The burnt etching process permanently engraves your artwork into the cover of your portfolio. It bites into the cover digging into the surface through the top layer of bamboo, when you touch it you will feel an indentation similar to a deboss.
The enamel printing process is a digital ink or silk screened process that lays the ink onto the surface of your portfolio and bakes it using a UV light.
Attaching a plate to your portfolio cover is a great way to brand your book and can be combined with enamel, CNC, gloss etch, black etch, burnt etch or frost etch to get a sharp look out of your presentation.
The frost etching process is only available on anodized aluminum and black anodized aluminum, it is applied using a laser technique. This is a permanent application and will not rub or scratch off.
The CNC method uses a router system to cut a window or shape through steel to reveal the second layer of your portfolio. Often used to cut text or a logo through the cover.
The gloss etch technique is best suited for our gloss white portfolio or on specific custom materials that we can bring in. This process removes the top layer of material from the cover of the portfolio exposing a second layer underneath.
Die stamping is a method we can apply to any of our metal finishes. We create a die using your artwork and are able to get detailed raised surface out of the metal.
This process is primarily used when clients are looking to put artwork onto a plate or metal cover. Specialty metals are combined with this heat transfer process to create rich results where the artwork is fully integrated with the surface of the metal.
