Here at NYC printing 123 the process of embossing is extremely simple and cost effective. It is one of the cheapest ways to enhance the look and feel of any surface be it paper, cloth or metal even. There are several things that need  attention in an embossing project.  NYC printing 123 takes pride in its work so we take serious, the process and materials  to be used, the surface to be used, the creation of the artwork and the embossing details of course.

Types Of Metal Embossing Dies

There are three types of metals that are used for embossing dies. Depending on the shape of the image, the texture to be created and the length of the run you can select the metal.

  • Magnesium dies are used for easy embossing projects that have short runs. The designs are large and uncomplicated. Magnesium also allows for special hand tooling.
  • Brass dies are the most popular embossing dies. They are very flexible and give the embosser leeway to create fine lines, sculptured images, combo foil stamping and embossing. They are also very good for images requiring extensive hand tooling. You can make brass dies by machines or by a semi-photographic process. The photograph is transferred onto the die to use as a guide for drawing.
  • Copper dies are used as an in between to magnesium and brass. However copper dies do not permit hand tooling.

Foil used in Foil stamping

NYC printing 123 likes show its customers it cares and wants them to be informed of what they do and how they do it as well as what they use. Now that you know what is foil stamping, you must be wondering what type of foils are used in this process, well NYC printing 123 has come up with an answer…The very essence of foil stamping is the foil paper that is pressed with a die onto different materials, along with heat and pressure, to create unusual designs and prints. There are various foil paper available for use in foil stamping our experts at  NYC printing 123 will explain what they are and where they come from.

Types of foil:

  • Metallic Foil Paper: Metallic foil paper has a metal like sheen and gives a shiny and shimmering look to the foil stamped design. Such foil paper is available in different metal shades such as gold, silver, bronze, and copper just to name a few. In addition to metallic colors, metallic foil paper is also available in other colors such as green, blue, red, orange, yellow, and pink.
  • Gloss Pigment Foil Paper: This type of foil does not have a metallic look but has a very high glossy finish. Using this type of foil gives a painted look to the finished stamping. Gloss foil is also available in many different colors.
  • Matte Pigment Foil Paper: The same colors that are available in gloss foil paper are also available in a dull finish as opposed to a glossy finish, thus the name matte foil paper. A solid white foil paper also comes under the classification of matte foils.
  • Holographic Foil Paper: A multidimensional image made photographically with the use of lasers and special optics is called a hologram. Such hologram images are transferred on unique foil paper, which is then known as holographic foil paper. This kind of foil gives a very special, moving effect to the foil designs.

Types Of Foil Stamping


Foil stamping is a special kind of printing procedure where heat, pressure, and a metallic paper (foil) is used to create different shiny designs and graphics on various materials. Foil stamping gives the stamped design a shiny and incredible look and is increasingly becoming the preferred method of printing in many an industry.

Foil stamping is also referred to as hot stamping (because of the use of heat), foil printing, dry stamping, and leaf stamping. There are various types of foil stamping that can be used depending on your design needs.Foil stamping is called dry printing because it does not use any sort of ink for printing purposes. It is a dry stamping process where ink, some sort of magnetism, or plates are not used to print letters and pictures as is used in traditional printing methods. In place of all these things, foil stamping uses dies or carved metal plates, heat, and foil in the stamping process.


1) Flat Foil Stamping

The flat stamp technology is the most popular kind of foil stamping in use as it is relatively simple and much more cost effective than the other types of foil stamping. In flat stamping, the foil is transferred onto the substrate using a flat stamp that is generally a magnesium or copper metal stamp. The finished result is a foil stamp that is only very slightly raised on the original surface and there is no trace of any impression on the back of the substrate material. If you want a more raised look with flat foil stamping, you can do another stamp with an embossing die that will give the flat foil stamp new dimensions.

2) Sculpted Foil Stamping (Multi-Level Foil Stamping)

Sculpted foil stamping is achieved with a die that has more than one level or which is carved with the exact design and specifications required by the customer. This type of multi-level foil stamping results in a foil design that appears raised from its surface. The various elements of the design are brought out beautifully and distinctly. The sculpted dies are usually made from brass and are typically carved by hand. This type of foil stamping gives excellent finished results but is far more costly than regular flat foil stamping.

3) Vertical Foil Stamping

This kind of foil stamping technology is best used for stamping foil designs on to flat or faintly topped part substrates, and also for parts that are cylindrical in shape, but only to a maximum of 90 degrees of the outer perimeter of such parts.

4) Peripheral Foil Stamping

Peripheral foil stamping is the technique used to apply foil heat transfers onto the outer perimeter of various materials. Unlike vertical foil stamping, with peripheral foil stamping, you can apply foil stamping to the entire 360 degrees of the circumference of the intended part.
