Hot stamping foils are important packaging solutions for brand aesthetics and security. Of late, these foils are being used in industries like FMCG, Pharma, Agro, leather, etc. Available in different colours, shapes and sizes the foils can be customized as per your needs. However, there are many important points which you might skip before choosing them. In this blog we are giving you four helpful tips on buying stamping foils. 

 1. Check the production quality 

Poor quality hot stamping foils cannot withstand the harsh environment of the supply chain. You can lose your money and efforts by investing in such foils. Therefore, it is highly recommended to assess the production quality of hot stamping foils before purchasing themIn order to ensure production quality, it is necessary to do the sampling of the products on time. Moreover, it is better if you personally visit the manufacturing facility and have a personal experience of the production process and raw materials.    

 2. Check if the foil aligns with the applicator/stamper 

If the hot stamping foil does not fits into the applicator or stamper then it is of no use. There are chances that you might overlook this important factor before choosing the foil and it could be disastrous. Always check to ensure that the dimensions of the hot stamping foil matches with the applicator or not. This little check can save you from a lot of problems in the future.  

 3. Check for the affordability 

Stay away from foils that are too expensive or too cheap. As a manufacturer, you must be aware of your investments. There are many suppliers in the market who will try to dupe you by selling generic hot stamping foils at high prices. You must always look out for high-quality foils available at affordable prices.  

 4. Check for the security factor

Hot stamping foils don’t just serve the purpose of brandingbut are also important security products. While selecting the foil look for holography, overt, covert and other features. This will ensure that your product remains safe from the menace of counterfeiting.

Most of the bottled products require shrink sleeve labels for branding and security. As a manufacturer you might also require shrink labels for your products. With so many label suppliers available in the marketthe challenge to select the best can lead you to make mistakes. Here are the four common ones which you should avoid at all costs.  

1. Skipping the sampling process

While choosing a shrink label manufacturer your procurement manager might skip the sampling process. This can be disastrous for your company as you might get poor quality labels. Such labels can easily tear apart or get damaged in the supply chain. Skipping the sampling process for labels can also affect your brand identity. Poor quality labels are big no for your brand as they bring down your image in the market and weakens your customer’s trust.  

As packaging experts, we always advise to do the sampling of the products you are interested in. This ensures that you receive only great quality products at affordable prices.        

2. Not visiting the manufacturing site in-person

You can have the best experience of the product and the manufacturing process by personally visiting the manufacturing site. You can touch and feel the raw materials, adhesives and other materials used for making labels. This can give you enough understanding of the product quality and the standards utilised in manufacturing. 

We always recommend you to visit the manufacturing facility before making the deal. Visiting the site will instil confidence in you and make you aware about the quality of the shrink labels  

 3. Compromising quality for cost

It’s a fact that costs play a very important role in the healthy functioning of your company. The costs incurred on buying packaging solutions for your goods can impact your profits. However, there are instances when you just care about the costs and may choose a low-quality product. This compromise can give you a big setback. A poor-quality packaging product can never benefit you.  

We recommend you to stay away from a packaging solution that is too costly or too cheap. Try to go for a solution that is of high quality and comes at an affordable cost. A thorough research of the market and product sampling will definitely help you in this.   

 4. Overlooking the durability factor

You can make a big mistake if you are overlooking the durability of security labels. A lowgrade label cannot withstand the harsh conditions of the supply chain and can get damaged easily. Many procurement managers overlook the durability factor in packaging and later suffer from huge monetary losses. We always advice to check for the durability of labels before making the final deal.
