Foil Embossing

Make it unique in a matter of seconds with a few delicate embossed letters

Foil Embossing Service

When embroidery isn’t suitable Hand & Lock offer foil embossing. Available with a one day service, embossing is an ideal way of customising an item for yourself or as a gift. We can add your choice of letters to paper, plastic, wood and leather making any item truly special. Choose from tradition colours such as gold, silver and copper or go wild with hot red, fuscia pink, sea-green or holographic. You can opt for a few individual foiled letters or choose a favourite phrase, saying or song lyric.

Typical items suitable for embossing include leather effect notebooks, luggage tags, passport wallets, card holders, key-rings, leather rucksacks and wash bags. If you are unsure if your item can be foil embossed call our London studio to speak to an expert.

How it works

Wherever possible, call the studio ahead of time to make sure your item is suitable for embossing. Items can be old or new but ideal materials are limited to paper, leather and plastic. Once you bring the item to us, our expertly trained staff will go through colour and placement options with you until you are satisfied. Operating the specialist machine before your eyes we will seal the foil at 100+ degrees, bonding it into your item. The whole process should take no more than 20 minutes.

All work is completed in our central London Studio just five minutes walk from Oxford Circus tube station. Clients are welcome to visit the studio without an appointment.


Embossing is £12 (Up to 6 letters / price includes VAT).
