Hot Foil Stamping

'Glossy-, matte-, metallic-, mirror-, holographic- and even transparent foils can be applied.'

What is hot foil stamping?
At Vrijdag Premium Printing we apply heat foils. This technique is also called hot stamping foil, hot foil, hot foil stamping, hot stamp or hot foiling. With this printing technique, a thin color or metal foil is applied to the printed matter. The foil is transferred to the underlying paper or cardboard by means of a cliché (metal plate). Heat and pressure equalize irregularities and roughness of the paper or cardboard used. The foil gives glamor and exclusivity to a print and packaging.

Different types of foils
There are many types of foils that can be used for foil stamping. Think of gold and silver foil, metallic colors in high gloss, satin or matte versions. What many people do not know is that it is also possible to use holographic foil in different patterns or high security / security foil.

Foil combined with micro embossing
It's also possible to add micro embossing during the foil printing process. Micro emboss gives a very special effect and can also be realized in the same course during the film. Foil, relief and micro embossing can even be printed in one pass.
