Last week’s blog post was a peek ‘Inside the Wicked Wardrobe’, unveiling all of our favourite ways in which you can style your Something Wicked luxury leather accessories beyond just bondage, and outside the bedroom. If you haven’t had a chance to read it, we highly suggest you take a little detour and have a read – it will make you look at your accessories in a whole new light, and increase their use tenfold!

This week, we’re still talking accessories, and again, introducing you to something that you may not be aware of... did you know that all your luxury leather accessories from Something Wicked can also be personalised? That's right, you can have all your leather accessories embossed with a gentle kiss of gold; with up to three letters to make your accessories truly and uniquely yours. Whether it's a name, initials, or an acronym of a cute (or kinky) nickname you share with one another, embossed luxury leather accessories make the perfect personalised gift for a loved one this holiday season. A set of seductive handcuffs, an irresistible harness, a captivating collar and lead, or our spellbinding belts with chain attachments; whether you are new to the world of restraint, seasoned veterans, or just looking for something daring-but-decorative, there is a definitely a leather accessory in our range that would make the perfect addition to your lovers arsenal. Luxurious in their own right, the simple-but-special touch of personalisation is an extra thoughtful gesture to show you really care. Gift Something Wicked, something personalised, to someone wonderful, and we can guarantee you’ll be winning some extra brownie points...
So how does embossing work? While all our luxury leather accessories are expertly crafted by a talented female saddler in St Albans, our embossing finishes are done in-house in our Leeds based mill – where all our luxury lingerie is designed, cut and handmade by our skilled team of seamstresses. A dedicated machine, able to print any combination of letters, heats up to around 140°C, while we prepare your accessories to be printed. A hawk eye and a steady hand are fundamental when embossing, as you only get one opportunity to print to perfection; making these distinct, divine works-of-art even more special.
If minimalist is more your style, a ‘blind emboss’ can be done; this is a press minus the metallic foils, leaving a subtle, but beautiful, imprint on the leather. (Just drop us an email if this is something you’d prefer!) For foil embossing, we then layer the beautiful metallic foil over the leather, and line them up in the press. Precise positioning is principal in the process, ensuring your personalisation is perfectly central. When ready, a slow-but-steady pull on the lever presses the desired characters and the leather together, while the heat and pressure applied bonds the foil onto the imprint. A few seconds later, with a breath-holding strip back of the foil, your ornate – and now personalised – accessories are finished and almost ready to make their way to you!
All your Something Wicked orders come gift wrapped, at no extra cost, meaning your luxury deliveries are ready to be gifted to your loved ones, straight away. Hassle free, no accidently cutting the wrapping paper too small, or struggling to find the end of the sellotape. Instead, your Something Wicked goodies will come perfectly presented in a beautiful foil-finished black and gold box, wrapped in swathes of soft black tissue paper, sealed with our famous gold coin logo sticker – ready to be slipped straight under the tree for one lucky recipient.
While our leather accessories are breathtaking in their own right, we truly believe that making them personalised is the cherry on the cake, the olive in the martini – the perfect finishing touch. The ideal gifts for those who enjoy, or want to explore, a little restraint – tis’ the season to be wicked.
