Our most popular customisation method, suitable for all materials. Your logo is milled onto a brass die, heated and impressed into the cover of your diaries.

Why Deboss your notebooks?

Debossing, or blind embossing, is one of the simplest and most popular ways to brand our notebooks. This works particularly well on our real leather diaries, both hard and soft, leaving a subtle curvature on the products that is fine to the touch. The effect also works on other diaries that we manufacture, whether they be fabric or Moleskine style vegan leather. A debossing on a Castelli Tucson diary results in a two-tone effect, whilst a debossing on card is similar to letterpress.

To get the debossed effect, both heat and pressure are combined, impressed onto the notebook by a brass bit milled with your logo. This is called a die-stamp. We have both manual and pneumatic machinery to cope with any quantity you might have in the shortest of timeframes. We leave the die-stamp a little cooler on our hardcover leather diaries, which leaves a slick and subtle impression, and can cope with fine detail. We deboss our soft leather diaries quite a bit deeper, as the soft leather springs back, which is better for debossing large areas. Both our fabric and Moleskine-style PU diaries achieve a similar finish, as the bookcloth material is stretched over greyboard. It is the greyboard that is compressed, with the material forming over the curve.

Pricing: What are the costs of Debossing?

A single debossed logo is included in all the prices of our customized journals an extra debossing costs around £1 or $1.5 per Notebook. But the more you order the cheaper it gets. The table represents the average cost of a debossed customized notebook with a single debossing.
