The Legal Stuff What our customers say about us

Hot Foil printing, which is also know as Hot Stamping, Dry Stamping or Foil Imprinting is one of the most well-established methods of printing onto a fabric ribbon.  Ink is suspended in a dry adhesive substrate and incorporated into a foil roll. The  ink is then released by using a printing plate with an image (company logo for example) stamping the foil using high heat and high pressure - The heat melts the ink and adhesive in the shape of the image on the printing plate which in turn is stamped directly onto the ribbon under high pressure, ensuring the ink and adhesive is imprinted onto the fabric. This rapidly cools leaving a bright, crisp image behind. The foil is wound onto a take up spool as the ribbon is passed through the print rollers and wound onto a ribbon core.
