Holographic Hot Stamping Foil
Holographic Hot Stamping Foil – Hot Stamping is a pollution-free dry printing process in which the holographic impression is transferred from a continuous carrier film to the desired substrate – filmic or paper.
Typical examples of this are:
- Payment cards such as Credit and Debit cards like RuPay, Mastercard, Visa
- Identity cards such as Driving License, PAN Card
- Documents such as mark sheets and certificates
- Product and MRP labels that have a hologram hot stamped for security or decoration
- Medicines with a hologram strip on the Alumunium Foil or the PVC blister as a mark of authenticity
We have particular expertise in offering registered image holograms for hot stamping and are proud to state that we are the largest producer of registered hologram for hot stamping onto plastic cards in India.
We produce holographic stamping foils for our own internal consumption and also supply these to our customers who hot stamp the foil on their own machines. Over the years we have developed the expertise to fine-tune our holographic stamping foils to run optimally on our customers’ stamping equipment on different substrates.
We also offer Chromium Foil holograms for securing the number plate holograms for vehicles.
Hot Stamping is a dry printing process where heat and pressure is used to apply metallic foil or holograms to substrates such as paper, board, and plastics.
Creation of a hologram master and the hologram printing process to make holographic stamping foil takes about 3 weeks generally. We can sometimes turn it around even quicker. Please share the project specifics and we will be happy to support you.
Any printing job is sensitive to quantities - both on production and commercial aspects. Higher the quantity, lower the cost. We will even deliver very small quantities , but in order to keep your costs low we suggest that you consolidate 2- or 3-months’ requirements in a single order.
Hot stamping foils that have a general running holographic design such as Authentic, Genuine etc. are called a generic design. These designs are available for any customer to use.
A registered holographic hot stamping foil is one where each image has an eye mark to allow the machine to sense the eye mark and hot stamp the same image at the same position on every label or card. The best example of a registered stamping foil can possibly be found on credit cards such as RuPay, Mastercard, Visa etc. Each of these cards has a registered image hot stamped hologram that looks identical in all the cards.
These are generally available in metallic silver and gold. However, as an experienced hologram manufacturer we realise that sometimes specific colours may also be required. Please contact us with your requirements and we will be happy to provide further information.
Do we need some specific machine to transfer hot stamping foil and what is tentative cost of those machines?
As a leading hologram manufacturer we have several types of hologram stamping machines and are able to hot stamp the hologram in-house to meet any requirement of our customers. Only label convertors hot stamp or transfer the holograms in-house. If you are a label convertor, you will need a hot stamping or transfer machine depending on the specifications of your job. We can supply any kind of foil that you may need.
A stamping foil is a very sensitive product and one needs to store it carefully in controlled conditions. We recommend storage in 25 degrees Celsius temperature and 65% Relative Humidity in a dry area. If stored in its original packaging in these conditions, our foils should be good for consumption upto 3 months from despatch.
Hot stamping can be done on most paper and plastic substrates.
