Foil Stamp Personalization



Woo Hoo! Select any product and add foil stamp name or monogram type initials for personalization! Look through some of our selections and examples. Design Bindery Foil Stamp Personalization is carried out using “old school” techniques: lead type fonts that are heated on a stamping machine (our KwikPrint stamping machines). Foil is applied through a combination of temperature, pressure and “dwell” time ( ie- how long you press down on the piece while applying pressure. This is a part of the true craft and is limited to areas no greater than 1″ H x 5″ wide. Not all materials are suited for foil stamping, sometimes a blind deboss or burnishing technique works better. We will advise you on any potential problems we might run into once you place your order. Price is $5.00 for 1 Jumbo Letter or one smaller type 36 or 24 point line of letters (no longer than 5 “). Standard Foil Colors are Gold and Silver. Multiple lines of copy and/or long phrases are somewhat discouraged as this technique truly looks best when kept minimal. We hope you agree!
