Brass Type for Hot Foil Printing, Hot Foil Stamping or Debossing
Our brass type is made to the most rigorous standards from hard brass. for The body is first machined to the exact point size and then ground accurately to the type height.
The characters are deeply engraved using special jigs to ensure perfect alignment and excellent definition on most surfaces, when used in a hot foil printing machine.
Our range of faces have been gradually increased and now includes 60 styles as can
be seen in our catalogue. We can now reproduce almost any fount of your choice in
addition to our standard 60 styles. Just send us a PDF or a fount file and we will
be able to quote your accordingly!
The style sheets have been arranged for ease of comparison with sans serif faces first, followed by light serif faces, then Roman faces. Finally the scripts, decorative faces and foreign language fonts.
Most faces are also available with accented letters for foreign languages (please
supply details of requirements).
