Pantone of the Year 2023

The 2023 Pantone of the year is here and this time it’s Viva Magenta 18-1750, a vibrant red which we have the perfect foil matches for.

First is our Boudoir Sheen Red (6717), our closest match to Viva Magenta. Available in our SH grade, Boudoir is perfect for a wide range of materials such as labels, packaging, greeting cards and gift wrap.

Next is our Barbera Gloss Red (756), a slightly darker option but still a very close match. Available in our GPL grade, this is a fantastic foil for a wide range of coated boards, leather, and acrylic.

Finally, our Cheeky Bright Pink (6741). A little on the pinker side, but we have chosen this foil to give you as many options as possible.  Available in our CGW grade, this foil is perfect for textured and embossing dies and works well on book cloth, leather and various paper and boards.

This selection of foils is just scratching the surface of the red foils that we offer, and you can view the full range by clicking here.
