1. What is hot stamp print
Hot stamping or foil stamping is a printing method of relief printing in which pre-dried ink or foils are transferred to a surface at high temperatures.
2. Requirement before print
2.1. Hot samp print machine
Locating print plate mold to the exact print area is very important. Tiny mistake will ruin the whole batch.
We use automatical print machine for large quantity orders, e.g. 10000 pcs eyeshadow palettes, while us manual print machine for very small quantity, e.g. 100 pcs lipsticks.
Print on flate products, such as eyeshadow palette, requires different print machine with print on round products, such as tubes.
2.2. Print plate mold
Before print, we have to make a print plate mold, which are made of bronze or silicon, depending on what products to print. The mold can’t be changed after it’s made. If you want to change the artwork for print, we have to make a new print plate mold. The quality of the mold will affect the quality of the printing.
2.3. Foil Paper
Foil paper is the required raw material for hot stamp print. Different suppliers have different color range and different quality and price. We use very high-quality foil paper, made in Japan, so the printing quality is very high and can stay much longer than cheap material.
2.4. Design Requirement
We use Adobe Illustrator to create the print plate mold. The logo or any symbols have to be converted to AI vector format. If you don’t know how to do it, our in-house designer can help you.
