Why should you use a book embosser?

Fleur & Fable have just launched their personalised book embosser range! Compared to bookplate stamps and stickers, how do they weigh up? For those who value their personal libraries, a book embosser is an essential tool that adds a touch of elegance and personalisation to each volume. Here’s why you should consider using a one:

1. Personalisation and Ownership

Never lose your books to friends again! Embossing your books lets friends know from where their loaned books came from. If you're not into loaning out books, personalising your collection with your name can be a way of identifying your favourite reads or to say “This book is part of my personal story”.

2. No paper warping

Fleur & Fable's embossers are specially vetted to ensure a permanent but gentle impression. It's suitable for all novel-type paper (book cream) up to the slightly thicker paper used for endpapers. In gsm talk, that's 60-120gsm. 

3. Perfect for Gifting

A personalised book embosser is the perfect gift for your home library, a teacher or bibliophile friend - especially when they seem to have it all!

4. Easy to Use and Long-Lasting

With a simple press, you can create a clear, consistent impression every time. The embossers themselves are built to last and can be used for years to come. Unlike bookplate stamps, they don't require any ink pads to work so you can start embossing straight out of the box.

5. A Nod to Tradition

Using a book embosser is a way of connecting with the past. It harkens back to 500 years of history when bookplates and personalised seals were used by the upper class (and then in recent history when printing improvements were made, bookplates were made equally accessible). Fleur & Fable's particular designs are based on historic sources with a modern twist. Embracing this tradition adds a layer of history to your book collection, blending the old with the new in a meaningful way.

6. Versatile Applications

Beyond books, embossers can be used on a variety of paper goods. From stationery to certificates, an embosser can be used where ever you'd like your name to appear.

7. Australian made by a small business 

All of our embossing plates are made in Australia with a quick turnaround of 5 business days. If you need any help with ensuring your embosser works with your paper types, design requests/changes or anything else please feel free to reach out.
