Have you ever needed the services of a Notary Public? Do you remember how the two sides of their little metal contraption crushed a seal (raised image) into the paper stock? This is a terrific way to visualize the embossing/debossing process.
Embossing and debossing are processes of pressing paper into relief using heat and force. The procedure involves the use of two etched metal dies, a raised (male) counter-die and recessed (female) die. The raised die forces the card stock into the recessed die to create the embossed impression. Embossing creates a raised impression while debossing creates an indented impression.
Embossing applies pressure to the backside of paper stock to alter the surface, giving it a three dimensional or raised effect. A die maker engraves the desired impression (image or copy) into several metal plates (embossing dies). Embossing is generally the process most often employed to attract attention or convey high quality textural contrast in relation to the surrounding area.
Debossing applies pressure to the front side of paper stock forcing the material away or down from the paper surface. Debossing is not as commonly used as embossing.
It is possible to achieve an elegant embossed effect with only one level of etching that renders a flat image with either a beveled or rounded edge. You can also achieve a more sculpted look with many levels of etching. Obviously, the more elaborate the design and etching, the more costly it is to make the die.
In your embossing journey, you will likely to run across common emboss types including blind emboss, registered emboss, combination emboss, pasteling, glazing, and scorching. You are also likely run across common emboss shapes such as flat with bevel, dome, v-shape chisel, flat with round edge, multi-level, sculptured, bevel-in, split bevel, and bevel out.
Embossing without the use of ink or foil (change in dimensional appearance only) to highlight the embossed area is called blind emboss. The blind embossing process provides a clean image, whether distinctive or subtle. In fact, the Notary Public’s seal is an example of blind embossing. Top notch card stock embossing incorporates a detailed die and bulky paper stock to enhance the depth and intricacy of the final piece.
To create a more dramatic effect, foil stamping can be applied to the raised surfaces. Combination stamping, or foil embossing, is the process of embossing and foil stamping the same image. A registered embossed foil stamp and embossing is done in two passes and requires close registration, that must be controlled, to keep the image and foil matched precisely. A combination emboss uses a combination of die to foil stamp and emboss in one operation. Your choice of paper stock may affect the final appearance of your foil stamped card stock. Papers such as 25% cotton, 100% cotton, vellum, laid stock and other porous papers will dull certain foils.
Embossing can be used for logos or accents surrounding logos, borders or highlights surrounding images or information, and elegant accents for distinctive symbols, images, graphics, or lines on your custom print products.
Although technology has advanced the process, foil stamping and embossing are crafts where experience is absolutely crucial to success. An experienced stamper will guide you through what can and cannot be achieved with foil and embossing.
Ink, foil, paper stock, and die are all key elements in the success of an embossed or debossed card stocks. Given the number of variables, it is best to get your print company involved at the design level. An experienced commercial print company like Accept Print will be able to guide you in your decisions so that your business cards or other print products are stunning and not mediocre. These things can only be learned through experience, this is something Accept Print prides itself on.

These tips can help you make the most out of your next business networking experiences.
- Take the time to introduce yourself to the organizer of the event or the members of the organization that is hosting the event. These contacts are aware of who all of the participants are and they can help direct you to people who may be important contacts for you based on your business, your current projects, etc.
- Always be prepared with sufficient business cards. Running low? You can order styles ranging from high gloss business cards to raised letter business cards from AcceptPrint.com!
- Don’t base your networking experience on quantity over quality. Make good connections and have real, engaging and worthwhile conversations. Running to meet every person in the room to disperse as many business cards as possible won’t get your worthwhile results and it can put others off.
- Keep conversations light and friendly.
- Remember that you may know someone who you can connect with someone. Business networking is about giving as much as it is about gaining quality contacts.
Do you want a Business Card that leaves a lasting impression, but is cost effective as well?
Well, here are some ways to create a Business card that will be unique and impressive.
#1: Rounded Corners- Having all or some of the corners on your business card rounded can make a huge difference in the overall look and feel of your cards.
#2: Magnets-Making magnets out of your business cards are a way to create a useful product with your contact information. And they are more likely to be stuck on the fridge and less likely to be tossed in the trash.
#3: Folded Cards- Folded cards let you stand them up like a table tent on an exhibit or display, and you can make them mini brochures with additional information about your company or services.
#4: Mini Cards- Mini cards are business cards that are smaller than the standard size. This can make the cards stand out, yet those receiving them can still stick them in their pocket or stack them with other business cards.
#5: Die Cut- Business cards in a different shape can be especially memorable. You can try something as simple as a circular card or create a custom shape.
#6: Rip Cards- Rip cards are traditionally used as door hangers or rack cards with a tear-off piece at the bottom that can be a coupon or business card. But you can create your own rip cards in business card size. Use it for a tear-off basic HTML cheat sheet, a hex code color table, or even a list of resource sites for your clients. You can do this by using the back of your cards, too.
#7: Plastic- For a stand-out card, try a clear plastic design. Not only are they creative and different than most other cards, but they are extremely durable.
#8: Recycled- Recycled cards are a great way to lessen your carbon footprint while creating a unique image for your business. There are a lot of options out there from recycled paper, to soy-based ink, to reused paper and materials.
There are so many ways to create a card that will leave a lasting impression.
