Owosso Graphic Arts provides custom dies for leather debossing. Leather debossing is the process of taking a leather good such as a purse, wallet, album or journal, and and making a depression or indentation of the die into the product. The use of heat and pressure into the leather good creates the indentation. Leather debossing dies are best made on magnesium metal because of the etch depth that we can achieve.

Custom Dies for Leather Debossing
Magnesium Dies for Leather Stamping and Debossing
OWOSSO offers a variety of magnesium dies to be used for foil stamping, debossing, custom applications, and more. When used correctly, magnesium can provide substantial savings for you and your customers.
OWOSSO is able to offer same day production for magnesium dies provided the order is received by our 10am EST cut-off time. For all leather debossing, use 11 point, 1/4″ or 3/8″ magnesium dies.
Magnesium Die & Plate Storage
Thoroughly clean your magnesium die—most soaps or detergents can be safely used on the die. Be sure all chemicals are removed from the die. Then carefully coat the die with a light oil—a nonstick cooking spray works. Once the die is completely dry, tightly wrap the magnesium plate or die in plastic wrap or a resealable bag. The priority is to remove or reduce oxygen from the die, as oxygen contains moisture which will start the oxidizing process.
Leather Foil Stamping
Foil stamping can be achieved with a custom OWOSSO die. The foil stamping process, also known as hot foil stamping, is similar to debossing. Metal dies, heat, and pressure are all used. While leather debossing makes an indentation into the leather, foil stamping uses heat to transfer a thin layer of metallic foil onto the product. Foil stamping works for both leather goods and paper products.
