Foil Stamper Guide

Foil stampers are ideal for printing text and logos onto books, pencils, matchbooks, napkins, photographs, ribbons and more.

Foil stamping is used by the wedding industry for photos and napkins, the office supply industry for books and pencils, churches for printing on scriptures and schools for printing on yearbooks and more.

There are several uses for a foil stamper. Many people purchase foil stamping systems for their own custom foil stamping business, stamping a wide variety of products.

Foil stampers are available in a wide variety of sizes and formats for different styles and volumes of printing. Both manual and pneumatic (air powered) foil stampers are available.

Things to consider before purchasing a foil stamper.

What do you need to stamp?
Be sure to take into consideration what you will need to stamp and what your future volume may be. There is nothing worse than purchasing a foil stamping system, only to discover a year down the road that it will not handle the jobs you need to do. There are also several different attachments for foil stamping a wide variety of products. A few of these are pencil attachments for stamping pencils, a match attachment for stamping on matchbooks and a right-angle platform gauge.

What style of foil stamper should you choose?
Determine where you will want to put the foil stamper. Make sure you have room. We sell countertop models and floor models. Typically, the larger the machine the higher the volume it can handle. We sell manual foil stampers that can stamp as fast as you can pull the handle. We also sell pneumatic foil stampers that stamp with the push of a button.

Foil stampers are also available with different type holders. The type holder is what holds the lettering or logo to the machine. Type holders are available in different sizes, depending on how much lettering you will need to use. The type holders are adjustable. A salesperson should be able to help you pick the correct model for your needs.

Pneumatic Foil Stamper
Pneumatic foil stampers use an air compressor to bring the print head down to the object being stamped. This is done with the push of a button .Pneumatic foil stampers are ideal for large jobs. Manual foil stampers will wear out your arm over time, where a pneumatic foil stamper can keep working for hours on end.

Foil Fuser
The foil fuser, much like a foil stamper, creates foil lettering and graphics. Foil fusers use a roll of foil that adheres to printer toner. Toner can be found in laser copiers and most copy machines. Create text or graphics on your computer and print them out. Take the printed copy and run it through a foil fuser. The foil will fuse directly to toner. The finished product looks very nice and professional. Many of our customers use foil fusers for business cards, certificates, wedding invitations and more.
