In 1985 an American publisher wrote some “Binding specifications” including the line 

    “STAMPING: 1 operation in APRL S-64. Layout enclosed; die to come from Merit.” 

In 1986 this was changed to 

    “stamping: APRL Dusted Foil White Gold”. 


    • What does ‘APRL’ mean? and 

    • What does ‘S-64’ denote? 

Thank you,
