  • Printing/embossing onto gift boxes

    Hello, I'm at an impasse and wonder if anyone can please help. I want to print a personalised message onto my gift boxes. I've picked a couple of examples off the web of what I mean. Are they printed/embossed/stamped!? Any ideas folks would be welcomed thank you

    These look as if done professionally, you can get the same effect but would need stamps and embossing powders plus a heat gun. Or maybe buy some rub on transfers, loads of people do them on Etsy within the UK

      They could have been done with a laser machine, you might want to think about using one if you're going to a lot.

        Thank you both for the suggestions. Do you mean a laser cutting machine? How would that do the personalised message part - it looks almost typed to my laymans eye!

          They can set the laser to engrave the surface, just like pyrography. Loads of how to's on youtube etc.

              You could do it with a laser engraver, you'll need about 3W to get a dark engraving on wood, and 2W should be enough for paper. You can always use the software to turn the power down. They are very slow though unless you have a really powerful machine with a fast carriage.

              The boxes in your photos look like they've been die embossed before the wrap has been applied to the box. I suppose you could use an inkjet or laser to pre-print personalised messages on the box wrap and then apply it.

              I hope that's helpful.

                  I thought I should explain about laser engraver or marking machine a bit more if some guys here find it helpful. [LINK DROP REMOVED] machine is used mostly for organic materials. This includes wood engraving, paper cutting, acrylic bodies, and leather marking. However, the machine can also engrave on non-metal inorganic materials, such as polymers, glass, leather, paper, acrylic and plastics. Hope this will be helpful. Thanks.
