Frequently Asked Questions


When it comes to foil printing, it’s all about the design. While foil printing can add an ergonomic dimension (for example, when paired with die-cutting) the main objective when adding foil to a printed item is to make it stand out. Foil printing adds a creative dimension that oozes luxury and prestige, and shows the customer that your business or organisation is unique and innovative, with an eager eye for detail. 

Order Size

While foil printing is extremely popular for items such as wedding invitations and luxury business stationary (aka, items that don’t tend to be mass-ordered in bulk such as flyers) it can get pretty costly. If you’re ordering a large number of printed items, you’ll want to make sure that your budget covers the extra expense. At Avenue, we’ll always try to offer the best, cost-effective pricing for bulk olders.

Due to the costly dimension, along with the fact that it often takes longer to produce foil printed items, we’d recommend using foil printing services for those special occasions, or if you’re looking to make a stellar impression with clients. When it comes to bulk printed items such as promotional flyers, foil printing would probably be too costly. 


Invitations for special occasions, such as corporate events, are the perfect occasion to make use of foil printing. Invitations tend to be kept as keepsakes, so foil printing would be an investment here. Whether you’re celebrating your a company milestone, launching a new product or sending out save-the-dates for your new offices , foil printing adds that personal, elegant touch.

Business Stationery

Creating your own custom business stationery is another great opportunity to use foil printing. We all remember the scene in American Psycho with the foil business cards, right? You’ll be sure to make a memorable impression on any client with foil printed business stationery. (That being said, you might want to save the foil stationary for your VIP clients and keep a non-foil batch for the unimportant memos.) View our business stationery printing options here. 

Brochure, Catalogue Covers

It’s fair to say that whoever said “don’t judge a book by its cover” had never had a shabby catalogue stuffed through their letterbox. Customers do care about these details, and having a foil print cover is one of the easiest ways to make a great impression on prospective buyers or customers. View our brochure printing services here. Find out how much brochures cost here. 


Social media is one of the great untapped assets when it comes to bagging free advertising for your business. If you send your customers pretty, foil trimmed packaging, you’re more likely to bag some free advertising online and increase customer awareness of your business. Grow your brand without fancy online ads – just gorgeous packaging that reinforces your brand’s identity. Find out more about packaging printing here.

It’s simple – we know printing. With over 20 years’ experience serving clients and customers from all across the UK, you won’t find a printing company that combines both high-calibre customer service and final product quality like us. We’ve worked with small independent businesses to high-profile corporate clients such as Vodafone, J.P. Morgan and even good old Wetherspoons. 

We won’t fob you off with an automated customer service line or extortionate pricing. We’ll assign a dedicated project manager to every order, and keep you updated about your order every step of the way – even if that means making changes. 

We’ve maintained a 5-star review on Google since we took our website online. Here’s what some of our customers have to say about working with Avenue Printing:

“After searching relentlessly & getting quotes of £200+ I was so pleased to be offered 4,000 for just £125 from Avenue Printing. Such a bargain & you wouldn’t be able to tell that from the quality of the leaflets at all! I liased with Jonathan & I honestly could not fault Avenue Printing for a second – very responsive and helpful, super lovely & were absolutely bang on our deadline.”

  • Tiegan

“Second time working with Avenue Printing Ltd and not the last. The result has been perfect both time (an exhibition catalogue and a picture book), advices and guidance are precious and on point with what I’m looking for and my budget. Jonathan is always really quick to answer and thorough.”

  • Suzon

If you’re wanting to go that extra mile and add some extra detailing to your print order, we offer some creative finishes that will be sure to make a great impression on your clients, invitees or customers:

Spot UV Printing

If foil isn’t quite your thing, you can always add a bit of flair to your printed items with spot-UV printing. Spot UV printing involves adding a shiny gloss feature to selective parts of your printed items (such as business names or dates) to give your item that extra luxe feel.

Special Ink

For printed items that are designed to stand out, we can offer using “Special Ink” to give your prints a bold and bright finish. Using smart procurement technology, special ink will make your printed items even more vibrant than our typical, high-quality ink. 

Take a look at our Special Ink page here.

Die Cutting

If you want to show off some flair and creativity, we offer die cutting print services for most of our printed items. Die-cutting involves creating shapes and cut-outs within the print, often as a means of revealing important information or simply encouraging engagement with a promotional product.
