Hot stamping works by pressing a heated metal die against a colored foil and the product to be printed.  Where the raised surface of the die touches the foil and product being stamped, the foil graphic is permanently transferred to product.


The process of hot stamping employs 2 consumable supplies: foil & dies. Hot Stamping is extremely economical : Foil costs at around 5 square inches for 1 cent.
