Holographic papers, or hologram papers, are smooth and shiny papers that have 3D holographic effects. The effects are created by applying a thin layer of shiny metal or reflective plastic and then embossing to form a relief image. The light is reflected and diffracted, due to the millions of tiny grooves and valleys created by the embossing, resulting in the signature rainbow of colours that sparkle from the surface.
Holographic papers are often used for die cutting, matting or as a base for cards. They’re a great alternative to glitter or mirror card stock.
