Copper dies are becoming harder to buy due to recent trends. Thankfully, at Dies Direct we’ve bucked the trend.
Copper holds many advantages over its less durable counterparts:
- Copper is very durable
- Ideal for achieving close up, intricate detail (much more so than other metals)
- Copper is ideal for adding an embossed textured finish to a job
- More consistent register precision due to its greater heat retention
- Long lasting. Copper can stand over 1 million impressions
We have vast experience in the production of copper dies for the hot stamping industry. We have all the modern equipment and skilled staff on hand to create high quality foiling dies.
As standard we etch copper to 1.2mm but deeper finishes are possible on request. It depends on the substrate being foiled onto.
Copper dies can be ordered in these gauges:
- Quarter inch (6.35mm)
- 16 gauge (1.6mm)
Copper dies are also ideal in the production of security dies. Securigrafix dies offer a less limited security feature compared to holograms so they can be utilised in low volume jobs such as cheques, tax vouchers, ID cards, certificates and tickets.
Our brass foiling dies are usually dispatched within 48 hours after receipt of the artwork by our studio. (if the order is before 12 o’clock). You’ll receive your delivery time upon receipt of the artwork. We offer a worldwide delivery service.
