Step 1: Laser cut and engrave the embossing plates

Begin by either creating your own design for the die plates or use our pre-prepared design. Send it to the laser using the parameters below for laser cutting and laser engraving. Depending on your laser machine and its available laser power, these parameters can vary.


Laser engraving: Black: power 60%, speed 20%, 500 ppi, Air Assist on

Laser cutting: Red: power 50%, speed 1,0%, frequency 1000 Hz, Air Assist on

Step 2: Glue the plate to the seal press

Take the newly made die plate out of the laser machine and thoroughly clean it. Simply wash the finished Delrin die plates with water and a little soap or dish liquid and wipe off any remaining dust with a brush. After gluing the plate to your seal press you are ready to begin embossing fine papers.

You can also use the embossing plate design for engraving a text plate for a rubber stamp. We've made a separate CorelDraw file for this. Make sure to adjust your laser to the parameters below when engraving the rubber text plate.


Engraving: Black: power 100%, speed 12%, 600 ppi, Air Assist on
