As our machines are very robustly built, thankfully, they will not fall apart.

Below is an example of a Hebrew font we engraved for our customer overseas. ​
  • 10) Is the foil printing process completly dry?
    Absolutely! It takes just a second or so to print and the product can be handled immediately after printing. We do not use any ink with foil printing as the colour of print is actually dictated by the colour of foil we use - eg. Metallic Gold, Metallic Silver, Metallic Red etc. You can also buy foil in matt, multi-colour finish as well as holographic. Not many are aware of this, but you can also print foil on top of foil to create some stunning effects!
  • 11) Will the foil come off at all once printed?
    In principle, the answer is ‘No’. However, some surfaces may require a different grade of foil for longevity or durability of the print eg. grainy leather etc. You can talk to your local foil supplier for suggestions as foils can be made available in many grades depending what surface you intend to print onto. You will find that often, you may even be able to send them a sample of your product for them to test for foil suitability and recommend the correct grade of foil for your needs. We only supply general purpose foils because we do not know what you intend to print onto. Whilst we are experts in our machines we do not claim to be experts on all grades of foils and substrates. If our foil does not work well on your substrate, then you will need to liaise with foil suppliers to address any such issues. If the print does not adhere to you surface, then it is not necessarily the machine that is at fault but the incorrect grade of foil. Foils can also wear off over a period of time, especially if the print rubs against other items such as key fobs. This is to be expected.
  • 12) Can I deboss onto leather without using foil?
    Yes you can depending on the type of leather you are embossing, temperature, dwell time and the amount of hand pressure applied.
  • 13) Why are your machines cheaper than others on the market?
    Basically, we keep our overheads low and run an efficient system here as well as employing economies of scale. By manufacturing machine parts in larger volumes, we keep our costs down and this helps us to pass on the savings to our customers. Our hot foil stamping machines are manufactured with over 36 years of experience behind us, we are the oldest and most established company in the UK. Therefore, not only do you benefit from competitive prices but also from our expertise. It's a win-win situation for our customers.
  • 14) Could the machine be faulty if I am not achieving a good quality print?
    Our machine is mostly a mechanical device with a built in thermostat. If the light on the thermostat is clicking on/off and the chase/die holding block is very hot to touch, then in principle, the machine is working and not considered faulty. In order to achieve a good quality print, you MUST read and fully understand the Instruction Manual and watch the Training DVD in full as these contain lots of useful hints and tips. If these are ignored, then this could result in you not using the machine correctly, which in turn could lead to a lot of time wastage for both, you and us. If the machine in genuinely faulty, we will of course always be willing to have it back here subject to our T&C's
  • 15) Do you accept returns or refunds?
