Foil Hot Stamping is a letter-press technique. A die is made of metal, usually magnesium or copper. Using etching, the image is transferred onto the metal surface, which is warmed to 100-150 degrees C, using strong pressure. The pressure is applied to the stamping foil while the metallic pigment adheres to the substrait.

Hot foil stamping is the only technique in printing which perfectly imitates gold, silver and metallic colors. Stamping is a dry technique and does not require drying.
It is possible to stamp on print, and also to stamp before printing, thereby obtaining metallic effects of changing hues. Stamping is also used for security printing, by using holographic foil.
We run stamping machines in sizes from business card size to 102x72.
