Hot Stamping Brass Type Makes The Best Mark For Kwikprint


Kwikprint manufactures top quality embossing, debossing, foil stamping, and imprinting machinery for most hot stamping and printing needs for consumer products. They also offer customized logo printingfoil stamping dies, foil printing, album imprinting, and monogram  services to promote businesses.


Kwikprint equipment is used by companies like Louis Vuitton, Coach, TUMI, Ralph Lauren, Walt Disney Animation and Banana Republic. They have supplied machines with Durable brass type for monogramming leather bags, wallets, portfolios, and briefcases. They are also currently working with J. Crew out of New York City to develop a line of brass type to mark leather hand bags using Kwikprint's machines. Kwikprint also uses Durable brass printers' type to hot stamp text, numbers, and graphics onto books, leather, wood, and other consumer products.

"Kwikprint machines are being used all over the world and are supplied with brass type from Durable. Kwikprint also refers their customers directly to Durable Technologies when they have very specific and unique type and die requirements. We have been buying from Durable for at least 30 years, maybe longer. We have type that my father and grandfather probably bought from Durable still being used today," says Jay D. Cann, owner of Kwikprint.

"Debossing is when you press images into leather, and Durable can make brass type with a character relief deeper than most so you don't get an over print defect. Text, numbers, custom logos, and matching a particular size and shape is not problem for them, which is a unique capability compared to other type manufacturers. Durable Technologies has been delivering the best brass hot stamping type to us for a long time," says Mr. Cann.

Durable Technologies manufacturers a wide variety of brass printers’ type styles will fit any need for monogramming or personalizing in printers like Kwikprint® and virtually any other hot stamping machine. Typical applications include book bindings, personalization of items, ribbons, greeting cards, napkins, matchbooks, labels, leather goods, advertising specialty items, and more. Our high quality brass type and dies are a great value since they will far outlast less expensive alloys such as zinc and lead type. Brass type also produces a much crisper, cleaner mark than cheaper alloy types. Alloy type may be less money up front but in the end brass is a much wiser investment.

Here are some examples of the beautiful work Kwikprint is doing with Durable's brass type (Click on the image to get a closer look).
