Metallic foil embossing
The art of… foil embossing
Sumptuous metallic foils create a distinctive look and feel to your branded product. You can achieve fantastic branding results with our high quality foils hot stamped onto your promotional product.
The foil impression is created from a bespoke metal die that is formed from your own artwork.
The metal die is run through a specialised treatment where the foil, in the form of a thin film roll, is applied to the product using a careful balance of heat and pressure known as ‘blocking’.
You can select your desired foil from our range of foil options.
