A bit of sheen and glitz can go a long way. Consumers are enthralled by rainbow-like punchy colors, and using a holographic foil or rainbow foils gives the package the ability to change color combinations when viewed at different angles. This makes it a great way to add a pop of color to solid packages while providing a fun and sophisticated flair to product packaging.
