Hot Foil Printing

Hot Foiling or foil blocking as it is sometimes known is a highly attractive and permanent way of printing without the need to use ink.

Gold blocking was originally developed by ancient monks to decorate and enhance the covers of the books they painstakingly produced by hand.

Now similar effects are produced using a wide of foil materials from gold and silver to copper, metallic, matt colours and even holographic.

The results can be stunning and yet are easily achieved by complete novices using the right KOBO equipment.
