Foil stamping, or hot stamping, was first recorded in Germany by Ernest Oeser in 1892. In a hot stamping machine, a die is mounted and heated, with the product to be stamped placed beneath it. A metallized or painted roll-leaf carrier is inserted between the two, and the die presses down through it. The dry paint or foil used is impressed into the surface of the product.
