Foiling & Foil Stamping

What is Foiling / Foil Stamping?

Foil StampingThis is a process where a heated die is used to fuse foil to paper. The foil comes in a variety of colors: gold, silver, metallic colors, pigment foils, holographic images, clear foil and more.

Foil stamping can be combined with embossing to further accent the foiling, if you desire.

Foil stamping is also referred to as hot stamping (because of the use of heat), foil printing, dry stamping and leaf stamping.

In the foil stamping process, the die or the 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 required areas with the desired imprint.

We have a wide selection of foils to choose from, along with printed samples to show you some of the effects you can create with foil.  Feel free to call, email or stop by to discuss your project and see the different types of foiling options you can choose from. We are located in the San Fernando Valley, an easy drive from Calabasas, Westlake Village, Encino, Santa Clarita and Los Angeles.  Or reach us at: 818-709-1220 or info@clearprint.com
