Magnesium Dies

Magnesium is the best material for most hot stamping, embossing, & letterpress applications. Magnesium Dies are less expensive then copper or brass and recent quality advancements have made it suitable for all but the most intricate of jobs.


We offer .250, 11 point & 16 gauge magnesium dies for hot & cold foil stamping, embossing & debossing, as well as crash printing and letterpress. Both 16g. and 11pt magnesium dies can be mounted on wood to achieve type high. We also offer custom molded counters for embossing dies that will ensure a perfect impression without harming the die.
