Blinford Graphics Ltd was established in 1985 and has remained a family run business, building on more than 100 years of combined experience to become one of the few UK companies to produce high quality Zinc and Magnesium printing and letterpress plates, hot foil and embossing dies as well as bespoke memorial plaques.


Our flexible working approach, attention to detail and our commitment to high quality manufacturing has been the basis of our business for the last 30 years.

We manufacture a wide range of metal thickness: 












  • 16g (1.63mm) zinc, ideal for letterpress printing/foiling onto paper, card, thin plastic.

  • 8g (4mm) zinc and magnesium, can be used for everything the 16g can do plus thin leather materials 

  • 5g (5mm) magnesium, suitable for paper, card, plastic, leather material and can be etched deeper. 

  • ¼” (6.35mm) is the thickest and deepest etched metal we produce.  This is most popular for the leather trade.
