Typically, metallic ink, foil stamping, or spot UV are effects that are applied either to your game box or to your game cards. Metallic ink is used to highlight text or other intricate artistic areas, while foil stamping is used to highlight larger, broad areas and geometric shapes. For cards, you can apply metallic ink or foil stamping to all the cards in your game, or just to a subset, although it is more cost effective on a per-card basis to apply metallic ink or foil stamping to the entire deck. Spot UV is another way to highlight broader shapes on a box.
