Step 1: Cut and engrave the embossing plates

Create your own design for the die plates or use the one we've prepared for you. Then send it to the laser with the parameters below for cutting and engraving. The laser parameters may vary, as they depend on the machine used and the available laser power.

Step 2: Glue the plate to the seal press

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