Meet our Head Embosser, Philip

Philip heads up our embossing service at our headquarters in York in the north of England. He’s incredibly passionate about the craft:

“Embossing is all about clarity and accuracy. It takes just a few moments to stamp the foil into the leather’s grain however, this is only a small part of the process. As with most crafts, the preparation is crucial for the best results. Ensuring that the heat, the pressure, the timing and the surface level is perfect takes years of practice.”

Philip has been immersed within the leather and retail industry since 1984. He uses two embossing machines at our embossing workshop – the Kwikprint 25 and 86. He uses the finest quality foils to ensure all our personalization is crisp and finished to perfection.


To guarantee a truly special gift that is specifically unique to the recipient, personalization is the perfect option. There is something very heartwarming about receiving a present with your own initials or name beautifully stamped into the grain of the leather.
