Sequential Foil Numbering

Sequential Hot Foil Numbering Stamp Silver Gold Kickstarter Reward

Unlike traditional foil stamping, sequential foil numbering is done with a special press that gives each individual piece of your run a unique number.

Sequential foil numbering is a great addition to Kickstarter / crowdfunded projects, and it can also be done on a small part of the run (say just 100 copies out of 500) to make those copies extra special.

Sequential numbering has certain restrictions: because it is done with a special machine, the size and font of the numbering cannot be changed, and there will always be 6 numbers.

Sequential Foil Numbering Stamp File Guide

Sequential Foil Numbering File Placement:

Sequential foil numbering can be placed within 10cm (3.93 inches) of the outside edge.  Please see the guide above for a visual example of where you can place your numbers. We can print your numbers anywhere in the blue area. Also note we aren’t able to print numbers on the outer edge of the book (0.2 inches). This is represented in white.

The size of PrintNinja’s foil numbering is 3/8 inch in height and 1 inch in width.
