Deriving from the label production sector, this technique has been applied to offset printing, thus opening up to printers a range of effects once only possible with hot stamping and with a series of limitations.
In addition to the possibility of working with a uniform full or holed substrate – thus avoiding the need to overprint in white – cold foil guarantees the back of the printed surface remains unaltered, without any pressure typical of hot stamping.
Cold Foil in gold or silver is the finish of choice for embellishing your processing.
The application of Cold Foil, which is mainly in silver or gold, allows four-colour overprinting or stamping in any other pantone colour, thus reaching an infinite range of tones. It can also be left unaltered to add a luxurious glow to your prints.

Cold foil is an invaluable aid to the paper converting industry for boxes with variable data printed in inkjet.
For the pharmaceutical, cosmetics and perfumery sectors, packaging has a particular importance, both in terms of aesthetics and of correspondence to specific needs.
In addition to embellishing the packaging, we can safeguard the space that must be reserved for variable data, without changing the graphic design aspect and without having to finish this area with white UV ink, which would limit the overwriting and readability of the words.
