The cover of this issue of Inspire demonstrates how a cold foil technique can be used to create striking effects. Using inline cold foil transfer, the bicycle’s gears and bolts are coloured in silver and subsequently overprinted with a 4c-print. It was printed on Incada Silk 240 g/m², and the sheet was protected with a durable matte foil lamination.
“It was exciting to see how the cold foil technique could be used to create different effects,” says Inspire art director Markus Ljungblom. “We chose an overprinted alternative that literally mirrors different colours from the close environment in quite an interesting way.”
