Embossing: Perfect for creating a tactile, premium and distinctive finish

You know the beautiful and tactile effect you see when an area of card is raised? That's embossing. Embossing is a print process which uses the same principle as die stamping. A 'female' block is produced using zinc, magnesium, copper, brass or steel, which are either process engraved to one depth or hand engraved to achieve a finish with multiple depths. The material to be embossed is pushed through a die using a 'male' counterforce. Embossing can be used to create stunning finishes, and is ideal to pick out design details such as a logo or brand device.
