Adding initials to a finished product requires a lot of skill and experience and consists of heating some special brass blocking dies before applying onto the leather goods with blind emboss (no foil) some gold or silver foil. This is therefore done by our best craftsperson to guarantee the best results.
The special set of characters that we use were commissioned especially by us in a unique and highly elegant style and we currently can add up to 5 characters per leather item.
Most items will be blocked on the front bottom right-hand corner, but this may vary from item to item. Moreover, not all our products can be initialled, due to manufacturing restrictions. If the option does not appear on the product page, then this item cannot be initialled.
Ettinger takes great care to block initials by hand, with each custom letter set adjusted individually to ensure the spacing achieves just the right balance and the emboss remains very crisp and delicate. This is done by a specialist craftsperson in our factory and so can take up to 1-2 weeks for delivery.
We will get in touch to confirm the timing but should you require any other assistance, please call us on +44 20 8877 1616 or email us.
