Zazzle and Zazzle designers are excited to announce a new product offering. Sleek foil printing on greeting cards. Foil printing is becoming popular. The foil creates a shimmery shine on the printed designs. Foil printing on greeting cards is a first for Zazzle. I'm sure it won't be long before the product offering for foil printing on other items in the marketplace expands.
The cards are being offered in three sizes: Standard 5x7, Small 4.25x5.5, and Mini 3.5x5.
The different sizes allow for creative ways to use the cards.
• Thank you cards
• Folded stationery note cards
• “Will You Be My Bridesmaid” Cards
• Wedding Programs (YES, GOLD!!!)
• And so much more!
I have been working on making wedding thank you cards. The neat part about these cards, the inside still features a colour print. You can add your wedding photos to the inside of the cards.
The full effect of the foil can be hard to see in online photographs. Zazzle includes different product views including video to help understand how the foil will shimmer in different lights.
I am also going to try out birthday party invitations on the foil cards. I will include a simple foil printing on the front and include the party details on the side of the card.
This golf birthday invitation was designed with silver foil on the front but can be changed to gold foil. I replicated the golf ball picture in colour on the inside.
I'm hoping the golf themed invitations become popular. I feel this is a unique way to invite guests to a party.
Save the dates will also be a popular way to utilize these cards. In this example, I included a photograph of a mountainside view. This photo was taken just outside of Lucerne, Switzerland.
The save the date details are included on the inside of the card.
Foil printing could revolutionize Zazzle's print on demand business. With the ability to order as few as one card at a time, it increases their competitiveness with other printing companies. Zazzle also allows designers and customers to choose between white cardstock, silver, or gold kraft paper.
It's an exciting time to be a Zazzle designer.
