Foil Stamping or Hot Stamp Dies
Magnesium plates that are used for printing with foil.
Laser Engraving

Letterpress Plates
Magnesium plates that are used for printing, imprinting, and crash printing.
A Metalphoto image begins its life much the same as a regular photograph. The artwork is transferred to the metal by way of a negative or positive that is developed, fixed, and washed. It then goes into a sealing tank where the design is actually embedded into the metal. The process creates a scratch-proof image that is highly durable.
Sandblasting or Sand Carving
The product is carved using silicone sand. This technique creates a recessed image.
