Get the Word Out Brilliantly With Metallic Flyer Printing

Metallic ink printing beautifully highlights all the important elements of your flyers. Hand them out at networking events, trade shows, restaurants, spas or salons and watch people stop and take notice.

How Are Metallic Flyers Printed?

With the metallic printing process, silver foil is applied under CMYK ink to achieve the metallic effect. This makes the metallic accents glisten when it catches the light.

This printing process produces limitless metallic colors. It can even create metallic gradients for a distinctive look and feel that no other finish can do.

Our metallic flyers are your best bet for spreading the word on your business around town.

Here’s why:

  • Metallic flyers are printed on heavyweight 16 pt. glossy cardstock that lasts longer.
