HOT FOIL PRINTING


Hot foil printing uses a method of heat and pressure to transfer the colour to the item to be printed using special foils.

Foils come in a wide variety of colours giving a reflective/mirror effect and can be printed on substrates such as plastic, wood, leather etc, which is not always possible with conventional inks.

Flat or matt colours are also available if a reflective finish is not required.

Part of the setup costs for hot foil printing are in the production of a printing plate which is used to transfer the image to the item to be printed. Once this plate is manufactured it can be used over and over again. This is why AlKaz can offer discounts on higher quantities.

All Printing plates remain the property of Alkaz Design & Print. (You pay only for the manufacture of the plates)
