Tags: hot stamping foil
Blog Entry: The hot stamping foil is the process used to print hot foil labels or hot stamp labels, among other products. It may sometimes be referred to as hot stamping or foil stamping and is a fantastic way of producing high-quality luxury labels. The process involves the use of a hot stamping machine, where a die is heated and the product to be stamped is placed below it. The die is then pressed through a metallized or painted roll leaf carrier and the dry paint or foil is impressed into the surface of the product, in this case a label. Because the materials involved are dry, hot foil stamping is a non-polluting process. The origins of Hot Foil Stamping date way back to the 1890's, when it was used on leather and paper. Today it is more frequently used on plastic, and of course, to create labels! Typical Applications of Hot Stamping Foil Include: Food and beverage products Health and beauty items Pharmaceutical containers Luxury and gourmet goods Tobacco products Wine and spirit bottle labels Security labels
