Design Trend // Gold Foil - Is it here to stay?


We've been seeing gold foil ALL OVER lately! It seems to be all the rage on design blogs. We've even spotted it on clothing and housewares in our most recent trip to Target. (oh Target.... how we love you!) Gold foil is luxurious, it's sexy, it's modern, and it's a little funky too! No wonder it's so popular! Below are a few of our favorite gold foil finds on the internet!

We've been inspired and thought we better join the fun and use the new gold foil love on a few of our products here at The Modern Collective! Of course, in our Modern Collective fashion, we simplified the trend and incorporated the gold foil in two of our 2013 Grad Card designs! The Zoey and Taylor grad announcements are oh so trendy! :)


So, what do you think... is gold foil here to stay?


  • Just found your site, super excited! Thanks so much for the gold foil how to video – its exactly what I needed for a project I’m working on!

  • Quick question: How do/can you print the gold leaf onto paper? Do you need a special printer?

  • Like everyone else I am way into that gold accenting.

  • I absolutely love the Taylor and Zoey cards. They are up there as possibly my favorite Modern Collective design to date! I think the gold accents are fabulous!
