What is Foil Hot Stamping?
Foil hot stamping is a method of relief printing. The pre-dried ink or foils transfer by machine to a surface at high temperatures. First, the press heats up and the product to be stamped is placed underneath. A roll with colorful foil is positioned between the two. Finally, the foil presses down to the product resulting in a metallic design in your company’s graphics. Everything from your company’s logo to a cool pattern or graphic can transfer onto your packaging of choice. The foil hot stamping method can include a wide variety of colors and foils to choose from.
The hot stamping process is a popular treatment customers mainly use on paper shopping bags, and boxes.
