What Colors Can We Foil

Here at Aura Print, we pride ourselves on offering you the very best choice of metallic foil printing colors . With an ever-growing swatch of the highest standard Kurz foil colors, we continue to grow, research, and fine-tune new foils, so we're always at the forefront of metallic print.

Our Current Metallic Foiling Options Consist Of:

Rose Gold Foil

 rose gold

Tone: Our rose gold is pale in tone sitting more towards the warm end of the scale rather than a harsh pink or purple — a very natural colorful foil that has a healthy glow when under harsh lighting making it easy to read.

Suitable uses: Rose gold is a very versatile color, and we see it used a lot for beauty products, lavish invites and lifestyle businesses.

Gold Foil


Tone: Many metallic gold foils tend to be dull and unsaturated. We’re delighted to say our gold-colored foil is a much warmer and more realistic gold hue with legible golden shades when not reflecting, yet a very inviting liquid gold under the light that you’d think is real gold.

Suitable uses: We know how to do gold foil printing so that it has a very inviting charm to it, we tend to recommend this to customers who want to start a friendly dialogue with their respective clients. It is very popular for invitations, classy product tags, and not surprisingly, many small bespoke businesses.

Copper Foil


Tone: Similar to our gold foil, our metallic copper foil has a very cozy tone, perfect for foil art prints. Think about the shades put out by candlelight in a wood cabin. Snug, toasty casts of orange under the sun and an indulgent brown when not. Sounds dreamy right?

Suitable uses: If your print revolves around a rustic, simple theme then copper is a fantastic choice. It works very well when combined with darker shades such as racing green or burgundy. Great for business cards and popular on restaurant menus.

Silver Foil


Tone: Our shimmering silver foil is nothing short of elegant and radiant. It’s incredibly reflective and under direct light will mirror the hue coming at it with vigour. Silver leans more towards the cooler end of the spectrum and is excellent if you want a clean look.

Suitable uses: We see silver used a lot of business cards for professionals such as prestige car dealers, dentists, and law representatives. It works very well when used with a dark contrasting background such as black or navy.

Red Foil


Tone: Our metallic red is dramatically vivid and hard to miss. It's neither warm nor cold and sits in the middle with a high level of saturation. With no light it appears as a deep oxblood red and in well-lit environments is a vivid ruby that jumps off the paper.

Suitable uses: Red is another popular choice for business cards and is a familiar choice for construction, entertainment, and seasonal businesses. It’s also embraced as a go-to option for greeting cards.

Blue foil


Tone: Akin to the colour shifts of red, our metallic blue foil is chameleon in its shades. It can shift from an amazing deep-sea blue when not in direct light to an inspiring and trust-evoking royal blue when reflecting direct light.

Suitable uses: Blue is one of our rarer choices of foil, but we love it when it's time to put it on our machine. We’ve done everything from business cards for legal advisers to window cleaners. Blue foil print is an excellent choice for flyers If your business involves, air, water, or to portray an element of trust.

Green Foil


Tone: Our green foil leans more towards a calm tone, but it’s got an incredible emerald green shine that’s deep and vivid. When dancing in the light, it can change from deep forest green to bright olive in an instant.

Suitable uses: Green has connotations with nature, health and youth but other applications can be for holiday greetings cards. It’s hard to put green down for a specific product as it’s versatile but a few examples are for a yoga instructor business card, landscape workers, and various styles of menu.

Pink Foil


Tone: Similar to rose gold, our pink foil is a little less in your face and more of a dusty pink shade than a hot pink. It has a great shine and its colour shifts from a deeper pink in low light to an understated gentle pink under light. If you’re looking for a foil other than rose gold, this is a good choice.

Suitable uses: Pink foil lends itself more to feminine professions and much like rose gold we see it used a lot in the beauty, health, hair, and fitness fields.

Purple Foil


Tone: We certainly can’t downplay how vivid and saturated this color is. It has a great vibrancy and its color shifts from a deep purple in low light to a bright hot pink/purple under light. If you’re looking to stand out, this is a great option.

Suitable uses: Purple foil lends itself more to feminine professions but is equally loud enough to stand out on dark backgrounds making it also appeal to gothic-based businesses.

Black Chrome Foil

black chrome

Tone: In short, it's a black chrome look. It has subtle blue and purple hues and a slight pearlescence. Under bright light, it can look silver and slowly fade to black in the shadows.

Suitable uses: Black chrome works well on any design. We've seen people use it on black card for a black-on-black look at it looks very professional. This would be an excellent choice for motor companies and packaging stickers for niché, quirky businesses.

Holographic Foil


Tone: Every color of the rainbow, with 3D mysticism. It diffuses light in different colors depending on what angle you look at it. In one direction it can look like silver with blue/purple tones and in another with yellow and red.

Suitable uses: We see holo printing used a lot in tatoo parlour designs along with more modern approaches to business cards. It has a bit of a 90s vibe which is popular with younger generations and tech companies.
