Blind embossing is the most popular form of branded notebooks. They are particularly common because they offer a nice balance between promoting a brand identity without being too dominant. This technique works well on any of the hardback notebooks we offer from Moleskine, Leuchtturm1917 and Castelli.
Technically this is a debossing process as it involves stamping a metal die with the raised artwork into the cover of a notebook. A 'true' embossing, on the other hand, is where a design would be raised up from the notebook cover - this is not something you would be able to do with these books unfortunately!
Here we have the Moleskine notebooks we've all come to know and love. The durable, hard cover lends itself well to the process of embossing. This creates a clean and defined outline without seeming too imposing.
Logos with very fine details are particularly well presented. For example, family or military crests are much more suited to being embossed and look very impressive.
The Castelli Tucson notebooks become darker as the cover is compressed during the embossing process. The pressure and heat creates a stunning effect that really gives your logo a powerful presence on the front cover.
Going through the colour choices in the Castelli Tucson really shows this off. Some colours do offer more subtlety like the Graphite.
The vibrant royal blue Leuchtturm1917 hardback provides a sturdy surface for the embossing which results in a superb finish with good sharp edges. Very similar to the results of embossing on Moleskine.
Leuchtturm1917 offers one of the most exciting range of colours, perfect for a dynamic or lively brand. Mixing different colours in the same order comes at no extra cost.
