Our sculptured foil and emboss dies show the top of our job. They are manufactured by combining our most advanced engraving technologies with the artistic touch of our skilled hand-engravers. This will guarantee in only one pass a perfect result. No problems of misregister, and drastic reduction of set-up procedures.
Prior to manufacturing the die we supply you with a 3D interactive preview, so that you can check the overall effect and ask for some changes, if required. The final result will be of stunning luxury and will remind you the evocative charm of a true masterpiece, joined to an extraordinary quality and accuracy of detail.
Intaglio was born in Florence during the Renaissance: it is in fact the oldest and the most prestigious luxury print-finishing technique. Banknotes, State and Corporate bonds, stamps, cheques, security certificates, hang-tags, VIP letterheads and business cards are still nowadays printed with this fascinating technique, which has always been considered as the excellence in security printing.
Gasperini is able to supply you with all the know-how from the very beginning of the project, up to the development of your intaglio production (including machinery, dies and inks), so that you will be able to enter into the very exclusive “club” of intaglio printers, where technical expertise and competence are necessary to get both a high value added, a unique result and a touch of luxury.
Every 3D artistic emboss die is studied and created by the Gasperini Team Design.
With our engraving technologies, embossing is perfectly controlled: from the simplest single-level emboss, to the most complex multilevel or artistic emboss, also with foil combination. Prior to manufacturing the die (which takes only 3 days!) we are able to supply the customer with a 3D interactive preview. so that it is possible to check the overall effect and to make some changes (if required).
The 3D Artistic Emboss Dies are our source of pride, and prove the excellence of our job. The combination of our exclusive Italian design with the most advanced engraving technologies and the artistic touch of our skilled hand-engravers, makes your printed products totally unique, exclusive, fascinating and of stunning luxury.

The combination of the diffractive effects created by our special micro-textured MicroSecurFoil dies with a further overprint, will guarantee an amazing result!
The final effect can be compared to cold foil print, but the production cost is sharply lower (and you can manage also small runs) with a much more shiny, clear and standing out result. Moreover, please don’t forget that each micro-texture is created by our design studio exclusively for you and for your specific jobs. As each artwork is unique, none will be able to duplicate it, and - what’s more - you will get a final result of stunning luxury.
Micro-textured dies are our flagship! Each micro-texture is created by our designers specifically for you, and it is then engraved with the most innovative technologies on special MicroSecurFoil dies. Our MicroSecurFoil dies can be used in the widest application fields (packaging, labels, fashion hang-tags, letterheads, security documents, business cards, etc...) in order to get a matchless corporate identity. Given that each artwork is unique, your competitors will not be able to duplicate it. For this reason our micro-textured dies, engraved with the special MicroSecurFoil technology, are used in the anti-counterfeiting field, as an alternative to hologram. The authenticity of an anti-counterfeiting micro-texture is to be found both at first sight and on a careful analysis with magnifying optical instruments: in fact, the quality of a counterfeit micro-textured die does not allow a stable print, nor a sufficient resolution of all the fine details. The effect you get with our MicroSecurFoil dies will be unique and absolutely exclusive!Link to further Information
A new range of automated stand-alone powdering sections, specifically engineered for the application of glitters and PET / puff-up / adhesive powders, which are commonly used in the screen printing and heat transfer industry.
Available in 50, 76 and 100 cm. wide versions, each model features a special vacuum head, which focuses the vacuum precisely to the substrate surface allowing for a crisp and clean product.
PS applicators can operate in-line with screen printing machines and other high production presses. The variable vacuum control allows you to increase or decrease vacuum, accommodating powders between 60 and 200 microns, for a wide range of designs and effects. You don't have to mix glitters and powders into your ink, and therefore you won't have any problem of glitter flow in your silk screen. Glitter will then stay on the surface, and won't be "drowned" in the ink.Link to further Information
