Foil Blocking

Whether you want a metallic finish over fine or larger areas, foil blocking creates something special. You can select matt or gloss foils in gold, silver or other colours, which will enhance the look and feel of your application.Foil Blocking examples

Our foil blocking is normally laser compatible and suitable for laminated and coated surfaces as well as uncoated.

An extensive range of colours and finishes are available from pastels to metallics.

  • Highly effective with matt or gloss foils.
  • Most foils are laser compatible.

For opaque coverage and brilliant colour, foil stamping is unparalleled. With its contrasting surface textures and shimmering highlights, foil stamping can spark excitement in a business communication and bring a static design to life.

To create a foil blocked image an ultra thin polyester film carrying a foil pigment is fed into a press. There, a die of the desired image is pressed against the application, trapping the film inbetween. As heat to the die and pressure to the application are applied, the foil or pigment is released from the film carrier and transferred to the application, forming a foil image.Example product of Foil blocking
