Hot stamps

A selection of hot stamps for disc golf discs by Leanne Fulton.

These hot stamps for disc golf discs are a selection of custom illustrations I’ve created over the years. Manufacturers take the designs and etch them onto a metal die. The die is heated up, and the foil is placed between the die and the surface of the disc. The foil bonds to the disc, producing a metallic effect. Many times the results are unexpected, but they’re always beautiful.

 

Hot stamps for disc golf discs are a time-honoured way to build community, a sense of pride and history in a club or commemorate an event. They can become collectible and often increase in value over time because each run is a limited edition. Manufacturers take the designs and etch them onto a metal die. The die is heated up, and the foil is placed between the die and the surface of the disc. The foil bonds to the disc, producing a metallic effect.
