The Kluge Foil Stamping Process

Foil Stamping

What’s a Kluge?

A Kluge is an automatic platen press used for foil stamping, embossing, debossing, letterpress printing, scoring, die cutting and numbering. We have a total of 8 Kluge’s inhouse that are constantly running. This blog is going to focus on foil stamping and die cutting on a Kluge.

I am going to walk you through the process from beginning to end. The first step is to mount the die to the platen. The platen is then heated to 250 degrees. We only use copper dies because they provide the highest quality possible.


While the press is heating up, we check for position and even impression. The foil is wound through the press and heat and pressure are adjusted based on the artwork and paper stock.

Foil Stamp Printing

Due the amount of coverage for this job, we are stamping 4-up. We would normally run a larger sheet and stamp 8-up but in this case we can’t because we are using pre-kiss cut label stock.

Then we twist the sheet and stamp the other side.

Die Cuts

As soon as the first press is up and running, we start setting up the second press for the next color. It’s important to run both colors simultaneously to make sure we are in perfect registration. The second color is run the same as the first, 4-up work and twist. It’s a little harder to see the second color – look closely for the thin gold rule.

Die Cut Printer

The next step is to set up a third press to die cut the sheets. I know I said earlier that the sheets were already kiss-cut, so why do we have to die cut? Our customer ordered individual labels not labels on a sheet and in order to give them perfect margins on the finished piece we have to die cut.

The last step is to take the sheets over to the cutter for a final trim. We just have to box these up and they are off to the customer.

The EHD Series (14x22): The Workhorse of the Industry

The EHD embodies Kluge’s history as the global go-to for foil stamping machinery. For more than a quarter-century, it has been the standard by which all presses in its class are measured. It’s even earned a nickname: “the workhorse of the industry.”

Rugged, dependable, and easy to operate, it gets the job done — excellently, consistently, and cost-effectively.

But this isn’t the same machine it was in the 20th century. We’ve made improvements commensurate with technology.

Today’s EHD offers speeds up to 3,300 impressions per hour and comes with delayed delivery, allowing it to accommodate sheets up to 17″x 24.75″ (431mm x 628mm) in size, with up to 40 square inches of die area.

EHD Series 14x22

Advanced features include:

  • Patented Delayed Dwell technology, which allows the EHD to start on impression sooner, bottom out, and remain on impression longer­ (thereby doubling impression time with no loss of production speed and assuring flawless foil separation from the stock)
  • A new, optional, freestanding mobile electronics console, which puts all the press operations in one place for easy access
  • Mechanical Foil Control System, allowing a wide array of foil draw and coverage with highly accurate registration between images
  • Many of the same advanced features found in our larger foil stamping, die-cutting, and embossing machines
  • Much More

Kluge Means Quality: Hand-Built and Backed by History

The quality of a printed product is especially important with foil stamping, die-cutting, and embossing machines. Why? Because the whole reason your customers want foil-stamped, die-cut, or embossed products in the first place is the appearance of quality. So that end goal is something we simply can’t sacrifice.

Even as we work to make our machines easy to use and cost-effective, the one value we never compromise is quality — the quality of the machine itself and the quality of the product it produces.

Indeed, quality is the reason we’ve been the leading brand in our industry since the early 1900s.

Brandtjen & Kluge, LLC began in 1907 and pioneered two game-changing machines (the Model M and Model N) in 1931. We are proud to have stayed at the forefront ever since. Today, thousands of Kluge machines are actively in use at commercial printing companies all around the world.

Each of those machines has been hand-built by an expert in printing press machinery. Your machine will be too. That’s the only way we do things at Kluge. We recognize that our machines are an investment for your company, so they ought to work like one — and last for lifetimes. That’s Kluge quality.
