In Love with Hot Stamping

Hot Stamping Case Study Wine: Label for the Alcohol Industry

The wine label was offset printed in black and red and then hot-stamped with LUMAFIN® 720 red and LUMAFIN® 701 met. bronze. The semi-transparent effect of LUMAFIN® is particularly effective here: the high-contrast print image is still discernible through the metallization when viewed directly, but disperses increasingly towards the edges. The effect is particularly apparent on the curvature of the wine bottle. The stamping die of LUMAFIN® 701 met. bronze also has a matt-gloss nano-embossing structure. All other elements were relief-embossed with LUXOR® 397. Have we inspired your curiosity? Get our fascinating brochure with more LUMAFIN® label designs. For free.

Hot Stamping Case Study Olive Oil: Label for the Food Industry

In the first production step, the motif was offset printed in multicolor. Embossing then took place with LUMAFIN® 701 met. bronze, LUMAFIN® 710 yellow and finally LUXOR® 397 in metallic gold. The large-scale use of the LUMAFIN® 710 yellow is particularly attractive here and provides high-gloss contrasts on the lightly structured paper. LUMAFIN® 701 met. bronze and LUXOR® 397 give the label a luxurious feel with their tipping, which gives the olive oil a sophisticated look and creates a great impression at the POS.
