VABC Raucous Auction: New Foil Stamping Equipment (Angel Gift)

foil-stamping-imageWe’re less than two weeks away from the Raucous Auction to support the Virginia Arts of the Book Center, a program of the Virginia Center for the Book. As the event approaches, we’re highlighting some of the fantastic items and packages that you can bid on in advance or on the night of the event.

New to this year’s Raucous Auction are Angel Gifts, which provide opportunities to donate directly to the VABC and its programming. Help the VABC upgrade their foil stamping press, a machine used to print book titles on cloth.

Foil stamping is a special kind of printing procedure where heat, pressure, and a metallic paper (foil) is used to create different shiny designs and graphics on various materials. Foil stamping gives the stamped design a shiny and incredible look and is increasingly becoming the preferred method of printing in many an industry.

For your generosity, you will also receive a book from the VABC collection. To learn more about this and other auction items or to purchase tickets to the Raucous Auction on Friday, November 18th, visit the VABC’s online auction.
