HOT FOIL STAMPING

For exceptional visual and haptic experiences

Technical Approach

With classic hot foil stamping, the print motif is removed from a metallic foil with the help of a heated stamp and embossed onto the paper. The metallic sheen gives your product a very special effect.

We also offer digital hot foil stamping for smaller and more cost-effective projects. This does not require a stamp.
