Your Sustainable Benefits of Hot Stamping

As traditional as it is, the hot stamping process for the printing industry was always a step ahead in the matter of sustainability: Thanks to the perfectly coordinated mix of high temperature and pressure, fabulous designs can be printed directly onto the surface without leaving any foil traces. We use PET foils only as a carrier for our outstanding color effects. Furthermore, both the machine architecture as well as the stamping dies are extremely durable components. This guarantees you maximum performance with less energy input for new purchases, less waste, less process downtime. As the market leader for surface finishing for the graphic industry, our main goal is to provide you with sustainable finishing for your packaging. Therefore we focus on deinkablerecyclable and compostable hot stamping foils with no loss in brilliance and design freedom.
