Cold foil labels are used to apply a lustrous shimmer to delicate or heat-sensitive label materials. A strong alternative to hot foil labels, they are made with an on-press application that transfers a thin sheet of foil onto label material using cold printing plates and a UV curing lamp
Where you’ll find cold foil labels
During the printing process, hot foil labels can damage temperature-sensitive substrates, such as plastic films and non-porous materials, during the stamping process. Cold foil labels provide metallic touches where hot foil stamping isn’t possible. You can find cold foil labels on plastic beverage bottles, household goods, fine foods, pressure-sensitive sticker labels and many other products packages.
