A die is created from a logo image and is then depressed into the leather, suede, polyester or other fabric types using a combination of high heat and pressure. This process allows the image to be depressed and sit below the fabrics surface; sometimes referred to as blind stamping. This method has become more popular than Embossing, as no backing is required to maintain the graphics shape.

New since 2012, laser embellishing offers the next generation of tone-on-tone decoration. A concentrated beam of high energy light is used to etch into fabrics and other materials while moving across a pre-determined course of up to 13" x 13".

Incorporating the same cutting-edge technology used in medical laser applications, you can create very fine detail on virtually any synthetic fabric. Extremely precise, you can create shapes and patterns as small as one-eighth inch square and text as tiny as eight-point type. Due to the fact that intensity can be controlled, it's possible to use the laser on a wide variety of products such as: leather golf shoes, wooden bar taps, picture frames, clothing hangers, glass and so much more.

*White fabrics are not recommended for use with laser embellishing. Black and Navy fabrics are very tonal in detail.
Some fabrics may be more difficult to see your finished design than others.

Screen printing is a printing technique whereby a mesh is used to transfer ink onto a substrate, except in areas made impermeable to the ink by a blocking stencil. A blade or squeegee is moved across the screen to fill the open mesh apertures with ink, and a reverse stroke then causes the screen to touch the substrate momentarily along a line of contact. This causes the ink to wet the substrate and be pulled out of the mesh apertures as the screen springs back after the blade has passed. Each colour is laid down separately and requires a spate mesh screen for each colour in your graphic.

The Debossing Process


A decorator second to none! They have taken the time to figure it out how to do it
and do it right.

The best kept secret - in fact don't tell my competition about them as they always give us the competitive EDGE. On time and done right the first time.

Raised Edge is my go to supplier for decoration needs. Not only do they provide an excellent final product, their customer service is amazing. They have a “can do” policy, and in the promo world that is a necessity. I know I can call them with a difficult request and they are always eager to help and ensure the order is delivered on time. It’s a relief to know that Raised Edge cares about what they do and that I can always rely on them….no matter what the request.

I couldn't recommend the guys at
Raised Edge enough! We always know what we're getting and never have to worry about a thing. I rely heavily on them for their superb workmanship and attention to detail. We couldn't ask for anything more.

Raised Edge has been a great supplier for Golf Canada over the last 3-4 years by providing uniform decoration services for our National Golf Team program. The staff at Raised Edge has been first class to deal with and always go above and beyond to meet my required timelines. The end product is always superb in quality. I would recommend Raised Edge to anyone looking for a garment decoration or embellishment supplier.

Marc and his team at Raised Edge are great to work with. They are prompt with their responses and deliver your orders on time. That's why we use them for our decorating needs over and over again.

We have had the opportunity to work with Raised Edge for each of our three years running the New Roads Children's Dream Charity Golf Classic, Hosted by Regional Councillor John Taylor and Raised Edge have been very professional to work with in providing custom pin flags and other custom embroidered items for our event. As well, Raised Edge have also been very generous in offering to sponsor a custom embroidered ball cap for each of our golfers to receive in our Registration Gift Bags. We thank them with our many other generous sponsors for helping us to raise over $100, 000.00 in just three short years helping to provide to special projects for less fortunate children in Newmarket.

We have had the pleasure of doing business with Raised Edge for the past couple years. They continue to amaze us with their high level of service, professional workmanship and ability to get things done under strict, and often tight, timelines. Our customers are continuously commenting on the unique treatment/decorating options, which allow for custom logos on various surfaces. I would strongly recommend their services to anyone in the industry.

I'm very impressed with both Marc and Thomas. From the first day we met, you were both very accommodating, professional, and extremely knowledgeable. Your quality of work is second to none! I’ve had great feedback form both internal and external customers. We wish you continued success!!!

Dear Raised Edge,

I want to thank you for all your hard work on behalf of myself and my clients. Your professionalism and attention to detail are always evident. And, most important thank you for not letting me and my client down on this last rush order - your sense of urgency is impeccable In addition to these attributes, the work you do is excellent. My client loves the look and feel of the Debossing.

I look forward to working with you for many more years.

Raised Edge has been a service provider to our sport retail store since we opened in Sept. 2011. The team at Raised Edge has provided us with impeccable service and exceptional quality of work in all projects on which we have collaborated. They are reliable and continuously under promise and over deliver in all areas of service delivery. Our client base has repeatedly given us outstanding feedback in reference to the end products we deliver to them via Raised Edge. We would 100% recommend Raised Edge to be part of your preferred vendor team.

Thomas and Marc have been great to work with. I have sent over high quantity orders for laser etching and reflective 3M heat transfer printing. The quality of work is next to none, and with timely turn around they have certainly gone above and beyond expectations. I will be glad to send more orders their way in the future. Keep up the good work!

The second file submitted should be a Jpeg. This will allow us to ensure that there have not been any colour changes or alterations to your vector artwork which can sometimes occur due to new graphic software. Please limit file sizes to 30 MB.

With some decoration options, high-resolution .jpeg formats are expectable but not recommended. Avoid using images from the internet, as most do not print with an acceptable level of quality.
