Personalised Leather Gifts

Whether as the final touch to a gift or as a treat to yourself, our personalisation team offers a bespoke service to make our leather pieces unique. Your briefcase, handbag, luggage or accessory can be personalised with up to 15 letters, embossed with coloured foil in gold, silver, copper or blind…

Our Service

Usually, a set of initials are stamped into the leather in order to personalise the chosen piece, however, important short quotes or dates are also wonderful ways in which to create unique, and sentimental, leather gifts. 

If you have any special requests please contact our Customer Service team and we will aim to fulfil your inquiry.

Colour Options
personalised leather gifts

Blind – Perfect for a more subtle approach to personalisation, blind means that no colour is added during the embossing process.


Silver – This choice works best on our black, vegetable-tanned leather to tie in with the silver metalwork.


Copper – A modern selection, copper suits the chestnut tan and chocolate brown leathers in our classic collection.


Gold – This is the suggested option for both of our classic brown leathers as it complements both the rich leather and any metalwork.

Additional Information
Positioning +

We use our expertise and experience to determine the best placement of the lettering appropriate to the design of the product.

If you have any questions regarding the positioning of the letters or how many letters will fit on a specific product please contact us via the contact page.



Pricing +

The price for embossing is a £10 flat fee for up to 6 characters. Please click here to contact us if you would like to personalise a larger item with more than 6 characters.

Moreover, if an item requires specialized hand embossing due to the size or complex positioning of the personalisation, this will incur additional costs.

To note: Our Croco leather cannot be embossed due to the textured finish of the leather.

Ordering & Delivery +

If you opt for personalisation on your purchased item(s), please allow an additional three days for the embossing process during busy periods. Often, however, we are able to send out your items within the first 24 hours. 

Due to the unique nature of embossed items, you will also not be able to return an item that has been personalised. Therefore, we are happy for you to purchase an item and return it to us be embossed once you are pleased with your delivery.

Meet Our Head Embosser, Philip


Our head embosser Philip is, as such, the crucial final step to creating each unique piece. He says that:


“Embossing is all about clarity and accuracy. It takes just a few moments to stamp the foil into the leather’s grain however, this is only a small part of the process. As with most crafts, the preparation is crucial for the best results. Ensuring that the heat, the pressure, the timing and the surface level is perfect takes years of practice.”

Understandably considering his passion for the work, Philip has been in the leather repair and retail trade since 1984. He ran a shop, workshop and online site until 2014. In January 2016, Philip then started at Maxwell-Scott. He uses two machines (the Kwikprint models 25 and 86) to tirelessly produce the very best result – he is rather a perfectionist in that way. This means that each job is immaculate as Philip stamps that final craftsman’s touch onto the piece.
