Foil stamping

Foil stamping / foil printing or foil ‘blocking’ is a traditional style of letterpress printing where an image is applied to a product or substrate such as paper, cardboard, leather and various plastics.

Foil stamping is an artistic bespoke approach to printing, it is a ‘dry’ process using rolls of foil – sometimes called gold leaf but not limited to the colour gold of course. Printing foil is made up of several layers and is applied using heat and pressure.

There’s a long history of foil printing through the ages. Check our blogs to see just how far back into time this artisan craft can be traced.

Embossing

 

Embossing, essentially is moulding the substrate – generally paper or card – with a female embossing block and it’s male counterpart.

By using the force of our foilstamping and embossing machine, we can press the paper and card into almost any shape you can think of, single level embossing and multi level embossing is achievable with this process.

Debossing is the exact opposite of the Emboss – instead of the image standing proud on the page – it is pressed into the card to give an altogether different effect…

 

*** Did you know… we can combine the foilstamping and embossing process into one pass? this is called combination foil-embossing and can create spectacular embellishment effects.

WHO IS MATTE?
About: Matthew Murcott | Director

I first sighted a foil-stamping machine as a child, in the Moorabbin factory where my dad worked. On school holidays I spent some time on a Milford Astor hand foil stamping press and finally took an apprenticeship at 17 to work alongside my dad in the trade. After 13 years of trade foil-stamping I left to pursue a career in sales, still within the foil industry but on the other side of the fence – selling hot stamping foil for an international supplier. Here I learnt more about foil applications, manufacturing and most importantly – security foils and their applications.

Once I moved on from this position, I spent two years sub-contracting and training company tradespeople on their presses but finally made my way to the Colorpak Group where for 7 years I managed the foil-stamping and print finishing company – Foilmasters.

In 2015, Colorpak made the hard decision to relinquish the Foilmasters trade business to myself and whilst holding on to their 40 inch foil-stamping and laminate machinery they would concentrate on their own internal demands and finishing requirements – hence Matte Gold was born.
