varnish vs. foil

I’ve got a client who’s requesting their logo be shiny, as a contrast to the uncoated paper (Crane’s kid finish) that I’m printing their business cards on. I’m thinking he probably wants foil stamping, but is there a varnish or any other ink that might work on press instead?

There’s another choice too - using one of the foils that sticks with a little general heat to ink or copier toner… Caslon in the UK have a line in such things - and probably others. It’d depend a bit on the run length - but these mean that you can foil just a handful, when it really wouldn’t be worth making a block for hot foiling.
