Kluge Foil Stamping Machines Do It Better… And Here’s the Real-World Proof
As makers of print finishing equipment, we’re big believers in the whole idea of “You have to see it to believe it.”
Kluge foil stamping automatic platen presses have been leading the print industry for generations, including the current generation, where Instagram is all the rage. In fact, some of our customers and clients have even started using an Instagram hashtag to capture their Kluge-printed pride.
Be sure to join in our #madeonakluge campaign by using the hashtag #madeonakluge when you post to Instagram videos of your Kluge running applications. We will share as many videos as we can to our stories!
The following are five #madeonakluge foil stamping applications that are positively Insta-Worthy:
#1: There’s no peach like a Georgia peach.
Public Print Co. is a Kansas City-based print finishing company known for eye-popping paper goods. They specialize in foil stamping, die-cutting, letterpress printing, embossing, and screen printing on flat stock. Customers send them digital files, and they take it from there, working their design magic to achieve the ultimate “wow the end user” goal.
That’s a goal we share here at Kluge, which is why we we’re proud to see one of Public Print Co.’s products recently featured as a Top Post on Instagram:
This coupon book for The Peach Truck — a mobile fruit & veggie store that takes home-grown Georgia peaches all across the country — just screams, “Southern summer with class.”
And what’s that hashtag we see? Ah, yes #madeonakluge. Just as we expected.
You know, Kluge foil stamping presses are a little like a Georgia peach. Sure, you can pick a peach somewhere else, but there’s no substitute for the real thing. Kluge presses do it best.
#2: We look good in jeans.
Mos Mosh is a super chic Danish brand best known for its super comfortable, well-tailored denim jeans. Their new catalog is an eye-catcher, courtesy of Denmark’s ReklameTryk Herning, one of Denmark’s go-to suppliers of fine printed goods.

Vi har endnu en gang fået sendt nogle utrolig flotte kataloger af sted til @mosmosh_official 🚛 Den grafiske kreativitet har fået frit løb med bl.a. garnhæftet åben ryg, 3 forskellige papirkvaliteter samt udsøgt guld folie tryk både på omslag og inde i kataloget 📒💫 #reklametryk #mosmosh #trykkeri #catalogue #foilstamping #goldfoilprint #print #danishdesign #grafiskdesign #graphicdesign #paperlove #madeonakluge
The Mos Mosh catalog sports an open back and some high-quality photography, not to mention an exquisite gold foil tap (both on the cover and inside). And yep, it was #madeonaKluge.
Using a Kluge foil stamping press is kind of like buying the right pair of jeans. When you find a perfect fit, it shows.
#3: Rock and roll, baby!
From the time they tore up the radio with “Smokin’ in the Boys Room” and “Girls, Girls, Girls” to the chart-topping success of “Without You” and “Dr. Feelgood,” hard-rock band Mötley Crüe established themselves as a staple of the ’80s.
Now their legendary contributions to rock & roll history are being chronicled in an all-new coffee table book by Danish superfan Tommy Foldrup… and the colorful cover comes from none other than ReklameTryk Herning (the same Danish print house that made Mos Mosh’s jeans look so good).
What could be more fitting for a glam metal band than some truly glamorous metal foil stamping? This larger-than-life hardcover book features mat sizing and a red foil pressure imprint, all thanks to one of Kluge’s automatic platen press.
Hey, we might not make guitars, but maybe we’re a little bit rock & roll after all. It just goes to show there’s no limit to what can be #madeonakluge.
#4: You might even say our foil stamping presses are heavenly.
Speaking of rock, we want to give a shout-out to Punkrock Printer in Central Valley, CA. They used a Kluge foil stamping press to create this stunningly celestial greeting card for one of their clients last holiday season.
“The silver foil looks killer on the black/blue background,” writes Punkrock impresario Noah Randumb.
We agree. It’s downright divine. And #madeonakluge.
#5: Luxury prints for a luxury brand… for luxury cars.
Bunker Creative designed these stylish invitations and sleeves for luxury brand Lordes, which specializes in high-end, climate-controlled, ultra-secure car storage. “Garagestyles of the rich and famous,” you might say.

Kluge Foil Stamping Automatic Platen Presses: Built by Hand, Backed by History
Customers like foil stamping because it lends an appearance of quality, so we believe the foil stamping press itself needs to be high-quality too.
Here at Kluge, quality is one value we never compromise — even as we work to make our presses cost-effective and easy to use.
Quality, of course, is the reason we’ve been the leading brand in our industry since the early 1900s. Today, thousands of Kluge presses are actively in use at commercial printing businesses all around the planet.
Each of those presses were hand-built by an expert in printing press machinery. And if you add Kluge to your print floor, your press will be too. That’s the only way we do things here.
We recognize that our foil stamping presses are an investment for your company, so they ought to operate like one — and last for lifetimes. That’s Kluge quality.
