Foil printing is one of our most popular services for business cards and postcards. With so many colors and add-ons available, it's a great way to add some creative flair to your branding (and hellooooo did you see our new colors?). But also, what the heck are we talking about when we say we need separate foil files?
We know not everyone is a graphic designer, and sometimes setting up files for printing can be super confusing. This quick guide creates a visual for setting up files for foil printing properly.
Depending on how many sides you want your foil to print, we will either need 3 files, or 4 files: one file for both your front and back, and a file that notes what you want foil stamped.
Make sure the elements you want foil stamped are taken out of your front and back files completely. These need to be on separate files, and in 100% K (black).
Upload or email your files as hi-res PDFs, and the end result will be beautiful, premium quality foil stamped cards. We went with the holographic for ours!
If you need help with set up, our team is always willing to help. Email us with your request and our design team will work with you on getting the elements you need to create stellar cards.
When we first introduced holographic sticker printing over a year ago, we knew that our clients would love it. For months, we looked and tested for the right vinyl that would be high-quality, vibrant, and affordable. Shortly after our launch, we introduced it to the masses and we've been shipping thousands and thousands of custom holographic stickers across the world ever since!
Holographic stickers are such a fun way to market your brand, band, or business. These rainbow reflective stickers change vibrancy in different light and will make your designs unforgettable (and isn't that what we all want anyway?). Full CMYK printing is available, and we even have the capability of printing white.
We also offer holographic printing on roll labels or sticker sheets, perfect for your packaging needs. All vinyl stickers are printed on a 6mil premium vinyl (that's twice as thick as other online retailers!) and coated with a UV gloss that will protect the sticker from standard elements for 3-5 years.
Our team recently handpicked some brand new foil colors -- available on premium foil business cards and die cut business cards. We know how important creativity and standing out is, and these are designed to do just that! Create some beautiful, cosmic business cards that will wow 'em. After all, your business card is an extension of yourself.
Something we have wanted to do for a long time is make our social channels more about community and y’all! Product shots (and our hands in them) are super fun, but at the end of the day this business was built on collaborative magic. So we’re starting #TPbehindthebrand on Instagram (and will repost here) to introduce you to our amazing clients and their stories. Read below to meet Chris Fafalios of I Love Enamel Pins.
Hey there! My name is Chris Fafalios, and for the past 22 years of my life, I have made music in the band Punchline. Although writing songs and playing my electric bass has been my passion for most of my life, I enjoy all forms of creative expression. One of the things that I REALLY enjoy is drawing cartoons, and a few years back, I taught myself how to do some basic animation by attending classes at the old YOUTUBE UNIVERSITY (haha!) I cut up audio that I found on the internet, and created videos of myself talking on the phone to a whole bunch of celebrities. Some of these videos slightly caught on, which led to being hired to do work for some really cool bands (such as Weezer, Bowling For Soup, and Anti-Flag).
It was around this time that I saw Susannah’s posts about a company she worked for, and one of the things they made was ENAMEL PINS. I’d always wanted to start my own collection of custom pins, but I didn’t know how to go about it. She helped me every step of the way, and the quality of the pins were OUT OF THIS WORLD. I was so excited to hear when she started Tower Press, and I wouldn’t even CONSIDER going anywhere else with my business. I now have an Etsy shop (ILoveEnamelPins.com) and Instagram @iloveenamelpins where I have over 50 designs of pins, all of which would not exist without the help of Susannah and Tower Press.
Having this small business has been such a fun and rewarding experience, and I’m now fully addicted to designing pins and adding them to my store. In fact, I’m literally placing another order as I send this paragraph. If you’ve ever considered bringing your creations to life, I can’t recommend Tower Press highly enough!
Follow along on Chris' journey via Instagram. We've been so thrilled to work with him on custom enamel pins and pin back cards. Browse our website for tons of custom printing and design options, we look forward to featuring YOU next!

Something we have wanted to do for a long time is make our social channels and blog is highlight more of our community and y’all! Product shots (and our hands in them) are super fun but at the end of the day this business was built on collaborative magic. So we’re starting #TPbehindthebrand on Instagram (and we'll repost here) to introduce you to our amazing clients and their stories. Read below to meet Grit and Golden.
I’m MacKenzie, owner and jewelry designer of Grit & Golden. I started G&G a little over two years ago after taking a beginner bench jewelry course. I immediately fell in love with the craft and being able to create quality jewelry that mixed my tomboy style, vintage southwestern design, and a touch of femininity. Today, all of my pieces are handcrafted out of my Southern California studio.
Not only do I love making jewelry, I love being a business owner. From day one I knew I wanted G&G to be a little more than jewelry, I wanted it to be a vibe and a memorable brand. However, that part was always a struggle for me and that’s where Tower Press came in!
I found Tower Press on Instagram when they were first starting up and I knew right away they were a company I wanted to work with. Since then, Tower Press has totally helped take my business to the next level. They've made me business cards, many holographic stickers (customers literally ask me for these), a logo stamp, and a few months ago, Jessie created a full branding package for G&G. The branding package was a huge investment for me, but completely worth every penny. I am always impressed with the quality and design that these women strive for, and I feel like I’m talking to my best friends when discussing projects.
The Tower Press women continue to make my little business feel like a million bucks and I love being able to support a fellow female owned business.
There's never a "one size fits all" when it comes to small business. There are many different stages over many spans of time, so there's no reason why one type of branding package should exist! Maybe you just need a logo to get things off the ground, or maybe you're ready to deep dive into the whole shebang. Or, maybe you just need a little updating on what you already have!
Whatever the case, we've created four different custom graphic design and branding packages that cover whatever stage of business you're in:
To get started, schedule your complimentary consultation! We can't wait to learn all about you and your business.
If you don't need branding, we offer graphic design services a la carte as well:
Our Services Include:
Business Card Design Postcard Design Spot Illustrations Logo Design Brochure Design Social Media Icons Label Design Enamel Pin Design Sticker Design Package Design Newsletter / Letterhead Rubber Stamp Design Signage & More!
Everything our team designs is 100% custom and made just for you. We love taking the time to get to know your brand, and during the consultation phase we'll look at mood boards, your socials (and even your competition) to get a better visual on your needs.
