To ensure a great hot foil blocking or debossing finish on a thicker material (diaries are the perfect example) a deep etched die will be required. The die needs to find a level surface within the substrate without creating additional foiled marks around the edge of the image – this can be achieved with a deep etched die.
We deep etch dies in magnesium or brass depending on your requirement, and we etch standard dies to 1.2mm but with deep etch we will go any depth (up to 3mm) to ensure you get your desired result.
The main benefits of Deep Etched Dies:
- For use on thicker or softer subsrates
- Ideal for hot foiling and debossing
- Will leave a clear impression
- Suitable for bookbinders and stationers
- Excellent for foiling on a diary
All our foil blocking and embossing/debossing dies are made in-house by our highly experienced staff and modern facilities. Our dispatch time for standard dies will always be within 48 hours of receipt of artwork.
