Greeting cards is one of our founding market sectors taking us back to the gold beating days in London in the late 1700’s. Adding glamour in gold to cards and invites demonstrating the importance of an occasion or just the wealth and opulence of an individual or a company. These days cards remain big business and are still regarded as an important marker for a special day.

At API Foilmakers we have a finish for all requirements, from very glossy metallics to matts, satins and ultra matt effects and in a range of metallic colours to suit every need. Alternatively using our graphical pigment grades for coding and marking products and packaging.
