Standard Embossing

You can add a personal touch to your book or albums with a front cover embossing.

We offer five standard embossings, detailed below. (Order Custom Embossing if you want us to emboss a product with artwork that you supply, such as a monogram or logo, or if you want to use a font that is not available in our standard embossing range.)

The first two standard options are 'blind' embossings (pressed into the cover without foil). The remaining three offer the choice of blind embossing or foiled.

Please double-check spelling, especially proper names. We cannot be responsible for errors in the artwork you supply.

For practical reasons we cannot emboss all our cover materials. The swatches on our cover materials page are annotated to indicate what we can offer on each material: B: blind embossing, F: foil embossing. Please treat this as general guidance! With literally hundreds of possible combinations it could be your first choice is not suitable in practice. If so we will contact you.

Foil colours: We offer seven different foil colours. Rose Gold, Gold, Silver, Steel, Black, White, and Copper. 

Position: Embossings are normally placed in the centre of the cover, but within limits you can request a different position (bottom right, spine etc). If necessary please add a note in Special Instructions to explain where you want the embossing placed. If you'd like a proof of the size and position, just add a note in the special instructions.

How to order: The great majority of embossing are for weddings, and the order process in Workspace assumes a standard Name & Name format, sometimes with a date as well. If you don't want to follow that format (eg a single name or title) simply enter 'N/A' into the second text field. The software may also require you to select a '+' or '&' character before you move on to the next step in the order. If necessary we suggest you add a note in the special instructions field with full details before sending your order.




Option one: Futura: Our most popular style is a single line embossing pressed into the cover without foil. Names can be separated by '+', '&' or 'AND'. Font size: 36pt. The maximum number of characters we can emboss per line is +/-20, depending on the characters used and the album size. We will contact you if we see any problems.




Option two: Bank Gothic. This embossing style allows for one or two lines, typically names on Line 1 and a date on Line 2, pressed into the cover without foil. If two names they can be separated by either 'AND' or '&'. The maximum number of characters we can emboss per line is +/-20, depending on the characters used and the album size. We will contact you if we see any problems.
