Magnesium Dies for Hot Foil Stamping & Printing

Colourfoil brings years of experience to every die we produce and we take pride in our reputation for high quality etching.

Colourfoil manufactures magnesium dies for hotfoil stamping. Dies are made to your individual specifications, from your artworks, hand finished and checked before dispatch.

Magnesium dies are primarily used for flat foil stamped images and flat single or multi-level embossed or debossed images. Magnesium is the softest material for metal dies and the least expensive of our range, ideal for shorter runs or where a fast service is required. Because magnesium is very quick to etch we can give our fastest turn-around time on these dies. Typically we dispatch on the same day as receiving your artwork (via email) on orders received before 12 noon (Mon-Fri, UK time).

Each die is hand finished by our skilled technicians.

We can accept artworks in various electronic formats via email as well hard copy, see our artwork page for more details. Please contact our sales team to discuss your requirements and to find out how to transfer your artwork to us. An individual price will be given for each job based on the materials & complexity.

Colourfoil also produce high quality machined brass dies for fine printing and longer print runs. See our brass dies page for more details.
