Hot Stamping 101

What it is and how it works

What is hot stamping?

Hot stamping creates a precise application of foil with a dimensional feel on the paper. It utilizes a die on our stamping machine mounted above the flexo press. The die or “stamp” is heated so as the sheet of foil runs through, the pressure from the stamp fixes the foil to the paper surface.

Hammer Packaging uses the 10-color 17” P7 Mark Andy flexo press for all of its hot stamping needs.
