We’re delighted to introduce you to another of our amazing District Sponsors – Foilco – who have been with us on our festival journey for months. No longer a designers best-kept-secret, this great company is fast becoming synonymous with encouraging creativity and supporting regional events.
Foilco (formed in 1987) is a family run business with a central approach to be always strongly service led. With this ethos the company has evolved into a global supplier of stamping foils for all types of applications. We have been servicing the graphics industry for over 30 years and offer the largest range of hot stamping foils, across all sectors of applications.
Our company is built around service to the customer. Our speed of response to orders and sample requests ensures that you meet the just in time requirements of today’s print industry. The large majority of orders for hot and cold foils are supplied directly from stock.
We work closely with designers and creatives around concepts and themes, manufacturing foils to compliment your production and your choice of substrates. We have the ability to match to Pantones in gloss and matt pigments as well as metallic colours. Foils can be manufactured with repeat logos, graphics, colour shifts and configuration. From expert advice to full testing and sampling, we will work directly with you to find the best compatible foil grades for your project/application.
Designers need confidence in stamping foils and the deliverables. Historically they have been at least one step removed and at the mercy of the printer to advise on availability and functionality. This distance can and has often resulted in the design of the foil colour being compromised. If we converse directly with the design community then it can only be to the benefit of the education process and in the enhancement of decorative packaging overall.
