Foil printing is a printing method in which a piece of colored metallic foil is placed between a piece of paper and a die. First the die is heated and then pressed against the foil and paper. It is the heating and pressure process that helps transfer the colored metallic foil on the paper. Usually, foil stamping is used for covers and packaging purposes. The most preferred colors for foil stamping are silver and gold, but there also a few other color options available that can be used for the same.
Foil stamping is a process that is done after printing and lamination. For the best quality foil stamping, it is recommended that the text is at least 12lb in size. Lastly, and most importantly, while designing images or texts to be used for foil stamping, you must always use vector graphics.
