Embossing board can significantly reduce the make-ready time when compared to powder techniques which involve prolonged drying time
Attach a piece of Epoxy Glass board or Pertinax to the make-ready plate of your machine.
Cut a suitable piece of yellow Embossing Board and place it over the Epoxy Glass or Pertinax with double sided tape.
Run the machine through one impression, making sure that the Embossing Board is in the correct area for the die to hit.
Wet the Embossing Board with water (this enables the Embossing Board to shape itself to the female die) and run the machine through 5-6 impressions.
When this is complete there will be an exact copy of the die on the Embossing Board. However, the edges of the die will be showing, these edges should be removed by chamfering.
When the above steps have been completed, the new counter should be protected by placing a piece of soft blotting paper over the top of the Embossing Board.
