Foil Stamping

You are here:

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.
