Short-run printing – also with variable data
Foil stamping in digital printing is particularly suitable for printing short runs and variable data. Why? Because there are no high basic costs, as our professional digital printing press with inline foiling processes the print data directly and produces the finished print product. Short runs with variable data for personalisation or numbering are therefore also possible without any problems – not only in colour, but also with metallic foil.
Metal foil for more counterfeit protection
For some printed matter it is important that it is as forgery-proof as possible. These include, for example, admission tickets, vouchers, deeds, certificates and testimonials. The best way to protect against manipulation is to implement several security features during print production. These can be individual watermarks, hidden lettering for automatic marking of copies, codes or numbering. With our modern digital printing, we can number or personalise important documents inexpensively with metal foil – and equip them with additional security features.
Hologram foil for special effects
Hologram foils are available with different structures that make effective use of the wave character of light. The endless holograms on hologram foils have the advantage that they can be placed freely. As security strips, they are a cost-effective security element for marking important documents. These include ID cards, certificates, admission tickets, warranty documents, expert opinions, vouchers, product markings, securities and certificates. Numbering with hologram foil is also a useful option to prevent forgery attempts.
Papers for digital foil embossing
The quality of digital foil embossing depends on the nature of the substrate. The quality is better on smooth paper than on rough uncoated paper. The reason for this is that on uncoated paper with a rough surface, the printed black toner itself does not form a flat surface. Therefore, the film cannot adhere to the toner in all places, resulting in an uneven appearance with black areas without film. However, this structure can in some cases create an effect that harmonises with the printed product. Particularly suitable are matt or glossy coated image printing papers as well as preferably smooth uncoated papers.
