Embossing is a printing process that raises an image from paper or card material, giving it a 3D look.
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.
Debossing is the opposite of embossing, where an image is pressed into the material, giving it a subdued look.
The debossed area can be left blank or filled in with ink or foil stamping, much like embossing. Unlike embossing, debossing does not alter the reverse side of your printed material, allowing you to use both sides.
During debossing, a metal stamp is used to leave an impression on the cover of a notebook. We achieve flawless prints every time by dialing in the ideal temperature, speed, and pressure balance.
