Deluxe HB with hand set type.Deluxe HB with silver metallic custom die embossing.Foil Embossing Considerations

Foil (film) that can be added to the embossing process. Without foil,  blind embossing is achieved. Foil embossing processes available include:

Foil embossing can be quoted any one or a mix of the above processes to achieve the final goal.

For standard and deluxe covers, please realize when deciding on your imprint, your cover color should be considered. A black imprint may be considered bold on tan or orange, but will fade into the fabric if placed on navy or dark brown. Likewise, gold and silver can be a very subtle choice if choosing a light color fabric - highly visible at only certain angles as the light catches the imprint.

The cost of those colors above are included in the binding or embossing price - as stipulated. More or multiple colors, different finishes (like dull metallic or glossy), special effects (holographic, brushed, or pearl, etc.) are available at further expense.
