As Foilco turns 30 years old we thought it was a great opportunity to celebrate, while nostalgically look back and question what we have learnt in this time. As we work with creatives across the globe, we thought it was a good idea to perhaps ask them what advice they would give themselves if they could go back to when they were starting out. The answers we received were considerate, informative and powerful messages. So we wanted to share them with you.
As we grow as a company it’s important for us to keep the integrities in place. The hands on, team effort approach will still remain our grounding as we grow. I think our competitors have had to move over and give us some room in recent years. The team are a friendly bunch and have an open house policy. We have full test facilities on site to identify the best grade of foil to go with the chosen substrate and to give the client a visual advantage of their concept. We can help with urgent requirements for realisation with any of our foils and to share our knowledge of the processes. We can also recommend machinery that’s out there and trade printers and finishers in your location that will give you the correct response suited to your enquiry.
To commemorate Foilco turning we produced a limited edition book printed by Pressision and using GF Smith papers throughout, plus a set of lovingly produced postcards. The book features all the quotes from the contributors as well as showcasing our range of foils. However also creating this website seemed like such a great chance to spread the word further. We are grateful to all those that contributed to this collection of messages, quotes and pearls of wisdom.
