Hot Foil Printing
The ‘chromed’ material is heated by a former Made to fit the contours and The line sticks to painted casting or glazing. It is a heated version of bare metal foil I guess. Ixo use it on premium lines and reserve silver Tampo printing for partworks and cheaper ranges like white box.
I’m sure someone can provide a more technical description.
