Foil Stamping – This is the application of pigment or metallic foil to paper. A heated die is stamped onto the foil, making it adhere to the surface leaving the design of the die on the paper. We have a wide range of colors available. CLICK HERE to view our Foil Chart.
Embossing – Typically accomplished by applying heat and pressure with male and female dies, usually made of copper or brass, that fit together and squeeze the fibers of the substrate. The combination of pressure and heat raises the level of the image higher than the substrate.
Debossing – This is similar to embossing, but recesses the design rather than raising it.
Custom Die-Cut – A die is a specialized tool used in manufacturing industries to cut or shape material using a press. Done after printing as part of the finishing process, diecuts are areas of the document that are partially or completely cut, shaped, or cut-out in a variety of shapes. We can use customized dies to create a truely unique package for your product.
