Laser Engraving

Laser Engraving Sample on a Leather Book Front Cover

Laser engraving is a cost effective way to get your design etched into leather for smaller quantities.

Beautiful results are possible, however, engraving on leather is a bit different when compared to other surfaces. Complicated designs don’t aways show great results. Simplify it for better results, taking care not to use text or detailed objects that are too small.

Rate: R295 per engraving.

Lead Time: 5 days + 2-3 days courier (if required)

We require your logo as a Vector File. You may also use our free online Customizer to design your front cover.

Heat Embossing

Hot stamping, or blind embossing of logos is a bit more complicated, but amazing results are possible. Due to high setup costs, this is the perfect solution for larger orders. For small or time sensitive orders, rather select Laser Engraving.

With this process, bronze embossing blocks of your design are first cut with a cnc machine. The logo then gets burnt into the leather along with pressure to ensure a very pleasing, smooth and detailed finish.

Rate: One-Time Setup Fee of R1500 – R2000 and R20 per book embossing.

Lead Time: 3 weeks + 2-3 days Courier (if required)

We require your logo as a Vector File. You may also use our free online Customizer to design your front cover.

Why do we require your custom design in a Vector format?

CNC machines and Laser engraving machines require a Vector file format to work. The lines are drawn mathematically, meaning edges stays infinitely sharp. Vector files are created with software like Adobe Illustrator (.ai) or CorelDraw (.cdr) or .svg.

Normal images, like .jpg or .png can’t be read by our machines because they are Raster images, or pixel based images. Unlike vector images that stays sharp, raster images becomes blurry and pixelated when zoomed.

Difference between raster and vector for laser engraving onto leather

Your files needs to be saved as .ai .svg .cdr .pdf vector. Please convert all you text and objects to Curves before export, or alternatively include the font files.

If you are not able to provide us with the files in this format, we have to recreate the logo for you at a cost of R380.
