Hot stamping – the most beautiful of all finishes. Offering incomparable gloss, unbeatable tactile quality and extraordinary 3D effects, this high-performance process produces high-impact results that no other print medium can achieve


The process of applying hot foil stamping, requires a die or stamp, pressure, heat, and specific printing machinery.

Hot foils are available in a wide range of standard shiny metallic tones and are also available in matt metallic, matt black, white, transparent, holographic and diffraction patterns.

Hot foils can also be embossed, which adds a tactile quality to the hot foil printed area.
