Individual products

Die stamping example image

Also known as engraving from the use of engraved metal dies to produce the impression, die stamping will deliver a distinguished raised feel to your print. We offer the highest quality die stamping in an exquisite range of colours on some of the finest papers and boards available. Your stationery will be noted for its elegance and quality.

Letterpress example image

As a variant to die stamping, where the text or images are in relief, letterpress uses a die to transfer the ink from the type to the paper or board, at the same time creating a depression in the paper.

Foiling example image

To add flair and set your print apart from the rest we can foil stamp selected text and designs on your stationery, subtly enhancing your printed piece. Foils are available in a number of finishes, metallic to matt, and in a number of colours. The foiling can be applied to most items of stationery and combined with other finishes if desired.

Embossing example image

With a subtle touch that gives your print another dimension, blind embossing uses an engraved die to indent an image on paper or board and can be applied to logos, emblems and crests as well as text. Combine embossing with foiling or printing to create an outstanding effect and your stationery will stand out in more ways than one.

Thermography example image

Ideally suited to business cards, invitations and letterheads. This process applies a powder to freshly printed ink, which fuses when heated resulting in raised print on the surface of the paper or board. For letterheads a laser compatible option is available.

Film Laminating example image

A matt or gloss film is applied to the board post-print to enhance the look and feel of the piece as well as protecting and strengthening the surface. Typically used for business cards, report covers and folders and of course menus as they are durable and can be wiped clean. For a luxury velvet feel try our ‘Soft Touch” laminate.

Die Cutting example image

Die-cutters are used to stamp custom shapes or patterns out of printed or unprinted items, adding another dimension and giving a greater effect to the piece, particularly when used to reveal design elements on the inner page of a brochure or marketing piece. The process is also used to craft custom shapes for pocket folders.

Duplexing, Triplexing & Multiplexing example image

Also referred to as ‘twin-boarding’. This is a process of permanently bonding two, three or more sheets of board together, creating a unique and memorably thick and rigid printed piece, ideal for business cards or invitations. You can be creative by bonding sheets of different colours and textures or sandwich a dark colour between two pale coloured boards.
