Hot stamping is the technique of applying a variety of metallic and or holographic accents to a container or closure through the use of heat, pressure and dyes. The dye is embossed with the image to be transferred to the surface of the container. The embossed dye is then heated, pressing the foil onto container.
Advantages of hot stamping:
Works on both glass and plastic substrates
Does not require post-curing or treatment
Can be applied in gold, silver, copper or any “metalized” color
