Hot foil stamping is a commercial printing process whereby a pneumatic foil stamping machine uses heat to transfer metallic foil to a solid flat surface. The process requires a plate (or block) be mounted to the stamp. The plate is then heated, and pressure from the machine is placed on the metallic foil whereby the application of metallic foil adheres to the material below leaving the design of the heated plate. The process of hot foil stamping consists of several stages: plate production, setup, imposition, temperature and pressure testing, and test printing.
Lauren Skorsis has three hot foil stamping machines, each designed to work on small, medium and large artwork.
