8.5 X 11 Spot Color Letterheads With Foil- Print on 1 Side

With foil on spot color letterhead, you receive all the advantages of spot color printing, with the added distinction of foil.

On letterhead, the foil can be placed at either the top of the letterhead, or the bottom of the letterhead. Specify one foil color from our 17 standard colors. (For other design options, and other colors of foil, please request a custom quote.)

For letterhead using foil in combination with ink, you may also specify up to two ink colors (without bleeds) from our 18 standard colors, or upgrade to other PMS ink(s) (Fluorescent Inks not available).

The ink may print as flat or raised (thermography). However, if your customer will print on this stationery using a laser printer or a photocopier, you MUST select Laser Safe printing. This is a method of printing that prevents the thermography from melting in the high heat of a laser printer or copier, which can damage both the letterhead and the drum of the equipment. For Laser Safe printing, add $15/1000 (minimum $15).

Note that foil is not recommended for fine details. When choosing foil, the font sizes you use for text should be large enough to avoid plugging.

Choose from our many paper stock options, or supply your stock to us (see details under "Paper Stocks" below).

When letterhead prints in two ink colors that touch or are within 1/8" of each other, this constitutes close registration. (Close registration also applies if two colors are designed to line up along one or more directions.) 

And when you combine foil with ink, your design may also contain critical registration (when foil touches the ink and/or registers with the ink in any way). For example, if two lines of foil are designed to be evenly spaced between a line of ink, this is considered critical registration - the line of ink must be kept perfectly centered between the foil.
