The embossing process creates a raised image by applying pressure to the substrate. When an indentation is preferred, the process is referred to as debossing. Images can be blind embossed, registered to printing and combined with foil.
Embossing can create single level, multi-level or sculptured images. The desired image depth and amount of bevel can vary and should be appropriate for the selected paper. Soft, uncoated textured paper is most commonly used. Rigid paper and hard surfaces are susceptible to cracking and should be avoided when possible.
