Hot Foil (Stamp) Printing

Hot foil (stamp) printing & coding

Hot foil printing (sometimes called ‘hot stamp printing’) is an established technology for coding, marking and overprinting on a wide range of packaging materials. It is based on a heated metal die (engraved printing die) pressing a pigmented hot foil tape against the packaging material.

Reliable, versatile, economical and low maintainance makes hot foil an ideal technology for the printing of lot numbers, use by dates, batch number and expiry dates.

When coupled with one of our automatic offline feeding systems a hot foil printer is ideal for:

  • Applying a shiny metallic foil print onto a variety of substrates.
  • Printing of discrete lot identification onto cosmetic cartons.

Key benefits:

  • Exceptional print quality and durability.
  • Low initial and long term costs.
