      We do both Letterpress and hot foil stamping. We have a large collection of type and set aside 2 cabinets for hot type because the type is heavily worn by hot stamping and eventually ruined. We keep our Letterpress type separate. For custom plates used in hot stamping, we pay the extra few dollars for copper dies rather than magnesium and we bond temporarily to an aluminium base with heat tape.

      Subject: [PPLetterpress] Hot metal type

      A customer of ours needs some hot metal type. I found a place in San Francisco (M&H) that
      does it, but is there somewhere in the midwest still doing it.

      The customer wants to use it for foil stamping. Does doing hot foil stamping with lead type
      make sense? We make hot foil stamping dies, but we treasure our fingers too much to try
      cutting out dies of individual letters/numbers at 12 pt.
