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 them. In 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 branding, but 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.
