What is foil stamping?
Foil stamping is a special kind of printing procedure where heat, pressure, and a metallic paper (foil) is used to create different shiny designs and graphics on various materials, this gives the stamped design a shiny and incredible look.
Foil stamping is also referred to as hot stamping (because it utilizes heat), foil printing, dry stamping, and leaf stamping.
This type of printing does not use any sort of ink. It is a dry stamping process where ink, some sort of magnetism, or plates are not used to print letters and pictures as is used in traditional printing methods. In place of all these things, foil stamping uses dies or carved metal plates, heat, and foil in the stamping process.
During the foil stamping process, the die or the sculpted metal plate comes in contact with the foil and transfers a thin layer of the foil film onto the intended surface. As the metal plate is heated, the foil sticks to the surface only in the design of the plate and in the required areas with the desired imprint.
It is a tedious process but the finished product is always worthwhile.
