Hot stamping is widely used in the printing industry. With the continuous development of raw materials and process technology, the hot stamping effect adds more color effects to the printing industry.
Hot stamping is a traditional process, which uses the template installed on the hot stamping machine to press the printed matter and hot stamping foil against each other in a short time at a certain temperature and pressure, so that the metal foil or pigment foil can be transferred to the surface of the printed matter to be burned according to the graphics and text of the hot stamping template. The pattern is clear and beautiful, the color is bright and eye-catching, wear-resistant and the metal texture is strong, which plays a role in highlighting the theme.
Cold stamping technology refers to the method of using UV adhesive to transfer the foils to the printing material. Cold stamping can not only save the cost of hot stamping and improve the production efficiency, but also can be used on some materials that cannot be hot stamped. At the same time, it can also achieve the effect of hot stamping, so that there are more choices for producing hot stamping materials.
In recent years, the production technology has been continuously updated, and the three-dimensional hot stamping has also been developed rapidly, which greatly improves the production efficiency and saves the production cost, and the produced products are more delicate and beautiful.
With the continuous research and development of raw materials, there are more kinds of hot foils, and designers can choose foils with different patterns and colors according to the graphic design. At present, gold foils, silver foils, laser foils (laser foils have various patterns to choose) and foils with various bright colors are widely used. According to different printing processes, it is necessary to choose single-sided foil or double-sided foil. Single-sided foil is used for ordinary products with normal printing processes (such as packaging and trademark stickers, etc.), while double-sided foil is mainly used for transfer products (such as tattoo stickers and scratch stickers, etc.).
