What is Embossing?
Embossing and debossing are both great ways to enhance your prints and bring attention to specific elements of your design. These processes add texture to business cards, post cards, brochures and more, by creating raised or depressed areas on the paper. Highlight important details, such as logo, graphic, or names! Adding a tactile dimension to your print is a memorable way to impress your customers and communicates premium quality.
By altering the surface of paper, embossing produces a raised, three-dimensional image. This is achieved by pressing a sheet of paper between two dies: one that is raised and one that is recessed.
When paper is placed between the dies, it is forced into the recessed die creating an embossed impression. A combination of heat and pressure is applied to the dies in order to squeeze the fibers of the paper, which results in a permanently raised area in the paper.
Features: The embossed various convex graphics and patterns show different shades of patterns, with an obvious sense of relief, which increases the three-dimensional sense and artistic appeal of the printed matter.
