Paper Embossing & Debossing

Embossing & Debossing

Do you want to create a special effect? Why not try embossing or debossing? This procedure will create a raised or lowered image on paper and other substrates.

Embossing raises an image, while debossing lowers or presses down the image. Debossing is mainly used on leather, soft papers, or anywhere you want a depressed image. Blind embossing refers to an image raised with no printing.

Both methods are achieved by pressing your paper or substrate between a female die and a male counter on a controlled pressure press. Debossing can be achieved using a male die only.
