Foiling, embossing and debossing adds an enhanced look and feel to any product be it a business card, invitation, brochure, book or report cover.

We utilise original Heidelberg Platens to produce all our foiling, embossing or debossing work using either copper or brass dies to transfer foil via heat or to create blind embossed or debossed effects.

There are varying types of dies we use and these can be combined with a counterforce to create embossed and debossed effects, below are a some of the standard options we have available. If you would like to use any of these processes please don’t hesitate to get in touch, we can offer advise on what is possible using these techniques and where there can be potential quality issues.
