Envelope is made seperately and then stuck to the end sheets and text blocks to create a book that lasts for years.

Usually the name and full name of the writer appear on the front envelope and the name, surname of the writer and the year on the back. Just download a monochrome PDF with your preferred embossed slide for the front page. In the field "Additional instructions" please write down exactly what you want to punch on your back and how you want to align it.
The embossing of a badge, icon or individual typeface can be done for an extra fee and depends on the postmark area. Further information on our film embossing method can be found here.
