Whether the gift is for yourself or a loved one, personalising it makes it truly unique and turns a present into a keep-sake.
You can select from a special date, initials or a name and we can usually offer the service in Gold, Silver or Blind de-bossing. Here’s what you need to know.
OUR HOT FOIL MACHINE
We are proud to use the very best in Hot Foil technology having purchased our machine from Metallic Elephant. Metallic Elephant, led by Karl French, is now the only manufacturer of hand-built hot foil machines in the UK.
The placing of initials onto your item is called ‘de-bossing’ and we use a set of brass blocks inserted into the machine to do this. The blocks are pressed into your item at a temperature of 90 degrees + for a matter of seconds to give the desired results. We take great care to ensure the placement of the personalisation is just right and as such we decide where on your gift the initials or date will appear.
Blind De-bossing – we use this on Italian leather where the gold and silver don’t always take fully.
Gold / Silver – works well on nappa and embossed leather.
In most cases you can select from Gold, Silver or Blind (no colour)
Yes – however there are some items where blind de-bossing is the only option, we have tried to make this clear on the item
You can select from initials, words up to 6-8 characters depending on the space or a date. It is not possible to add sentences.
We know that mistakes can happen and where possible we will try and help you out. However this may not always be possible as your item may have already started to be created based on your original order. Please contact us as soon as possible to see if your item has already been created especially for you.
We have a 7-10 day turnaround for personalised gifts, if you need it before then please let us know at the time of ordering and we will do our best.
At this time the machine we use is not able to support the personalisation of larger items to the standard we would like.
Unfortunately this service is not routinely available however depending on the volume of sales that day we might be able to help so get in touch and we will do our best.
Yes, just make sure you place their details in the shipping address.
