At Metal Marker, we are all about custom. From our metal tag processes, to custom stamp production, we strive to provide a solution that is tailor made for your application.
There are a wide range of marking dies available on the market today.
We primarily focus on two types of custom dies: stamping and embossing.
A stamping die presses into metal to create an indented design. Since this is a direct imprint, the back side of the end product will remain flat.
Generally speaking, thicker material is better to be on the receiving end of a stamping press. Since the material will be indented, there has to be somewhere for that pressing to go. By using a thick material, there is enough room that the stamp can clearly mark the requisite design.
Embossing requires creating a male and female die set which form a raised design in the substrate. These raised designs are sometimes preferred due to the ability to stay legible in adverse conditions.
Embossed characters are raised upwards, or towards you if looking face on. These dies can also be made in the inverse, creating a design that is lowered away from you. This is referred to as debossing.
In contrast to stamping, embossing dies are best used with thinner material. The material is going to be sandwiched between two dies, and pressed together. The thinner the material, the easier this will be, and the better clarity of the end design.
