We have bound many final year projects for
At Duffy Bookbinders we have a range of fonts that can be used to set lines of type,on a ludlow, that we can use to foil/blind emboss your project.(see thesis binding)
To foil or blind emboss?
This decision is totally up to your own preference,
however the material you have chosen could well decide the factor as some uncoated cloths take a high heat to foil, that cannot be reached using lines of type. In this case you will only have the option to blind emboss.
EMBOSSING USING A BLOCK
If you are looking to emboss a design or script on your project, it is possible, but to do so you would have to have a BLOCK made. This is very expensive for
one off bindings, with the block alone costing around 80euro. If you choose to have a block made, it is yours to take home and can be used again.
