If you want a shiny, more metallic look to the printing then opt for foil printing. This is when a foil is transferred by heat onto the cocktail napkins. You can choose from metallic foils such as gold or silver, glossy foils like blue, green, red, or even matte colored foils.

Cheap Handmade DIY Embossing

As you see around this site, one design option that is highly recommended is getting a hand crank embosser made. These cost between $40-$100 (depending on the size and complexity of the design). The emboss design could be something decorative like flowers or birds, or it could be something more personal like a monogram or the date of the wedding. These hand embossers can be used to create a design on a napkin. They can also be used to emboss wedding invitations, programs, thank you cards, and a whole host of other items.
