Foil Stamping & Decorative Finishing Options for Boxes
What draws you to a package? Is it the design, the contents… Maybe the shiny foil stamping on top?
Ah-ha! We understand completely.
It’s an instinct, maybe. Like raccoons, crows, and Tamatoa from “Moana,” humans are drawn to shiny things. Luckily, at Sunrise Packaging, we have no shortage of shiny embellishments to add to your custom packaging project.
But, like with most decorative elements, it’s best to exercise moderation. A little bit can go a long way. Here are a few of the options you can think about using in your next unique packaging collaboration with us. Follow us on Instagram to see our latest examples of some of these printing options.
Learn More About Foil Stamping & Printing Options
- Foil Stamping
Foil stamping is the application of pigment or metallic foil, often gold or silver, to paper where a heated die is stamped onto the foil, making it adhere to the surface leaving the design of the die on the paper.
- Print Coatings
With a print coating, you protect your graphics from exposure to moisture, extreme temperatures, and the everyday effects of repetitive use.
An image such as a logo, a title, or other design is heat-pressed into the surface of the paper with a heated die, creating depressions rather than raised impressions as in embossing.
Embossing involves the creation of an impression by placing the dies in contact with the stock under high pressure. Embossing will give your packaging a unique look and texture.
- Screen Printing
Silk screening (Screen Printing) is a technique where the printer uses woven mesh to support an ink-blocking stencil.
What’s Your Favorite Decorative Element?

Some elements can be combined, others can be done in varying colors for maximum impact, or add gravitas in a monochromatic approach. Honestly? It depends on the customer and the packaging.
