Cold foil labels
Premium Metallic Gloss on
Temperature-Sensitive Labels.

Cold foil labels

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.

If you want to give your labels a standout, metallic look and need to use temperature-sensitive labeling materials, you should consider cold foil stamps. Their bright sheens grab attention, and they come in a full range of color tints. More importantly, they can give your products a premium look and feel.
