Hot Stamping

Hot stamping is a dry printing process that transfers color pigment or metallic material from a continuous film carrier sheet to a component. The heat and pressure of hot stamping permanently transfer the image to the plastic. A silicone rubber die conforms to fit the slightly uneven surfaces often found in molded parts and allows for excellent resolution and repeatability.

The process is clean, dry, fast and free from the manufacturing limitations commonly associated with wet ink printing. It is often used in series with pad printing.
