Embossing provides a difference you can feel. Immediately.
Embossing adds dimension to your printed piece by re-shaping the paper using a specifically crafted die, heat, pressure and a counter. Adding embossing for texture and dimensions can create an appealing contrast to your design.
The dies need to emboss are made of magnesium, copper or brass. There are many different kinds of embossing dies, which include single-level, multi-level, sculpted, or embossing in combination with foil. Each produces a unique embossing effect.
Since embossing produces a dimensional image, the paper used should complement and not compete with the dimension in the printed image. As a general rule, smooth stocks lend to embossed designs well.
