Cold Stamping Foil

Cold stamping is a fast and flexible method of printing and stamping. It requires no metal dies, improving the speed at which any run of printing can be done. This is done is by printing using a UV-reactive adhesive and transferring the foil without the use of a die. A low cost printing plate is used to apply adhesive in the area of the design. The foil is then laid on the adhesive, and cured by UV light or oxidative drying before the foil is removed.

Cold stamping is possible for long and short print runs. The colours available for cold stamping are endlessly open to customisation.

Cold stamping produces brilliant metallic effects that are vibrant as well as precisely detailed. It is an affordable option for printers, and the customisation of colours in cold stamping foils inspires creativity and unique designs for products. The colours traditionally available include gold and silver along with holographic foils. They can be used instead of lamination for a metallic effect that will cover a large area of a substrate.

Cold stamping is a time-effective, economical method. When applied, these foils guarantee full coverage. They can be applied with speed and efficiency while also being used for delicate designs. Even the machinery needed to set up a cold stamping printing process is comparatively low cost. Cold stamping foils are also biodegradable.
