Different Types of Embossing Processes
Blind Embossing – is any embossed image which involves no registration to a printed image or a foil stamp image.
Register Embossing – is any embossed image that relatively or exactly registers to a printed image or a foil stamp image. Please note: depth of a register emboss will be limited due to inks inability to stretch with the paper fibers.
Debossing – is an image that goes below the actual paper level or is sunk into the paper. This process can also be either blind or registered.
- The entire embossed image must also be fully covered by the foil.
- The embossed image must be slightly rounded in order to get the foil to adhere completely.
Foil Stamp & Register Emboss – is accomplished in two press passes. This is the only way we can bevel emboss a foil stamped image, or emboss only specific parts of a foil stamped area.
