If you are looking to add a visually compelling component to a graphic arts project, then it is time to take advantage of Sipe Steel Rule Die, Inc., foil stamping and embossing services. Foil stamping and/or embossing are both great ways to add style and flair to packages, promotional materials, POP displays, and presentation folders

The foil stamping process uses a heated copper die to fuse foil onto paper, bonding the design to the surface. It's a great way to add texture and make specific text or images stand out. Foils come in a wide variety of colors and metallics, with shiny, satin, or matte finishes, we also offer a variety of special effect holographic and refractive foils. The embossing process uses a brass or copper die, and high pressure to form a raised three-dimensional impression. By utilizing brass dies, we can create multiple levels of embossing by raising the paper to different heights. Embossing can be used on its own or in combination with foil stamping to make an impressive visual impact.

We are equipped with presses rated at up to 250 tons and handle sheet sizes up to 29.5" x 41.3" with stamping area ranging from 29.5" x 41.3" to 14.5" x 17.7". Able to process up to 40,000 sheets per day, we work within 2-4 day lead times. Our membership in the Foil Stamping and Embossing Association assures you that we achieve the highest level of quality.
