Hot stamping is not a difficult process. In fact, hot stamping foil only requires three things: a hot stamping press, a metal die, and a foil or ribbon to add color.
The press heats up the metal die and is used to exert the downward pressure needed to make the mark. Here is an example of a decorative foil stamping printer. The hot stamping die, or type, is a piece of metal that has been manufactured with a letter, number, symbol, trademark, or logo. You can see some examples of dies and type here. Foils and ribbons are solid pieces of pigmented ink on a carrier that become transferable to another surface when heated. You can see some examples here.

This basic method for hot stamping can be used to customize nearly any design or logo, inlcuding numbers or letters.
