The process of foil stamping is similar to letterpress printing, in that an image is transferred to the paper by way of a custom-made die. However, rather than ink, a very thin layer of metal is applied to the paper. In order to achieve this, the heated metal die, combined with extreme pressure, causes the foil to adhere to the paper. Although this process is a bit more labor intensive than conventional printing, the results can be stunning!
Our press operators take great pride in their craft. With experience comes knowledge, and they will happily make recommendations regarding the best foil for your paper choice. For a distinct visual impact that literally shines, consider integrating a foil stamp into your next design.
