Foil printing, also known as foil stamping, is a specialised technique that enhances printed
materials with a metallic or pigmented foil.

The process involves creating a design, preparing a metal die, applying adhesive to the material, and placing a roll of thin foil over designated areas.Through heat and pressure, the foil adheres to the adhesive, creating a visually striking and luxurious effect. This process is renowned for its ability to add elegance and sophistication to your labels.

Embossing / Debossing

Embossing and debossing are intricate printing techniques that elevate the tactile and visual appeal of printed materials. In embossing, a raised pattern or design is achieved by pressing the material against a die, creating a three-dimensional effect that captivates both the eye and the fingertips. On the other hand, debossing involves pressing the material down, creating a sunken or recessed impression. These techniques not only add a refined texture to your labels but also provide a subtle yet impactful way to communicate quality and sophistication.


Thermographic inks are responsive to temperature changes. This process unveils a hidden message or design as the print reacts to varying temperatures.

Perfect for chilled beverage labels, these inks not only enhance visual appeal but also introduce an interactive element. As the temperature drops, they become semi-transparent, revealing concealed prints and secondary colours underneath.

This precise process adds a tactile and visual dimension, capturing attention and elevating the overall aesthetic of your printed materials. Whether it’s highlighting logos, text, or intricate designs, spot UV printing allows you to create a luxurious and polished look that sets your brand apart.

Holographic foil

Holographic foiling infuses your labels with a spectrum of colours and dynamic visual effects that shift and change as the viewing angle varies.
