Why the Hot Stamping of Italbond

We are among the few in Italy to be able to print single-image holograms in register.

An ancient stamping technique rich in added value.

This is the technique that most immediately evokes the idea of ennobling because it allows you to create graphics with a high visual impact. This finishing technique has its origins in the manual application of a gold leaf for decorative purposes. The hot stamping process is obtained through the application of metallized, holographic or neutral films on the predominantly paper-based support through the use of a cliché.

It is a finish that never loses its added value because it has followed the evolving demands of the graphic market and today offers new metallic and pastel colors and a wide range of holographic designs. It’s furthermore to combine this finish with other printing techniques for a final result that can significantly increase the added value of the printed product.

We are among the few in Italy to be able to print single-image holograms in register, thanks to a device that positions the hologram exactly in the area of the sheet where you want it to be printed. This technology can be used for the creation of security holograms, increasingly requested by Brands.

This technology allows you to create graphics with high visual impact finishes with a wide variety of colors and effects in addition to the more classic gold and silver metallics.
