Foil Blankets / Printers Blankets
Foil Blankets are a range of printers blankets that are not only used in offset / litho printing; some of the blankets are also suited to foil stamping, especially when you’re foiling over large surface areas. The hard-wearing, consistently flat, yet forgiving “memory-like” surfaces of some blankets are ideal as great makeready materials. Two blankets in particular aid the reduction of pinholing on your foiling (bad spots) and the extra grip of Lablay, the blue print base blanket is ideal when foiling slippery label surfaces. A brilliant benefit of foil blankets is that they often retain their shape and are hardwearing. Due to the “self-leveling” abilities of the blankets they can often provide a good solid base when foiling larger areas by providing a consistent surface and level pressure. This will help reduce makeready times by not having to waste time with patching up spotty foil areas.
