for anyone who's interested in seeing a hotstamp machine in action, i just posted a clip for my day-job that shows a quick glimpse of a Vibram disc being stamped with our machine. it's like a pneumatic tortilla press with a little foil conveyor belt.

figured you guys might be interested to see a die plate for a hotstamp. i can post the actual stamp (or a stamped disc) once it's released. this will be the Halloween stamp for my day job.

That's pretty cool.

So how does hot stamping work? Do they put foil over that, heat the whole thing up and literally "hot stamp" it? If that's the case, could you just put foil over a blank disc and use something kind of like a soldering iron to draw a hot stamp onto a disc?

you don't see the machine for long, but this video is of the machine i use:

basically:
big heated plate, with the stamp die attached to it.
roll of foil suspended between the disc and the plate...
machine presses down, die makes contact with foil, then foil with plastic, machine "dwells" for a determined time, then releases.
foil rolls to the next open block, put a new disc in, hit the button again.

what i didn't know till i used that machine is that there are thousands of foils, all for specific surfaces and heats. some foils work on some plastics but not others; we even have foil for specific types of paper.
