I believe when we did the scratch off thing, we foiled it on our letterpress. Otherwise we did the same thing, print litho, imprint the variable numbers off our Xerox then foil stamp the scratch off foil. Pretty snazzy.

We do train tickets same thing, we use an outside vendor for all the coatings etc..
they print a number on top of the silver coating also
pretty elaborate for a train ticket Foil, UV too
then all the tickets get numbered

I think you have to be really mindful of the silver, we have seen just the tickets rubbing against each other
can rub off the silver if it's not done properly.

yepper, been there done that.
At current place, we silkscreen Scratch off ink on top of the hidden part, using of course special scratch off ink.
You may need to put a UV coat down first to protect the hidden part before applying the scratch off ink in some cases

Here's a web site that actually has good tips for doing this:

Here's a doozy,

Anyone ever had any experience in the realm of printing that silver stuff you see on scratch and win cards?

I've had a request to find out more information of all the details of uv drying etc. etc. etc.

The cards will be printed litho with variable numbers imprinted for numbers, passwords etc. and the owner wants to figure out if the whole thing can be done in house including the silver stuff on top.
