Foil Stamped Presentation Folders
The highest degree of luxury and elegance
Lockhart’s exclusive foil stamping process brands your identity with true grace and distinction, and represents the highest expression of the printer’s art.
Foil stamping is a specialty printing process that uses heat, pressure, metal dies and foil film. The foil comes in rolls in a wide assortment of colors and finishes. Choosing your foil is probably the most exciting part of the folder process, and your options are almost unlimited.
Types of Foil
Metallic foil is the most commonly used material in foil stamping. This material produces a shiny metallic finish. Our metallic foil colors include gold, silver, pewter and copper.
Pigment foils don’t have a metallic look, but instead come in a range of glossy colors. These are great for pulling out text or logos in an eye-catching color. We offer a full range of pigment foils.
You can also request custom foil colors from an almost endless range of options.
Our Custom Foil Stamping Process
Once your design is finalized it is milled into a brass metal die. The die is heated and the foil is placed between the die and the surface of the paper to be stamped. It is then stamped with enough pressure to bond a thin layer of foil to the paper.
For multiple colored designs, separate dies need to be created for each color, and several runs of the press are required to produce the final design. A final die is also created if an embossed (raised) image or effect is desired for the design.
Our Exclusive ColoRaised™ Imprinting
Our exclusive ColoRaised™ imprinting is a multi-step process that combines foil stamping with raised embossing on the surface of the cover.
