Hot foil stamping can be done on most leather items with a gorgeous final effect if done correctly. The hard part is finding a leather embossing company who would be willing to perform hot foil stamping on items you:
- Haven’t bought from them.
- Bought from them, but they don’t feel comfortable working with for a myriad of reasons.
Both of these were true for a recent Inkwell Designers customer.
When Dr. Lumanog went to a very large local Christian bookstore to buy a bible, he also brought his iPad cover and wanted both items hot foil stamped with his name in gold foil.
He was told that they couldn’t stamp the bible because the leather was too thin. They also told him they wouldn’t hot foil stamp the iPad because it was his personal property and they wouldn’t take the risk helping him in case something went wrong. Keep in mind, there are instances where the leather won’t take the foil because it’s treated, but this wasn’t the case.
He left the store very frustrated and started looking online. He found the page about our leather embossing service using a Google search and called immediately.
He talked to our CEO, Desiree Colonna who had actually taken the day off as it was July 3, the day before the July 4th holiday. Dr. Lumanog had just started his sabbatical and really wanted to get the items hot stamped before he took his vacation. Desiree offered to meet him near downtown Woodstock, GA within an hour and had the item done exactly one hour later. Helping Jack on her day off was an easy decision because she loves what she does. “When you love what you do, it doesn’t feel like work!” stated Desiree when Dr. Lumanog asked why she was so willing to help him with the project.
Dr. Lumanog was so pleased he wrote the following 5-Star Google review:
We are more than willing to help with items a lot of large stores refuse to work with. All we need is a picture of the item and to talk to you to determine if the item is a candidate for hot foil stamping. If you aren’t sure, please contact us directly at 770 509 8797 ext. 2 and we’ll be happy to help you make that determination and perform the service. Give us a call today!
