HOT FOILING

ATTRACT ATTENTION TO YOUR BRAND WITH FOIL STAMP PRINTING

Nothing says elegance in print more than foil stamping and embossing. You can give your printed pieces a bit more shine with the custom foil printing service at Corcoran Printing. Our foil printing machine has the capability of foil stamping even the most intricate designs. The laminate properties of hot foiling allow for a shiny, reflective effect, something that absorbing ink cannot achieve. To accomplish the process, a hot foil stamping machine will stamp a heated die onto the foil, making it adhere to the surface of the paper and leaving the design of the die on the paper.

This process produces a shiny, eye-catching affect on paper. Hot foil stamping can be combined with embossing for an even more dramatic affect. Using different foil colors and combining ink and foil with embossing can add even more dimensions your design. While gold foil printing is probably the most popular, foils come in a variety of colors, finishes and special effects.

TYPES OF FOILS USED IN CUSTOM FOIL PRINTING

 

Although gold foil print and silver foil print are in high demand, there are many colors of metallic and pigment foils available. Gloss pigment foil paper has no metallic look, but it does have a high gloss finish. Matte pigment foil will accomplish a subdued finish and metallic foils will provide a metal sheen with a very shiny look. A specialty foil, such as a holographic foil can help create a three-dimensional, high-tech look. Special effects foils, such as marbles, leathers, woodgrains and pearl can add an even more distinctive look to your foil printed piece. You can choose from a variety of foils when foil printing at Corcoran Printing, including gloss and matte colors and fluorescents, as well as clear foils.
