Foil Stamping

Description:

Foil stamping is the application of a thin metallic or pigmented foil using a metal die. The die is heated and pressured onto the foil and paper separating the foil in the covered area and adhering it to the stock.

Benefits:

  • Wide selection of foils including: metallic, matte, holographic, clear, opaque, pastelle
  • Extremely uniform coverage
  • May be combined with other processes
  • Will emboss and deboss nicely
  • Can foil stamp all types of flat objects

Things to consider:

  • Although most foils are laser compatible, they are not guaranteed
  • A test is highly recommended
  • Foils have a tendency to fill when elements are close together
