Foil Stamping / Hot Stamping
Hot stamping, or foil stamping, is a print-finishing method in which foils are transferred to a surface at high temperatures.
Foil stamping is when a die is mounted and heated, with the product to be stamped, placed beneath it. A roll-leaf carrier is inserted between the two, and the die presses down through it. The foil used is impressed into the surface of the product, the pressure and heat cause the relevant sections of the foil to become detached from the carrier material and become bonded with the printed or plain surface. Foil can also be used in combination with Embossing/debossing.
