Embossed leather

One of the most decorative features in leather is embossing, there are three main ways in which leather belts can be embossed, through a roller press, lasered or stamped.  


Each process except lawering requires a die made which under pressure creates the embossed effect. Stamped leather can be enhanced by use of special materials to create a contrast against the body of the leather, a technique we use when embossing logos onto the tongue of the belt or keepers. Here are some examples of embossed effects onto leather. Please note that all embossed logos or designs are custom made to order and there will be a die charge for each design.

Embossed leather does not work well on some leathers due to ther tanning and finishing process, we recommend embossing on vegtan leathers as this generally gives a deep and quality finish. Embossing leather is usually applied either with heat and a special film to enhance the effect by having a slight contrast or with hot foils.


Embossing is not ponly applied to leather there are many other subtrates that embossing or hotfoiling can add to the aesthetic appearance of a product from webbing, cardboards, faux leathers and certain plastics and fabrics.

Leather belts can be lasered or embossed on a step and repeat basis across the whole length of the belt, the longest section for embossing with heath is approximately 150 mm long, the longest section by laser is 500 mm. Laser etching sublimates the leather and so it is aways refinished and conditioned as the laser dries out the natural oils in the leather. Dyeing and colour filling is possible with deep etching of leather belts and straps by laser. Please ask our sales office for solutions for your embossing project.
