Hot Stamping Foils Make Decorative Marking Easy

We've covered the basics of hot stamping before, but in case you need a refresher:

Hot stamping is a flexible process allowing the user to mark various materials including most plastics, rubber, leather, fabrics, and paper.
Hot stamping is great because it is a relatively clean process and eliminates the need for inks and other messy consumables.  Hot stamping is an attractive solution for decorative marking because it is a simple, robust, and reliable process.  Load a metal die into the hot stamping press, add a swatch or roll of hot stamping foil, fixture your part, and make your mark.

Hot stamping foils are used for a variety of decorative printing purposes like printing on leather goods, greeting cards, ribbons, publishing, cosmetic packaging, commercial printing, and labels. Hot stamping foils have five properties that make them ideal for this wide range of decorative printing:

  • Consistency
  • Abrasion resistance
  • Adhesion
  • Sharp detail
  • Brightness

Pigmented and Metallic foils are great for the professional designer as well as the hobbyist working out of their home. The wide range of options for color and finish, coupled with great chemical and abrasion resistance, make hot stamping an attractive solution for professional and durable book covers and bindings, greeting cards, stationery, cosmetics, labels and more.
