Embossing gives a 3D look that draws attention to the part of the notebook you want your audience to focus on the most.
Embossing requires two dies to achieve the 3D appearance, one for the front and the back, which sandwich the paper. If you want the embossed logos or images to stand out, it's important to utilize a detailed die and thicker paper or card stock.
Remember to consider the reverse of your print while finalizing your embossed designs. While the raised image draws attention to the target region, embossing also alters the print's reverse side.
Consider highlighting your logo or contact details to make critical information appear contemporary and stylish.
Debossed notebooks are the gold standard for classic notebook branding. Debossing can convey the notebook's quality and handmade character without overwhelming the user with artwork or other visual aspects.
Debossing is the opposite of embossing. You can deboss a logo, text, or other images to give your printed material a subdued look. The debossed area can be left blank or filled in with ink or foil stamping, much like embossing.
Debossing, in contrast to embossing, does not alter the reverse side of your printed material so that you can use both sides.
During debossing, a metal stamp is used to leave an impression on the cover of a notebook. We get flawless prints every time because we dial in the ideal temperature, speed, and pressure balance.

A suitable material for embossing because it is durable, flexible, and has a unique texture that complements the raised or depressed designs created during the embossing process. The strength of leather allows it to withstand the pressure and heat required for embossing, while its flexibility allows it to conform to the shape of the embossing plate.
Embossing on business cards stationery is a cost-effective option. With a touch of sophistication and texture, an embossed emblem on paper packaging will make a lasting impression compared to standard packaging.
Plastic embossing is done using heat and pressure to shape the material. Embossing can add texture, branding, and a premium appearance to plastic products like plastic cards. It is essential for adding value to products and can enhance product differentiation.
For the logo imprint on the embossing material, you'll need a cliché, a template of your logo (or another picture or word). Here is a compiled list of the most frequently used embossing materials and their run length.
