Why Hot Stamp/Heat Transfer?

Hot stamp, traditional heat transfer and Polyfuze heat transfer are attractive options for appliance applications as dry processes that simplify product decoration and eliminate concerns over voids and other common decoration challenges.

Specific Benefits

Hot stamp is a cost-effective technique that provides superior performance with metallic foils.

Heat transfer offers precision single and multi-color matching and excellent durability. Durability is achieved in traditional heat transfer with the application of an extra clear coat and in Polyfuze heat transfer through material bonding.

Hot Stamp

  • Cost effective
  • Strong performance for gold & silver metallic foil

Heat Transfer

  • Precision color matching (single or multi-color)
  • Ability to add extra clear coat for superior durability
