Here at Dekora Album Co. we offers a few creative imprinting options to choose from when customizing your album or box cover, Below is an overview of the current options available to you and your clients. Please note that some processes work better on certain materials.
OUR IMPRINT PROCESSES
TEXT & CUSTOM IMPRINT (HOT STAMPING PROCESS)
TEXT IMPRINT (Handset/Hot Stamping Process) using a pre made set of block letters put into a stamping machine and with the set letters stamped into the cover surface with high heat and pressure. This form of text imprint is limited to 1 5 characters per line and can be applied in both a blind or foil application
CUSTOM IMPRINT or LOGO DIE (Hot Stamp Process) Using a vector based design file created in Adobe Illustrator (.ai or .eps formats are preferred). A “Die Cast” of your design is then created for the hot stamping process. This imprint can be used in both a blind or foil application
Please Note: Due to the surface nature of our natural linen material the “BLIND IMPRINT” is NOT recommended.
Images showcased below are clients examples of TEXT IMPRINT and CUSTOM IMPRINT where a “debossing die” was created for the imprinting process.
NEW** FOIL KISS (DIGITAL PROCESS)
We are so excited to be able to offer your clients a new state of the art FOIL KISS process. This amazingly flexible process allows you to produce some amazing text options or any custom design with ease.
Your supplied text or vector design is digitally printed on a specialized foil and transferred to the cover material of choice. In some cases the material texture may show as the foil kiss process is transferred to the surface of the selected materials and not pressed into the surface like the debossing option offered where a die cast is required.
Please Note: Due to the nature of the “Foil Kiss” process the “BLIND IMPRINT” option is NOT currently available.
Images showcased below are client examples of FOIL KISS where our special digital print and transfer process was used for the imprinting process. NO imprint die was required for this imprint.
TEXT IMPRINT uses a selection of hand set block letter type to create an attractive imprint of up to 15 characters per line with 2 lines included. Dekora currently offers 6 different font styles via the SHOP
PLEASE NOTE: If BLIND IMPRINT the desired imprint format the DEBOSS IMPRINT option MUST be the selection in your order.
HOUSE CALLIGRAPHY uses our “House Font” to create a script “hand wriiten” effect of the desired text. There is currently 1 house calligraphy font available. The typical application is the the clients name only but you can request a second line if required
Our “House calligraphy” is available in both hot stamping & foil kiss applications
