Forming & Foil Stamping

What is the difference between debossing and embossing?
Embossing is an elevated image, while debossing is a recessed image.

What is foil stamping?
Foil stamping is the application of a special polyester foil.

What materials can be formed?
Polycarbonate, paper, polyester and light gauge metals are materials typically formed using an embossing or debossing die.

When should I apply heat to a forming die?
Materials that cannot be formed require heat to insure that the form is retained after the process. Polycarbonate is a cold formable sub-straight while polyester requires heat for proper form retention.
