Real metal in digital printing – from lot size of 1

Easy and efficient.

DIGITAL METAL® combines digital printing with coating- and metal-transfer
process to create metallized surfaces, even for small runs or individual prints
such as personalizations.

Create new effects with ease.

  • The specified design is printed directly onto the substrate with toner or electro-ink
  • The foil is applied onto the preprinted material
  • After detaching carrier film, the metallized coating layers remain on the toner/electro-ink
  • Overprinting in digital or offset printing
  • Flawless enhancement results without deformation of substrate

Product category: Foils for cold foil transfer

Coldfoil makes many things possible

Cold foil technology can be flexibly integrated into any printing process. The cold foil is simply applied as a "fifth color” to the print image. This opens up many new design possibilities.

Overprinting offers free choice of colors

The base color is usually silver. The cold foil can then be overprinted with any process colors or other colors. An astonishing variety of new metallic color tones can be created in this manner.

Interaction of ink and foil

Cold foiling allows precise registration, just as with offset printing. The foil can therefore be transferred in register with the printed image. Both the foil and the overprinted colors can be rasterized to produce novel color and metallic effects. Cold foils offer a high gloss level, even for coarse rasters (25l/cm). The foil releases cleanly at surface coverages of 40 to 100%.

Designs and surfaces

The design possibilities are virtually unlimited. Many things can be achieved:

  • filigree patterns,
  • fine lines and lettering down to approx. 6 pt
  • any kind of partial coverage
  • full surface foil transfer
  • small recesses
  • half tones and screens
  • fine registration marks, e.g. crosshairs

Holographic elements

Cold foils are also available in holographic designs. Large-area diffractive structures or single images can be selected. Besides shiny metallic foils, there are also a range of transparent holographic foils to choose from.

Cold foil and tactility

Relief embossing cannot be performed concurrently with the cold foil transfer process. The foil can, however, be raised or lowered by means of blind embossing in a second work operation.

Hot Stamping Foils

With its foil product families LUXOR®/ALUFIN®, LIGHT LINE®, COLORIT®, and TRUSTSEAL® as well as Holograms, KURZ, who has been a competent partner in the hot stamping field for many years now, is able to offer two comprehensive design product families to meet the needs of both processors and designers.

Packaging means adding value. Enhancing the product and its packaging separates you from the competition. Where products and contents are becoming increasingly homogeneous, the incorporation of hot stamping foil in a package design will greatly increase the product's shelf appeal thereby attracting the buyer's attention.

Consider the packaging currently used in spritis, cosmetics, and certain food packagings. Metallized hot stamping foils from KURZ, in gold, silver and a variety of colors are available for use with many products.

Whether high value cosmetic packaging, spritis and certain food packagings, the range of applications for the graphics industry is bound only by your imagination. KURZ foils are engineered specifically for the demands ranging from small to large volume production.

Product category: Holographic foils

Holograms for your successful brand management

Holograms - design elements with changing optical images - from KURZ provide

an attractive and cost-effective way to enhance your product. Various techniques

are available to customise the hologram to your market requirements. At the same

time the product becomes more difficult to counterfeit. The hologram is thus an

effective means of strengthening brand identity.


KURZ holograms are produced in the form of hot stamping foil, laminating foil, self-adhesive labels, tear stripes, or other project-specific formats.


KURZ offers customized solutions for single-image and continuous designs.

The KURZ design team provide their extensive experience in creation of

holographic images to brand owners.
