Custom Embossed Films, Foils, Papers, Laminates, Fabrics

For more than 50 years, C.E. Shepherd has been the leader in the specialty embossing of plastic film, laminates, woven fabrics, paper, and foil. We are capable of processing material up to 140″ in width and in roll diameters to 36″. Our technology permits the embossing of specialized ultra-thin gauge engineered films, elastomerics and highly extensible substrates.

Precision controls adjust to accommodate even the most heat sensitive materials; we have achieved superb results at temperatures in excess of 500 degrees Fahrenheit. Accurate web tension is achieved through roll speed ratios within .1% thus permitting either absolute maintenance or alteration of product orientation for processing multiple webs of varying extensibility.

Our popular embossing patterns include cracked ice, taffeta, diamond, linen, and hexpin. These patterns may be applied to many engineered films including polyethylene, polypropylene, polyvinyl chloride, polyester and nylon films, metalized films and laminates. Our embossed films are in demand for geo-textiles, industrial mold release films, FRP films, food grade vacuum pouches and medical grade vacuum pouches. Our embossing has enhanced consumer products as well, including bookbinding, solar films, designer window shades and decorative foils.
