What is foil stamping?

One of the post press machines we provide a lot of is a foil stamping machine, but what is foil stamping?

Foil stamping is the process also know as hot foil stamping. It involves heat to transfer a metallic foil to a solid surface. There are many things that are foil stamped, such as annual reports, packaging for products, thank you cards and business cards to name just a few. They are particularly popular with businesses and can add another element that can allow them to produce better products for their clients.

There are two primary types of foil machines, with one working manually and the other being pneumatic (air powered), and these are primarily used in commercial printers. The major difference is that manual foil stampers are ideal for low jobs, where high volume jobs require the air powered machine.

The foil themselves come in a wide range of colours and finishes, with common options being gold and silver, which are popular with many different types of clientele.

If you are in the market for a foil stamping machine for your businesses or would like to talk to use about the possibility of replacing one you have with a refurbished machine, please do not hesitate to get in touch with BBR Graphics today. We have an experienced sales team who can source a high-quality machine, and our mechanical team refurbish to the highest of standards to ensure you get the best machine for your budget.
