about us

shiny happy people

Here at Metallic Elephant we are passionate about hot foil printing, debossing and embossing.

Metallic Elephant was formed ten years ago because we felt traditional skills and hot stamping machines were falling by the wayside due to cheap imports. Our mission is to supply high quality products at competitive prices, while remaining true to British heritage and craftsmanship.

We’re proud to be a family-owned business. Karl’s industry expertise is unrivalled, having spent over 20 years as a leading mechanical engineer at John T Marshall. Co-founder Ros, with a long career in print behind her, ensures the highest standards of quality and service in everything we do, while production manager Vincent (our very first employee and brother-in-law) oversees every single hot foil block dispatched to clients.

The real boss, however, is Ellie our Miniature Schnauzer! Why not call in to see us? With tea and cake at the ready, we look forward to helping you #MakeItShiny
