Also known as Engraving, Intaglio or Copperplate
Die-Stamping really works for multi-colour crests, coats of arms, invitation cards, letterheads and business cards where there is fine detail in the design. The raised printing with three-dimensional aspects brings your work to life.
Large areas of dense solid colour can be successfully die-stamped by using a ‘screened’ or ‘sable’ die. Screen die permits solids, fine lines and reversed-out areas and is a natural choice for cards, labels, logotypes, crests, book covers, symbols and stationery.
When using this print technique, our skilled craftsmen engrave steel dies and copperplates that are then printed using our traditional heavy die-stamping presses.
The benefits of die-stamping include:
- Emboss with a second die for extra effect,
- Incomparable when used with multicolour designs,
- Matte inks make for rich, vibrant colours
- Laser compatible
We can use this technique with a combination of other fine print processes.
