Hot foil stamping machines are used as a printing method in which pre-dried ink or foils are transferred at high temperatures to a surface. In foil stamping, the sculpted metal plate or die comes into contact with the foil and transfers a layer of thin foil film onto the surface area. When the metal plate get hot, the foil begins to stick to the foil surface in the specific design of the foil plate and where the desired print is required.
Foil stamping is a unique and creative printing procedure type where the use of metallic paper (foil), heat and pressure can create beautiful designs and graphic texts on various materials. Foil stamping gives a shiny and fancy appearance when done correctly.
Foil stamping is also known as foil printing, leaf stamping, dry stamping and hot stamping. Today there is a variety of foil stamping machines on the market, in different sizes. When it comes to purchasing a foil stamping machine, there are a few things to keep in mind, such as the volumes you’re planning to stamp, the material which you would like to stamp and the size of the machinery.
