Embossing & Foil Stamping


Embossing and debossing refers to the impression of a design, lettering, decoration on a surface such as paper, to create this effect printing plates are pressed together against the surface of the paper. Embossing produces a raised impression while debossing creates a depressed impression.

Embossing creates a new dimension to your project. It creates an elegant piece. It changes your project from ordinary to extraordinary as it conveys a different meaning through your project.

Keep In Mind

  • Be aware that embossing is a process that manipulates your paper and as such also manipulates your design
  • Use more kerning between your type as letters can merge together
  • It will also make elements look smaller, therefore you should avoid fine details
  • Keep your elements bolder
