“Tell me, what is embossing”?
Glad you asked! There is only one true embossing in print, the result being where the image or text stands proud of the sub-straight (paper or board), All printers have their own preferred method but Impress foil or print the image on our own very special 640gsm card stock. We have do this this with perfect precision and call it ‘register’. Next comes the tricky bit, the card is turned over and the image is pushed through using an embossing die, which is s two part set much like a jelly mould. As we use a heavy card as standard two tonnes of pressure is needed to emboss the image, The process is slow and demanding but well worth the finished result.
Artwork requirements: Vector artwork is important to create the dies.
