What is a Foil Stamping logo?

Foil stamping is a great way to add that custom high end touch to your promotional products.

A special printing process using heat and metallic film, foil stamping uses sculpted metal stamps. The heated stamps seal a thin layer of metallic film onto a surface working similarly to a letterpress. Once heated, it presses the foil with enough pressure that the foil sticks only in the intended places.

Using multiple layers of foil in this process can create an embossing effect, offering added style choices.

Foil stamping can be used on:

  1. Paper
  2. Vinyl
  3. Wood
  4. Textiles
  5. Leather
  6. Hard plastic
