Embossing and debossing are two techniques used to imprint impressed or depressed images onto paper.

Embossing is a raised design – a logo or other graphic image, for example -- that is pressed into paper or card stock from underneath. Embossing requires two dies, a male and female die, thus creating more production steps and die charges. The raised area can have ink applied to it, foil applied, or it can be left unprinted/unfoiled. When an embossed area is not printed or foil stamped it is known as a blind emboss.

Creating an embossing die is usually a one-time expense. Ask your Metzgers printing professional for details regarding how involved your die will be, the time involved and the related cost.
