There is something truly beautiful about an embossed business card, invitation or stationery. The texture and form of the paper come alive with the character of a particular font, logo or design.
Embossing is accomplished by applying plates made of copper, aluminum or brass. The combination of pressure and heat raises the level of the image higher than the substrate.
Debossing is similar to embossing, but recesses the design rather than raising it. Embossing without ink, so that the image is raised but not colored, is called “blind embossing”.
Embossing used in conjunction with ink, so that the raised area is colored, is called color register embossing. Embossing used in conjunction with foil stamping is called combination stamping.
