Are you stuck with finding the right hot stamping foil supplier for your products? No wonder, stamping foils with all the packaging technicalities can bring a lot of confusion. But don’t worry, as we bring forth the much-needed do’s and don’ts shared by our hot stamping foil experts to simplify your decision-making. Before, sharing the points let’s discuss a bit about hot stamping foils and their uses, especially for packaging professionals dealing with such foils for the first time.
Hot stamping is the process of using heat & pressure to apply metallic or holographic foil on materials like paper boards, papers, laminated boards, & corrugated boxes. The stamping process is durable, cost-effective, and flexible. Due to its many features, hot foil stamping is being used in different industries.
Lately, the process is being used on a wide range of products to give a decorative look and provide anti-counterfeiting features. Some of the industries where hot foil stamping is used include luxury goods packaging, tobacco, pharma, food, and apparel. Foil stamping is also used in gift wrapping, wedding invitations, and many other applications.
In the hot foil stamping process a heated die forces the foil against a substrate which is held firm by a counter cylinder. The double combination of pressure and heat activates the adhesive lining, and the foil attaches to the substrate
Until now you might have understood the basics of a hot stamping foil, now let’s discuss the do’s and don’ts.
-Look for stamping foils with holography. This ensures that your product and packaging remain safe from duplication. Counterfeiters find it really tough to copy holography as it requires sophisticated origination machines and a rigorous process.
-Do check for the visual appeal. Yes, stamping foils must have aesthetic and appealing elements to make your products look attractive. Look for good designs, patterns, and optical effects.
-Stamping foils with two side-scan marks are always better than those with just one. Scan marks help with the uniform and accurate application of the foil on the application.
-Check the background of your stamping foil supplier. Now, this is the most important aspect. Overlooking your supplier’s background and reputation can land you in trouble.
-Is the price cost-effective? Pricing plays an important role. Plan with procurement & packaging managers on the budget assigned for packaging. Don’t go for too pricey and or too cheap foils.
-Never finalize your supplier without the sampling process. Overlooking this step can result in a waste of your time, efforts, and investment.
-Don’t compromise with foil quality. You or your procurement manager must always check the durability factor in the foils.
-Don’t buy foils that can’t be customized as per the stamping machine available with you or your packaging partner.
-Never finalize the deal with a foil supplier that can’t fulfill your customized requirements.
-Don’t go for suppliers that have a bad market reputation when it comes to meeting delivery deadlines.
