Re: [BKARTS] also looking for machine-less gold stamping



I have recently seen some quite effective screenprinted faux gold foil. It was a gold vinyl ink and did a great job of looking like foiling.

With photo screenprinting you have no limitations and whatever you can imagine up can be screened straight on the book.

It is another process that may not be what you're looking for. Though I do know that many screenprinting businesses are helpful in getting screens and artwork prepped etc.. Must be cheaper than foiling and anyone can screenprint with a little practice.
