Embossing

Debossing

  • Raised image created by applying a metal die from underneath the stock
  • Leaves a mirrored indentation on the other side of the paper
  • Indentation created by stamping a metal die on the front of the stock
  • Will not leave a mark on the other side of the stock if a thick paper is used
