Finishing Touches



Digital Printing (£)

Best for short runs. We can print on a variety of heavyweight card (up to 380gsm). We offer 2 types of digital printing (Laser & Inkjet), depending on your needs. White Digital Ink available on limited range of papers.

Digital Foil (££)

Best for small runs (as no foiling plates are needed). This allows you more flexibility with quantity, and personalisation (does not leave an impression on the paper). Will only work on smooth cardstock (>300gsm)

Hot Foil Press (£££)

A process where a metal die/plate uses heat to apply foil onto a variety of surfaces. Works best for thick textured cardstock, finer detailed artwork, in large quantities. Leaves a beautiful impression in the paper.

Embossing (£££)

This is a technique where we create a raised impression in the paper. Creates a beautiful & subtle affect. Works best with simplified bold designs / artwork. The back of the card will usually also have an impression.

Debossing (££)

This is where a metal plate leaves a sunken impression in the paper. This works best on thicker cardstocks (will not affect the back of the card). When we refer to debossing we are referring to a blind deboss (no foil).

Fluted Die (££££)

Also known as a combination die, this is where we are able to foil press & create an embossed effect in one press. This adds a sense of luxury, and is a wonderfully tactile finish, combining two processes in one.

Laser Cutting / Engraving (£)

We offer in-house laser cutting & engraving services. A laser beam is used to cut / engrave materials such as paper, wood, & acrylic to name a few. Can be used it instead of die-cutting, for short, decorative runs.

UV Printing (££)

Specialised inks are applied to a variety of materials, & dried quickly using UV Lights. Allowing us to print on a variety of materials (wood, ceramic, acrylic & faux leather etc). We also offer Spot UV Varnish.

Letterpress (£££)

**Coming Soon! A polymer plate is inked & pressed into the paper, leaving a beautiful deep impression. Creates a beautiful texture, & can be combined with other finishes. Works well on lighter coloured papers (350gsm+)

Specialty Papers | Various Weights




We have a variety of speciality papers, ranging from Cotton Papers, recycled papers (marked with *) to Handmade Paper & Seed Papers



Handmade Papers | Various Weights




Handmade papers are made sheet by sheet, not in a continuous roll. Cotton fibres / recycled paper pulp( suspended in water) are poured onto a paper mould - which is a hand held wooden frame with a stainless steel wire mesh draining surface. The characteristic deckle edges of the sheet of paper come from the slippage of pulp between the deckle and the mould.



Seed Paper | Ultimate Zero Waste Solution, Some Papers Can Be Planted




**Limited Availability! It is important to bear in mind, that these papers are handmade. They are not uniform, and can lead to slight imperfections when printing. We feel that this adds to the beauty & authenticity of the product.
