As we step into the new age of industrial modern design, modern metals have stepped into the spotlight to create beautiful designs in interior decorating, architecture, cosmetics, and even, product packaging. From modern industrial to rustic farmhouse, modern metal effects have a wide range of applications. In this age of fierce competition, both online and on retail shelves, it’s important for your packaging design to stand out from the rest. One way to do that is through the use of cold foil printing.
There is so much you can do using cold foil substrates in your packaging. From custom holograms to over printing, you can manipulate cold foil to achieve the jaw-dropping, show-stopping package you’ve always dreamed of.

Designing for Cold Foil Metal Effects Print Mock Ups
It’s important to work with your printer or cold foil provider to create a mock up of your creative packaging design with metal effects. Though beautiful in your design file, sometimes cold foil designs do not look the way we expected when printed – this is why mock ups are necessary. K Laser provides free print mock ups and we will work with you to modify your artwork as it evolves into the creative packaging design you envisioned.
To prepare your artwork for a K Laser’s FREE print mock up service, make an Illustrator file with TWO LAYERS: 1) COLOR GRAPHICS 2) FOIL, specify the color areas where you want foil by using BLACK. Be sure to convert fonts to outlines and embed any images.
