Branding - Pina Zangaro

Custom Options

Nearly every Pina Zangaro product can be customized in some manner.

  • Blind Debossing for most* Bex, Bryant, Potrero and Varenna products is a process using a three ton press and a metal plate transfer of your artwork.
  • Color Imprinting for most* Bamboo, Bex, Bryant, Camden, Frost, Machina, Olema, Tera, Varenna, Vista and Woodland products, Color Imprinting utilizes a digital flatbed ultraviolet printer that cures the ink permanently.
  • Laser Etching for most* Bamboo, Camden, Frost, Machina, Olema, Tera, Vista and Woodland products, Laser Etching uses a CO2 laser to lightly engrave a slightly textured version of your artwork.

*At this time the 2-inch binders cannot be color imprinted and only some can be laser etched or debossed. See the branding tab or Custom Options heading on specific product pages for what can be done.

Setup Fees

Some services include setup fees while others do not.

  • For Blind Debossing, there is a $260 fee for die setup. This fee will be waived for re-orders placed within one year after the previous order. Dies are archived for five years after the most recent order using the die.
  • For Color Imprinting, there is no setup fee.
  • For Laser Etching, there is no setup fee.
