How is leather embossed? We will answer this question in the following blog post. We'll show you how we personalize our bags for you.
We use a Howard 150 embossing machine for blind embossing as well as for foil embossing onto leather. This machine has been produced in the USA unchanged since 1937.
First it comes to the letter selection. For our initials we use specially made brass letters in size 36pt and the font Crimson. The letters are then inserted into letter holders. There is also a special holder for your own logo or graphic, which can be seen in the picture on the left.
It is possible to provide our products with a so-called blind embossing or foil embossing.
To do this, the machine must be set to the correct temperature, paired with the correct embossing time you get the following results.
The standard color for embossing with foil is gold, but we offer a variety of other colors. Just contact us, we will be happy to advise you!
The bag must of course be aligned correctly in order to be able to produce a clean embossing that runs parallel to the edge. Various rulers and markings are helping us with this. Then the bag is fixed with clamps.
The result is a clean embossing with clear contours. At the customer's request, we used a matt light blue foil.
