Foil Stamping and Blind Stamping.
Foil stamping and blind stamping, emboss and deboss, are some of many custom features we offer, and also high-quality book printing. Our books are always have beautiful bindings too.
The image on this article shows an excellent example of both a foil stamp and a blind stamp.
Adding custom options like these, means that your books can really stand out. Show off your beautiful book design with quality custom options, and your book becomes extraordinary! We offer many options like these, that cannot be found elsewhere.
In fact, if adding foil stamping to a print on-demand book, you only get block letters on the spine. Most self-publishers would rather have the foiled typeface on the spine that matches the foiled book title on the cover.
Foil stamping is a customization that costs very little
Consider adding options to set your book apart. It costs relatively little to add customization. But, there is one point that is quite often overlooked when making decisions about adding custom options. That is that self-publishers can charge a higher retail price.
Customization actually help self-publishers make more profit. Also, how little it costs per copy to add a foil stamp. Leave the foil off, and it is simply called blind stamping.
Emboss and Deboss terminology
Emboss is to raise
Embossing is raising the surface on the paper, and this often used on a dust jacket and then it may have foil stamping. At times, authors say they want embossing on cover wrap. A cover wrap — not to be confused with a dust jacket — is glued to the boards of a book. This surface cannot be raise or emboss. It can only deboss.
Example: we emboss dust jackets.
Deboss is to depress
Debossing is stamping the surface area so that it will press into the boards which are the boards of a hardcover book; front cover, spine and back cover. So, you cannot raise these surfaces.
Example: we deboss when applying foil stamping or blind stamping to a hardcover book.
