After a golden weekend for British Olympians, the country is awash with glistening metallic shades of gold, silver and bronze, as businesses and retailers show their support for the world’s largest sporting event.
With a medal count of 16 Gold, 11 Silver and 10 Bronze, the United Kingdom is currently number three on the medal board, and if you would like to join the Olympic ‘gold rush’, now is the perfect time to order your foil blocked carrier bags!
Adding ‘bling’ to your packaging, foil blocking (or hot foiling/foil stamping as it is otherwise known), is a commercial print process, whereby metallic foils are branded directly onto the surface of high quality paper carrier bags to create a stunning effect.
Popular with companies that wish to promote a high quality image, foil blocked carrier bags look and feel luxurious, and so they immediately boost the ‘feel good factor’ one gets when purchasing something expensive, and encourage shoppers to return to your store.
Ideal for corporate gifts, wedding favours, sales and promotional brochures, and presents for every occasion, foil blocked carrier bags look as good as the contents inside, which is perhaps why leading brands across the globe opt for this type of packaging over any other.
Available in gleaming gold, shimmering silver and radiant bronze, foil blocking is a cost-effective way to add dimension to your carrier bags, and when combined with embossing and/or debossing, your bags will have the ‘wow factor’ that encourages consumers to use them over and again.
For optimal results, we use foil blocking on our laminated and un-laminated rope handle paper carrier bags. Litho printed and hand finished, these luxury carrier bags are suitable for all retail outlets, conventions and corporate events, and by adding a 3D metallic element with hot foil, you can be confident your bags will stand out in an Olympic-sized crowd.
