Looking for an overprint with graphics? Please see graphical overprint
Great option if your cover needs custom text without ordering expensive stamps. A special foil is bonded with the linen. Similar to embossing but it doesn't dent the cover and is flat. Available in gold, silver, white, black.
Please notice that fine lines may get lost on thick, textured linens like premium pastel. Make sure your thinnest line is at least 1mm in width. Please observe the 4x6" box in the video above.
Since we use heat to bond it, it can't be used only on linens. Leatherlikes or leathers may be damaged in the process.
What we need:
During ordering process you will be asked to upload files for your overprint. In case of text overprint with a custom font (which we may not have in our library) we NEED to get ALL of these:
1. TTF or OTF font file
2. Layered PSD or at least JPG with text you wish to appear on your cover.
3. Color of the overprint: GOLD, SILVER, BLACK or WHITE
4. Placement of the overprint and text align. By default we will put it in the visual center of the cover.
5. Width of the overprint in cm/inches. This is really important!
A PSD with cover mockup and text position would be perfect.
In a perfect world our production team would love to get instructions like this:
