Pad Printing/ Silk Screening
Pad printing/ silk screening are ink processes which require different plates than foil stamping. Pad printing allows us to print in multiple colors. The metallic gold & silver ink is nice, but not reflective quite like a gold or silver hot stamp.
Notes about Pad Printing
- Pad printing plates are $115 each and are not a part of Box Brokers Group’s free plate program (see hot stamping section below).
- When pad printing/ silk screening ink dries, it is permanent.
- Box Brokers Group can PMS Pantone color match your logo to your store colors for a one-time ink mixing fee of $125.
- If the printing surface is suede or leatherette, in most cases we suggest pad printing.

Hot Stamping/ Foil Stamping
Foil stamping and hot stamping are the same process, which involves heating a plate to 270 degrees, then pressing the logo into the the surface of the item being printed, to transfer the logo.
Foil stamping is very popular in the jewelry industry as your logo turns out metallic, however, there are limits to this method.
Notes about Hot Stamping:
- Hot stamping plates are $50 each.
- With an initial order of $500 of merchandise, Box Brokers will wave up to 3 plate fees if given 5 weeks to process your initial order (reorders typically take 10-14 days).
- Foil stamping is a semi-permanent print process that can rub off over time.
- If the printing surface is satin or paper, in most cases we suggest hot stamping.
- If your logo is simple, without small verbiage, thin lines or intricacies, then it can most likely be hot stamped on any surface.
