Foil stamp back to back.

Just wondering if anyone has experienced any problem foil stamping a business card where the foils line up front to back. Because it's a heat stamp process, I'm wondering if the application to one side will ruin the foil on the opposite side. (ie peeling may occur) I'm doing this on a 120 lb C paper so I'm not sure if I need to be concerned or not. The paper is pretty thick.
I hate to state the obvious, but did you ask your printer?
i don't think you can foil stamp both sides... ?
but yeah ask your printer.
I did ask printer. they said: good question, not sure. So we are proceeding and will find out what happens.
- um. i'd find a printer who doesn't experiment at your expense.horton
- they're a good printer. they just haven't run into the scenario. talked to another printer that I trust as well and they said no problemMrNibs
You may want to consider stamping 2 pieces and mounting together to net the original weight of the stock.
Yeah, duplex is the way to go to be safe!
Just got back from press check on this and the foil back to back held up fine.
thx. good to know.
You can foil stamp both sides, my business cards have two on the front, one on the back.
They are 130lb, I think, and you can still see the indent from the opposite side (I asked my printer to hit the next set of cards softer and that helped a lot).
They look great, though.
