Cold Foil Stamped Name Cards VS Hot Foil Stamped Name Cards

    Cold Foil Stamped Name Cards VS Hot Foil Stamped Name Cards

    Cold Foil Stamped Name Cards VS Hot Foil Stamped Name Cards
    When clients seek the professional name card design services from other corporations, there are often several options available for their consideration. Two of these options would be to either hot foil stamp their very best name card design or to cold foil stamp them, and since the two sound closely similar, it can be hard to discern which is the best option. Here are some factors to consider when it comes to foil stamping name cards:

    1. Transference

    Both hot foil stamping and cold foil stamping are used for the same functions. However, the methods of their transference can differ. Hot foil stamping makes use of heat and pressure that is applied to the surface of your name card whereas cold foil stamping is used by way of a flat application. While they achieve the same purpose, their results can be different from one another.

    1. Speed

    If you are running on a tight schedule, then cold foil stamping might be the option to choose since it is mostly faster than hot stamping since it is applied on press before inking. Since there are no dies involved, overall manufacturing costs are reduced. Hot foil stamping take up more time since heat and pressure has to be applied to the name card material until the desired effect takes place.

    1. Visual

    When it comes to reflectiveness, improvements to cold foil stamping on name cards have been made so that both of the methods can achieve the same level of reflectiveness. However, if you want a more realistic 3D effect or something that leaves more to the touch, then hot foil stamping is what you want since cold foil stamped name cards are usually flat to the touch.

    1. Colour

    When it comes to colour range, cold foil stamped name cards still have a greater number of colour shades as compared to it’s hot foil counterpart, though it’s catching up. So if your name cards make use of a colour gradient, you may want to use cold foil stamped name cards instead.

    1. Coverage

    The effects of foil stamping relies on the coverage as well. If you only want the foil effect on a small more concentrated area, then hot foil stamping would be a lot better. But if you have a lot of surface area to cover or big areas where precision is highly required, then cold foil stamping is ideal.

    With this knowledge in mind, you will be able to choose between these foil options easily and pick up on what you want based on what you actually need. If you are feeling particularly experimental, you can try both on two separate samples and gauge the end product yourself.
