Embossing is creating a 3D design in the printed paper.

This finish gives a real sense of quality to the print. The embossing effect can be used to give texture to the print and emphasise certain areas.

Embossing and Debossing are the processes of creating either raised or recessed relief images and designs in paper or board. An embossed image is raised against the background, while a debossed image is sunken into the surface of the material.
