|Getting set up to Emboss or Personalize a Bible
On the LEFT you can see we used a Gauge Bar to align the bible under the machine head The Gauge Bar
allows you to have a right angle stop. The Gauge Bar moves forward and back and the side stop moves left
and right. This is how you set up to emboss or personalize different size Bibles.
The type holder shown here is a one line 5" and has the type set and ready to go
Below is a demonstration of the 3 line 5" type holder designed for
doing more lines, adding ornaments or dates with ease of set up.
Note that we did not load the foil on the foil feed. In our shop we do not use the foil feeds when doing leather
items or Bible Imprinting. Leaving the foil off allows us greater visibility of the imprint area. It is particularly
important when stamping a rough material as you will want to blank stamp the material first in order to "iron"
or smooth out, with the type, where the imprints goes. Then lay the foil in by hand and kiss or "lay" the foil
into the imprint a area.

It should be noted that the handle of the Typeholder is to our left and the nick in the type is up. The name Harold is set left to right with
the nick up starting on the bottom line.
Setting the type in this manor allows the typeholdr to be inserted in the Left side of the machine thus avoiding the handle of the holder
crashing into the spine of the Bible (see incorrect method below)

Clamping the bible to the metal base plate.
This helps hold the Bible in place while blank
stamping and then foiling the Bible. It is
sometimes necessary to prop up the right side
of the bible with a box or other item to help
insure the Bible does not move during the
|We suggest always F I R S T stamping on a
clear piece of acetate and laying it on the book
so you can see exactly where the imprint is
going to land and to check spelling.

insert the Typeholder from the Right side. No
worries just remove the handle so it does not
crash into the spine of the Bible
