Print & Embellishment

 

Embossing Dies

 

We produce embossing dies for the printing and embellishment industries.  Embossing give the paper a 'raised' effect.  Greeting cards, business cards, dvd covers, concert programs, to name a few are commonly embossed.
 
We produce embossing dies 2 ways.  Flat embossing with different levels can be engraved on our CNC machine.  More complicated designs, especially those with a sculptured effect, need to be engraved by hand.  Understandably, hand engraving is more specialised and time consuming.

Types of Embossing

 

Blind Emboss

 

Embossing can be done with or without a printed image.  Those that have a specific printed image need to 'register' - which means the engraved image needs to be to scale and in the correct place for the image to be printed on top.
 
A 'blind' emboss doesn't need to register and the overall design is embossed...

Foil Emboss

These dies can also be made to 'register' or can be a 'blind' emboss.  A foil is the metallic look on the print.  Not all foils, such as flat foil stamps, are raised.
 
'She' dies are embossing dies raised with a foil keyline.

Material For Embossing Dies

For prints that only have a 'short run', i.e. are used for a limited time, then discarded such as wedding invitations and greeting cards, we use magnesium.
 
For 'long term' prints a more durable material such as brass.  It allows printing companies to re-use them.  DVD covers, wine labels and business cards tend to be made in brass.
The majority of our counterparts are made from fibreglass.
 
Long run prints can also have a die made with duplicated images, so as the printer may print more than one at a time.
