Embossed and Debossed printing
Embossed printing services as well as debossed printing are two different techniques with similar outcomes. The difference is embossing is raised and debossing is depressed. It is an elegant process that refers to the impression of a design, decoration or lettering on a surface. A raised image is produced on paper by means of a die, and the application of pressure and heat. This is also commonly referred to as letterpress printing services.
When you hold a card, whether it is a business card or an invitation, with an embossed image that is well designed and crafted, it will to take you back to an era of quality and craftsmanship. That card is no longer a surface, but truly, a sculpture that outlives in your memory among the hundreds of cards you exchanged. No wonder artists, high-end boutiques and restaurants use embossing or debossing on their stationery to maintain the recognition of their brands.
