What is Hot Foil?

Hot Foil Imprinting is the process I use to make my designs.

This process uses metal dies that are heated to 275 degrees in a hot foil imprinter, then pressed onto the item being imprinted. My Imprinting Machine requires the item to be flat (books, napkins, paper, albums). Each metal die is hand set, each letter being it's own die.

It is a permanent process, and the foil gives a slight sheen (depending on foil chosen) and the stamp leaves a slight impression.

There are many names people use to describe this process: Hot Foil Stamping, Engraved or Engraving, Imprinting / Imprinted.
