Hot Stamping

At Sun Process Converting, we offer custom coating and conversion services for a variety of pressure sensitive decorative and functional materials. Our clients rely on us for an array of services; including laminating, die cutting, slitting, sheeting, flat cutting, and hot stamping.

Hot stamping is a printing method by which pre-dried inks or foils are transferred to a surface at high temperatures. This is performed using a hot stamp machine where a die is mounted and heated; then the product to be stamped is placed beneath it. A metallized or roll-leaf carrier is placed between the die and the material, the die presses down and the foil is impressed into the product surface.
