Foil Stamping – A Simple Process

A Simple Process

The basic concept behind hot foil stamping is simple. A die is mounted and heated. After the foil is positioned above the material to be imprinted, a combination of heat, dwell time and pressure compresses the paper fibers, covering it with any of a variety of foils. Foil stamping presses come in sizes from small, hand operated table models (1″ x 3″) to over 30″. Whether small or large, three facets of operation come into play:

  • Heat
  • Pressure
  • Dwell Time
