Foil stamping is a cost-effective, eye-catching form of heat transfer printing. Using a heated metal die, color pigments are stamped onto paper and other substrates. It is truly a value-added process. The cost of adding a color with foil stamping is often less expensive than adding an additional color in ink. To add a decorative touch to letterhead, envelopes, book covers, plastic vinyl or other substrates, foil stamping is the way to go!
Foil stamping is also a more environmentally friendly technique because it is a dry process. In other words, there are no solvents, inks, or vapors associated with the process. Foil stamped paper is also recyclable.
