Gold foil stamping & silver foil stamping

Gold foil stamping & silver foil stamping:

The gold foil stamping and silver foil stamping is a prestigious metallic finishing to the cosmetic packaging box and paper gift bags, giving a luxury quality feel. The gold hot foil and silver hot stamping is widely used in cosmetic boxes, gift boxes, rigid set up boxes and luxury paper bags. Gold foil or silver foil hot stamping can make the brand logo standing out. Also, foil stamping can be combined with embossing to create a more striking 3D image. In the foil stamping process, the sculpted metal plate comes in contact with the foil paper and transfers a thin layer of the foil film onto the intended paperboard. As the metal plate is heated, the foil will stick to the surface of the paperboard with desired effect.


Paper foil types:

1. Metallic foil paper has a metal like sheen and gives a shiny and shimmering look to the foil stamped paper box. Such foil paper is available in different metal shades such as gold(matte gold and bright gold), silver(matte silver and bright silver), bronze, copper and other metallic colors. Metallic foil paper has other colors like metal green, metal blue, metal red, metal pink and so on. 
2. Gloss/Matte pigment foil paper gives the printed gift box a painted look and a very high glossy/matte finishing withou the metallic look. This foil paper is available in various colors.
3. Holographic foil paper can make the multidimensional image photographically with the use of lasers and special optics, which is called a hologram. A hologram design can make the custom paper boxes and paper bags a very special, moving effect. 


Embossing & Debossing:

To add embossing or debossing finishing on the cosmetic rigid paper box and custom paper bags is a good way to decorate your packaging paper box and have a strong visual impact. In the embossing or debossing process, the paper material is fit between the two dies. A press and heat will work together to squeeze the die imprint into the paper material. The result is that a raised and exact copy of the logo or artwork will show up. The embossed or debossed area will be smooth because of the smooth die surface.
