For foil printing, two costs are required.

Print Plate: is required to set-up your job. This is created by taking your artwork and getting it etched into a metal plate (recyclable magnesium). This process can take a few days (depending on season) and allows us to stamp your logo onto the box using the foil of your choice. This is a one-off cost, unless you require multiple plates per design/size. The cost is dependant on the area size of the design, which will be mocked up and sent to you for approval. Please note; because this is a physical plate, size or design changes are not possible once made. A secondary plate would be required for additional sizes or designs. We retain your plate/s on premises.

Print Run: this is the charge per box being hand-printed. This cost will be required for every printed item/job. The cost is dependant on the range or product type. Please note; this does not include the cost of the box, the set-up cost nor delivery.

Artwork & Mock-ups: We offer 2 digital versions for every mock-up you will be sent via email for free (Initial mock-up + 1 amend). Any amends thereafter to the same product would have a chargeable fee of £5 per mock-up. Please be vigilant and ask any questions prior to proceeding to mock-up stage. If you wish to see, for example, 5 colours on 1 product, our artworker can include these within the same mockup as a rough guide, which would count as one mock-up, not 5. (This is only applicable for the initial mockup, not the amend). Example; If you are looking to have 5 products printed, you will be offered 2 mockups per products (maximum of 10) for free. Should you wish to see further mock-ups after your initial artwork and amendment has been made, you will then be reminded of the further charges and will need to settle the payment before any further artwork commences.

* Please note; each foil has its own personality. Take matt black for example, he's often down in the dumps. Sometimes he likes recycled boards, and sometimes he doesn't. Best ask our skilled team and they can provide the best advice for your chosen product and brand. Unfortunately, we are unable to colour match foils/boxes to Pantone references.

Your Details

Our printing department will aim to get back to you within 24 hours with the next step to ordering your printed boxes. Please get in touch to find out our current lead time.


What if I don't have a design or logo?
We have an in-house design team who can work with you to create what you're looking for and make it print-ready. We charge £20 per half an hour for design work, but once created, all files will be sent to you for future use.
Will the print smudge?
The beauty about foils is that they don't behave like inks. They will not smudge once printed.
Are the boxes still recyclable after being printed?
The answer is yes! Due to the very small percentage of foil used on the boxes, the particles become insignificant during the recycling process so they are still completely recyclable. Please check box stats prior to ordering. Still have questions? Get in touch on [email protected] or 01825 725 076 Or fill in the form below to start your printing journey!
