Design and make your own hot foil polymer plates

The UV Ultra MK3 hot foil plate making machine is the ideal solution when you want the flexibility to make your own polymer plates for hot foil printing - but without spending a fortune. (Not suitable for debossing and certain surfaces. Some experience is required to make good quality polymer plates - thus not suitable for those who want instant results - in which case we would encourage you to get magnesium  dies made by an outside source or brass dies from us).

Don’t worry, we won’t pressure you with a sales pitch if you call - but we will offer you clear and honest advice on whether a polymer plate maker is right for you.  There are lots of factors that will impact the quality if your finished polymer plate (and hence the final printed output) including artwork, exposure time, washing out, foil grade, print temperature etc. All of these are controlled by the user, but we will advise how to proceed if you would like. It is also important to know that in some cases a polymer plate is not suitable and a metal or brass die will be required.

Finally .... did you know?

Did you know that you can also use the UV Ultra MK3 to make plates for the Pad Printing Process too! If you are looking to buy the Foilcraft 4x3 (and the UV Ultra MK3 Plate Maker) to print onto promotional gift items, then you may also wish to look at our low cost pad printing machine - full details can be found on our other website by clicking here.

Thus, with the UV Ultra, not only will you be able to make your own polymer hot foil plates but also plates for pad printing too!

The Pad Printing Process will allow you to print onto flat and non-flat items such as round pens, golf balls etc. The hot foil printing process is only suitable for flat surfaces as described elsewhere on this website. Therefore, by combining the hot foil and pad printing process, you will be able to cover a much wider market and offer your customers a much wider choice too!
