    The lift off lid rigid box above has the gold foil stamping for the square shape. After the gold foil finish is done, the black foil finish is applied for the black text log and brand. For the inner neck of the bottom base box, it is wrapped with the gold metallic paperboard. With the matte pink soft touch finish outside, the rigid paper box packaging provides a very fantastic visual effect of luxury.

    The foil can be almost any color. The foil films comes in rolls in a wide assortment of colors, finishes, and optical effects. The gold foil, silver foil, copper foil and holographic foil stamping are the most common.

    Also, foil stamping can go together with embossing and debossing finish, soft touch, or spot UV finish to create a more striking 3D image by sharing a pair of positive plate and negative plate. The bronze plate and copper plate are the most common plates.

    Foil Stamping Process

    The foil stamping can be divided into 2 types, the hot foil stamping and cold foil stamping.

    Hot Foil Stamping

    In the hot foil stamping process, the sculpted metal plate comes in contact with the foil film under external pressure and heat, then the foil color is transferred to the intended paperboard. Temperature, pressure and speed are 3 important factors to achieve a good foil effect.

    Cold Foil Stamping

    As a leading China paper box supplier, we can also do the cold foil stamping on the printed paper boxes and custom corrugated boxes. In the cold foil stamping process, there are 4 main steps:

    • First, the UV-curable adhesive is printed onto the paperboard using standard printing plates. This adhesive is a special type of glue that can be dried instantly using ultraviolet light, similar to printing an image with ink. The adhesive is used to print the graphic design of the foil effect onto the custom paper box.
    • Next, the foil film is nipped onto the printed adhesive.
    • The paperboard is then exposed to UV light, which causes the adhesive to cure and become tacky. The foil corresponding to the adhesive area sticks to the tacky adhesive area on the paperboard, creating a bright, shining foil effect on the printed paper box.
    • Finally, any foil that does not adhere to the adhesive remains on the thin polyester liner of the foil film, which is directed to a rewind spool.

    Most corrugated mailer boxes , E flute corrugated boxes, straight tuck end paper boxes, lift off lid rigid boxes and sliding rigid boxes have the foil stamping finish too.

    Foil Stamping Colors

    The common metallic foil has a metal-like sheen and gives a shiny and shimmering look to the foil stamped design on the custom paper box. Such foil is available in different metal shades such as gold, rose gold, glossy silver, matte silver, bronze, and copper. Just to name a few.
