Look at that little beauty, you think to yourself, it’s got gold on it, and it’s shiny. What is this wonderful, beautiful creation? That is foil wedding invitations, my friends. There’s something wonderfully glamorous about foil printing. You’ve most likely seen gold foil stamps, and what’s more glamorous than glittering gold? From wedding invitations online to business cards, foil stamping will add flair to any stationery (although we do think it looks pretty great on wedding invitations in particular!).
