Hot stamping is a straight forward process; 1) A die is mounted and heated, 2) Foil is positioned above the material to be imprinted, 3) A combination of heat, dwell time, pressure and stripping time control the quality of the stamp. Foil stamping is environmentally friendly due to it being a dry process. It does not use solvents or inks and does not create any harmful vapors.
