Hot stamping: The easy fit for the future
Hot stamping is the most beautiful type of finishing – with incomparable gloss, unbeatable tactile and extraordinary 3D structures. Hot stamping is a high-performance process nowadays – and is made even easier with our KURZ EASY initiative. For example: with tools for shortened set-up times, with uncomplicated foils that save setup time; and with FOILCONNECT®, our software with effective tools e.g. for simplified ordering and efficient use of foil.
KURZ EASY incorporates hot stamping processes into the digital world, and opens new horizons for planning and carrying out your stamping jobs.
