Embossing

Soft and subtle, the embossing method creates tactile impact without the use of any colour. It requires two custom made plates that fit into each other to alter the surface of your paper.


The plates fit into each other with precision, so that when the paper is pressed between them, the raised plate forces the stock into the recessed plate. A specific level of pressure is applied in order to squeeze the fibres of the paper, which results in that beautiful permanently raised area that is just so hard to resist running your fingers over (donít say we didnít warn you!).

Be sure to check out our Artwork Guidelines for important details to consider when creating your designs for blind letterpress or embossing.

Whilst embossing is available on a variety of stocks, we recommend using a mid-to-light paper colour so that the shadows of the embossing can help with legibility.
