Foil imprinting is a special kind of printing process that uses heat, pressure, and metallic film (foil) to create different shiny designs and graphics on paper, vinyl, textiles, wood, hard plastic, leather, and other materials. Foil imprinting gives the stamped design a shiny and beautiful look and is increasingly becoming the preferred method of printing.
Foil imprinting is also called dry printing because it does not use any ink for printing purposes. It is a dry stamping process where ink, some sort of magnetism, or plates are not used to print letters and pictures as is used in traditional printing methods. In place of all these things, foil stamping uses dies or carved metal plates, heat, and foil in the stamping process.
In the foil stamping process, the die/sculpted metal plate comes in contact with the foil and transfers a thin layer of the foil film onto the intended surface. As the metal plate is heated, the foil sticks to the surface only in the design of the plate and in the required areas, leaving a desire imprint.
