Free Travel Accessory With Each Luggage Bag Purchase

Personalised Leather Gifts

Our embossing service provides the final touch to a gift or a treat to yourself, creating a truly unique piece. We use a heat-embossing process to stamp your briefcase, handbag, luggage or accessory with up to 15 letters with coloured foil in gold, silver, copper or in blind (ie no colour).

It is one of the last steps from leather tanner to your door in creating a piece to treasure for a lifetime.



Usually, a set of initials is the classic choice for personalisation of your chosen leather bag or accessory. However, important short quotes or dates are also wonderful ways in which to create a unique, and sentimental, gift.

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


Our in-house embossers use a traditional hot foil method to emboss your chosen letters onto the surface of our full-grain leather bags, briefcases and accessories.


We offer 4 colour options:

Blind – This is a subtle option for embossing and means that there is no foil added in the process, leaving no colour transfer.

Silver – For our black vegetable-tanned leather, silver embossing particularly matches the metalwork.

Copper – A modern choice, copper works well on all of our classic leathers for those with contemporary taste.

Gold – This is, perhaps, the most traditional colourway and suits both of our chestnut tan and dark chocolate brown classic leathers.

Additional Information

We use our years of experience and expertise to position your lettering in the perfect place for the item.

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

Pricing +

The price for embossing is an additional AUD 24 flat fee for up to 6 characters. Importantly, however, if an item requires specialized hand embossing due to the size or complex positioning of the personalisation, this will incur additional costs.

Please click here to contact us if you would like to personalise a larger item with more than 6 characters.

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. But often, we are able to send out your items out 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. For him:



“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.”


Philip has been in the leather repair and retail trade since 1984, a symbol of his passion for his work. He began by running a shop, workshop and online site until 2014. But,  it was in January 2016, that 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.


At Maxwell-Scott, we offer gifts which will be treasured for a lifetime – taking the stress out of the art of gift giving.  In our family-run factory in the heart of Italy, each of our pieces is handmade by skilled artisans with a depth of decades of knowledge. The craftsmanship, therefore, involved in the creation of your gift ensures that it will last many years to come. In fact, we offer a 25 year guarantee. The final flourish of personalisation with the recipients initials lastly provides a gift which is totally unique to them.
