Embossings can add a lot of personality to a bag. Whether it's for yourself or as a lovely gift, adding a personal touch is a fantastic option.
We charge a flat rate of £15. Depending on 1) the font type, 2) the position and 3) the type of bag, you can emboss up to 14 characters. Times New Roman font can fit up to 7 capitals and Handwritten font is slightly smaller so can fit up to 8 capital letters.
Symbols are generally the same size as upper case letters and can only be used along with Times New Roman letters. The quantity of letters and symbols you can use will show automatically when inputting your embossing details on the product page.
Please note that our embossings are now case sensitive so if you type capital or lower case letters when placing your order this is what you will receive on your bag.
To start with, what would you most like to feature on your bag?
Your initials, a special date, your university, your company, your childrens/parents initials, an important place, your full name etc? If you want a longer word or several small words then best to use lower case Handwritten font.
As well as the text, the font type, the colour and position are also important to consider.
You have several options to chose from to create that perfect personalised bag.
Times New Roman - Our original font is around 9mm tall. You can use up to 7 upper case, 9 lower case characters or a combination of both. This font is slightly more formal and is best suited to our larger bags.
Handwritten Font - Our new font is a beautiful italic font. It’s a little smaller and more delicate and has an almost vintage signature look. You can use up to 8 upper case, 14 lower case or a combination of both. Please note you cannot combine symbols with this font.
Gold - Gold embossings can be a fantastic addition as it compliments the brass hardware beautifully.
Natural - This is the option with no additional colour added. Having a subtle natural embossing is a nice option if you would prefer to keep the embossing simple and personal.
Front - The centre of the front flap is the most popular option with embossings. It is clear and proud for all to see and makes your bag obviously unique to you.
Inside - Placing the embossing inside the bag keeps it more personal and subtle.
Back - If inside isn't an option consider placing your embossing on the rear of the bag. Check the bag your interested in to see what options you have.
Heart - What better way to show someone your love than to give them a heart. Hearts can be embossed alone or along with someone initials.
Star - You can use two stars which look nice at either end of a word.
Rose - An intricate symbol depicting a love a nature or a gift to a loved one.
Crown - A hint towards the British Royal Family. Maybe you have someone who you consider to be the King or Queen of your family.
