[Need Advice!] "Rebel/Empire" Original Trilogy Box Set

So, I’m going for a minimalist look on the outside, and then the inside will be Poster art from the original trilogy. I didn’t want to do the same “Just use darth vader’s face” that everyone else does, so I used the Rebel Alliance symbol on the front, and the Galactic Empire symbol on the back.

Here’s a Work in Progress cover
The front cover

WHAT I NEED HELP WITH:
This is going to be a Gatefold Digipak, and I want to know how I can make the gold and silver parts actually shine gold and silver. How does that work? Is there a special type of cardboard I need to buy? A special type of ink? Will I have to make it part normal cardboard and part foil stuff? Will it be expensive?

There may be types of foil sticker stuff you could put on there to make it shiny.

thanks, detola. I think I’ll go with the Lamination technique, even if I may need to use an Iron. The black toner won’t stick out like a sore thumb if the foil starts to come off.
