Foil Stamping Process

The foil stamping can be divided into 2 types, the hot foil stamping and cold foil stamping.

Hot Foil Stamping

In the hot foil stamping process, the sculpted metal plate comes in contact with the foil film under external pressure and heat, then the foil color is transferred to the intended paperboard. Temperature, pressure and speed are 3 important factors to achieve a good foil effect.

Cold Foil Stamping

In the cold foil stamping process, there are 4 main steps:


  • Print the UV-curable adhesive on to the paperboard by using the standard printing plates. The UV curable adhesive is a special type of glue, which can be dried instantly by the UV light. 
  • Nip the foil film onto the printed adhesive
  • The paperboard is exposed under the UV light, then the adhesive is cured (dried)
  • The foil corresponding to the adhesive area sticks to the tacky adhesive area on the paperboard and the bright shining foil effect is created on the custom paper box

Foil Stamping Colors
