Foil Stamping NYC

Professional Foil Stamping in New York City

Foil stamping, also known as letterpress foil stamping, is a versatile finishing technique that gives projects a lustrous surface finish. Foil stamping involves applying either a metallic or pigmented foil to the surface of a printed project in order to enhance the overall appearance and add a creative element to printed projects.

There are multiple types of foil printing available, and our team at Thomas Group Printing can help you choose the best finishing technique for your next project.

The Foil Stamping Process

Traditional foil stamping involves etching a design onto a metal plate called a foiling die, similar to a rubber stamp. Once the design is on the die, the die is heated up and a thin layer of foil is placed between the die and the substrate. The die is then used to apply pressure to the foil and the printed surface, which causes the foil to permanently adhere to the paper in the shape of the etched design.

It’s possible to have multiple colors of foil during hot stamping services. To achieve this, multiple dies need to be made for each color and several runs of the press foiling machine are required to create the final design. Foils can also range from gloss metallics to matte finish depending on the level of shine desired. Foil stamping can add an additional element of professionalism and design to projects such as book covers and point of purchase materials including table tents, counter displays, and floor displays.

Types of Foils Used

Different types of foil can achieve different effects depending on the specifications of the project. Some of the most popular types of foils are:

  • Metalized foil. This material creates a shiny, metallic finish during the foil stamping process, with gold foil printing and silver being the most popular choices. 
  • Pearl foil is commonly used on wedding invitations and greeting cards for a pearlescent shine 
  • Holographic foil can produce 3D or rainbow-colored patterns and can be an ideal option for ID cards, credit cards, and print jobs that require security seals
  • Effects foils usually have multiple colored tones or patterns such as sparkles, stripes, and light diffractions
  • Scratch-Off foils are meant to be only temporarily adhered to the surface and are meant to conceal sensitive information. This type of foil is commonly found on lottery tickets and phone cards. 

The type of foil stamping that’s best for your project will depend on many factors, and we’re here to help you plan your project to perfection every step of the way.

It's always a perk to be able to work with a family-owned business, but the Thomas Group sets themselves apart from the competition on so many other levels. From the moment I reached out with questions through the point of having our newsprints in-hand, Rory was incredibly polite, timely, and accommodating in all requests. The cost was more than fair and the color and paper quality were excellent. I will definitely go to the Thomas group for future projects and recommend them to anyone in need of newsprint-style printing.

With an industry conference coming up in 10 days in Manhattan, I needed to print 125 copies of a book I'd written. Rory and Thomas Group came through -- we had a couple back and forths over email and they got the books printed in 3-4 days, well in advance.I took a redeye to Newark, picked up the books from their office, then headed to the event, and it was a big success. Thank you!

In an age when printers are closing up left and right, Thomas Group Printing is standing strong and was able to offer my company, Ideal Jaocobs Corp, competitive pricing, fast turn around time, and a high quality product with ease. We ask a lot from our suppliers because we demand a lot from ourselves for our customers. It's very much appreciated when those we partner with share the same values.

In printing a Lookbook, Thomas Group Printing has exceeded our expectations. The final product was beautiful and such a hit with our company. Rory was our main point of contact and he was responsive and helpful from beginning to end. We have decided to use them a second time after such a great first experience. Will definitely continue to use them in the future and cannot recommend them enough.

This is a solid NYC company that just knows what they're doing. They helped me out with a very last minute order for film posters and made the experience completely stress free, recommending the appropriate paper, and offering a courier service to the theater. Great communication, quick turnaround and quality product.
