Kaysville, UT December 6, 2004 -- YouÂve probably seen it before. A metallic, shiny logo or name that appears on books, photographs and other products. How is it done? Is the process complicated? The process is called foil stamping. You will be surprised how easy it is and who actually uses it.
Foil stamping is very easy to use, and looks clean and professional. Foil stamping involves a thin layer of metallic foil that is pressed, with the use of a die, into a product. By use of heat, any foil that touches a surface is fused to it. Because the die presses into the surface, the foil fuses everywhere pressure is applied.
What are foil stampers usually used for? Foil stampers are most commonly used to stamp a name into a book. You will often see books with an individualÂs name in metallic lettering at the base. Foil stampers are also commonly used for photographs. Usually photographers will stamp their company name or the individualÂs name into the photograph. This will usually be seen diagonally on a corner. Foil stampers are also used for weddings to stamp the name of the couple into a napkin or an announcement.
Foil stamping machines come in a variety of shapes and sizes. Desktop units are lightweight and are manually operated. These stampers are nice for low-volume jobs. Desktop foil stampers can be easily transported and setup(http://www.officezone.com/how150sys.htm). Larger machines are available for high-volume foil stamping. Some foil stampers are available in a pneumatic (air-powered) design. Pneumatic foil stampers operate very quickly and eliminate a lot of manual work (http://www.officezone.com/foil86a.htm).
Foil stamping foil is usually sold in rolls. These rolls are available in different lengths, colors and styles. Some foils stick better to leather, wood, paper, vinyl or plastic. Always be sure you know what you are going to be stamping before purchasing a foil stamping machine or supplies.
