for best results, when printing metallic business cards, or flyers, you should opt for un-coated paper.
While metallic ink is eye-catching to be sure, we recommend our full color foil process for an even flashier printing result; it is one of our newest products and has shown to be a stunning success as an alternative to your metallic ink orders. Full color foil adds a "sparkle" to a wide range of CMYK colors, delivering a truly competitive advantage.
If your project absolutely requires the use of metallic ink and full color foil printing just won't do, please fill out the custom quote form and we'll be happy to get your project rolling. Otherwise, try our full color foil printing options above.
