Text Stamping Made Easy

Stamping and embossing text on a cover or spine of a book is a great way to customize and add an extra touch to a book.  The text is hot stamped into the material, so you get a nice debossed text area that gives it a great custom made feel. Many times we emboss names or dates to the cover, but we can also have custom logos, or designs made into stamping as well. There are several collections that automatically include stamping, like the Paris, Bordeaux, and Toscana books, but it can be added to almost any of the other styles.

To add stamping to an order, we just need to know a few things:

Silver Stamping on Bordeaux book

Location on book – Where on the book you’d like the stamping: front cover, inside front cover, back cover, etc
Position on page – Where on the page you’d like the stamping: upper center, lower right, dead center, etc
Font – Please download this file to see your font options: Stamping FONTS.doc (60.5 KB)
Color – Black, silver, gold, blind (no color, just stamping), or smoke (clear)
Text Line 1 – this should be the EXACT text you need
Text Line 2 – Exact text for the second line
You’ll want to include the above info in the notes section upon checkout, and we’ll have it added into your order.

We can also have custom designs and logos made into stamping dies for your books.  This is a nice way to include your branding professionally on your books.  There is a one time charge to have the logo made into a stamping die (depends on the size of the logo), and then it’s only $20.00 for each additional stamp.

For the custom logo stamping, we need a B&W Illustrator file, or a B&W Jpeg sized at exactly the size you need it at 600 dpi.

If you have any questions on text stamping or creating a custom stamping die, please don’t hesitate to let us know.
