Tip-In Image Printing

Can I print CMYK artwork on my faux leather or cloth cover project?

The answer is…..a variation of YES!

Tip-in image printing applies to mainly to faux leather and cloth cover projects as an alternative, or add-on, to foil stamping or debossing. Essentially, we will apply a light deboss in the shape of your printed artwork. After this has been done, we print the CMYK artwork, trim it, and apply it to the debossed area with a fine layer of glue.

Manufacturing Restrictions & Considerations

  1. The shape of the printed CMYK artwork and deboss area needs to be a simple, solid shape – no complex shapes. For example: solid square, solid circle, solid rectangle, etc.
  2. The minimum shape size for deboss area is 2” x 2”.
  3. Multiple shapes are doable.


This is a custom add-on so to get pricing on this feature you will need to save a quote and reach out to your Account Manager with the PRN# asking for this feature to be added to your quote. This feature is not available for orders printed through our domestic digital-offset printing service.
