hot foil stamping 1 / 2 / 3 / 4 / 5 / 6 / 7

real gold foil

Cartor has become renowned for its use of genuine gold and silver foils. Intricate gold blocking can be used to great effect to create a very special and opulent stamp. The foil detail is created when 22 (or 24) carat gold foil is pressed onto the printed stamp surface using a special hand-finished embossing tool. The combination of heat and pressure transfers the gold foil onto the face of the printed stamp sheets.
