How Hot Foil Label Printing Works

The process of hot foil label printing involves the combination of pressure and heat to create a metallic label. To print a label with a hot stamp, metallic foil is applied to paper using an engraved plate. The plate is heated and forced against the label material with the dry ink in between, which results in the design of the plate being left on the material. Oftentimes, the process of hot foil stamping is combined with embossing to create a three-dimensional image that stands out from other labels.
