What is the difference between digital foil and foil stamping?
Digital foil is adhered to the printed text directly on the cover paper in gold and copper for the Softcover product. A UV Gloss layer is then applied to give the foil a textured, embossed effect. Digital foil is now available on the dust jacket of the original Hardcover Photo Book, the cover of the Color Series Photo Book, and the cover of the Softcover Photo Book.
Foil stamping is a traditional method, which is different from digital foil. Each letter is de-bossed with pressured heat into the fabric cover and spine, resulting in an elegantly textured finish. Foil stamping is available in the Layflat Photo Album, Wedding Layflat Photo Album, Signature Layflat Photo Album, Wedding Guest Book, and the Everday Photo Book. Foil stamping is not available on the linen of the Hardcover Photo Books.
