Engraving (Die Stamping)
We offer the manufacturing of engraved stationery (die stamping) on a variety of manual and automatic presses, either on customer supplied paper stock or stock we provide. Typical items include letterheads, envelopes, business cards, covers, folders, invitations and announcements, calling cards, bookplates and all types of social stationery. Engraved pieces may be combined with other processes such as lithography and foil stamping. We offer all colors of ink based on the Pantone PMS system, including metallic shades. Our automatic presses have a capacity of 15000 impressions a day.
Engraving Plates
Our etching department is capable of creating photoengraved copper plates from either artwork or negatives provided. We can work from digitized files sent via e-mail from a variety of software. Your design can be fully reproduced using the engraved process.
Blind Embossing
Blind embossing is die stamping without ink to create a raised impression in the paper itself. We offer full capability in this process including the creation of the special brass dies that are sometimes necessary for multi-layered impressions. We also can hot stamp this process for greater definition.
We can provide a wide choice of papers for your project from a variety of well-known mills. Fine cotton-rag papers are available from such mills as Gilbert, Strathmore, Cranes, and Neenah. We also offer paper cutting and trimming services. We are a licensed distributor of Cranes Kid Finish Social Papers and can offer you quite a savings over retail.
We can set type to your specifications using Mac-based interface with a choice of over 3000 fonts. We can output to film or to disk.
