Enhance Your Print & Packaging with Effects

As much as we love it, print finishing shouldn’t just be about flat foiling. That’s why we’ve got several other effects available to help improve the look and feel of your print and packaging. But what are they?

Securigrafix

Securigrafix

Unique to Blockfoil, Securigrafix creates a cost-effective security solution. It was primarily designed to prevent counterfeiting but it can also visually enhance the eventual look of the product.

Multi-Level Embossing

Fluted Foiling

Fluted Foiling

Fluted foiling is similar to flat foiling but it allows an image to be foiled and embossed in a single application.
