Hot Stamping Foils

Luxurious Brilliance



ITW has developed hot foil formulations specifically designed to meet all the challenges of substrates, design and production. Whether used off-line or with rotary stamping equipment, our foils produce a crisp, durable impression and provide the highest quality finished product with a superior level of shine and brilliance. With a wide array of brilliant silvers, golds, and colors as well as eye-catching stock and custom holographic foil patterns, ITW Foils is also a key partner when it comes to the critical custom color matching required by certain brands. In addition, ITW I.KELA brand hot foil flat dies, emboss dies and brass cylinders deliver the same quality, consistency and reliability that our customers rely on daily.
