Nothing says "Best Seller" like Foil Stamping.
Foil stamping is the application of metallic foil to paper using a heated custom-made die. It adds shimmer and richness to highlight specific text or images on your cover. We offer silver, gold, red metallic, blue metallic, white gloss, and black gloss options for our foil hot stamping. But keep in mind: the photos on this page just can't do it justice ... you really have to see the finished product to fully appreciate the beauty of Foil Hot Stamping services.

After you've sketched out your cover design, simply draw an imaginary rectangle around the area to be foil stamped. Measuring in inches, multiply width x height to get the square inches.
So if your imaginary rectangle is 5" wide and 3" tall, your die size will be 5 x 3 = 15 square inches.
If it's 2" wide and 8" tall, your die will be 2 x 8 = 16 square inches.
If it's 8" wide and 10" tall, your die will be 8 x 10 = 80 square inches.
Please note these restrictions: Foil stamping is only available on hard cover books with cloth or leather covers. If you're interested in metallic foil for other book types, check out our Diamond 3D Foil - this is a raised metallic foil that's even more versatile (and more cost-effective) than hotstamping. While Foil hotstamping is only for our cloth covers, Diamond 3D Foil can be applied to dust jackets, paperback book covers, spiral coil book covers, or saddle-stitched book covers!
