Brass type is made from hardened industrial solid brass stock. This type is manufactured on automated CNC machines, a process which gives unlimited ability to control the depth of character, precise tolerances, and availability of styles.
The character depth of this type is close to 1/4 inch deep (over 3 times the depth of standard type, and can be custom made at any depth). This depth allows for a superior clearance between the type body and the substrate. The clearance completely eliminate type error when printing albums, leather, and soft or cushion like products.
Brass conducts heat more evenly and rapidly, allowing for clean crisp images at lower temperatures. Brass type is also the hardest of the three kinds of type. Therefore, it will provide decades of use.
Brass type is the most expensive of all hot stamping type offerings but most album and leather manufacturers believe the benefits of brass type far outweigh the cost. Font schemes are 200 pieces and the font count can be customized.
