Hot stamping foil is a process in which anodized aluminum (various colors: gold, silver, black, red, green, etc.) is embossed onto paper or cardboard by heating.
Hot stamping involves the transfer of a metal foil to the surface of the print being stamped, with the help of a certain amount of pressure and temperature. Hot stamping foil is also used as an anti-counterfeiting method, as well as for branding and authentication purposes, and is widely used in the packaging of food, pharmaceuticals, beverages, and other products.
One of the most significant advantages of foil stamping is that it can be used to handle a variety of common product materials, including plastics, rubber, and metals, in addition to materials such as wood, leather, and glass.
