    Yes, the silver foil is not actually super precise. I absolutely would not try to utilize it for diminutive text. Your merely additional alternative is metallic spot colors, additional than it's normally additional effectual on larger areas. The customary metallic silver is Pantone 877C. As I encompass worked in the design and print industry for regarding 10 years, I encompass had silver foil done on cards in the past (text and logo) and it looked exceptional, as long as your text is not too excellent. I recommend that you print your blue ( offset ) then matt celloglaze and encompass the foil stamped in excess of the cello, it determine to give the impression of being excellent.
