Silver Ink Business Cards
Business cards are an extremely important part of showing the world who you are and what you represent, so it is rather surprising that so many professional businessmen and woman still use extremely plain and boring business cards. In an age where first impressions are everything, do you really want to hand someone a business card that they’ve more or less already seen a few hundred times, or do you want to give them something unique that makes it far more likely that they actually remember you when they’re scanning in all these business cards at the end of the day, something that reminds them of you.
If you’d rather be remembered, silk business cards are a fantastic alternative to the standard run of the mill business card. Of course, becoming more memorable is not the only advantage provided by silk business cards. These business cards are also far more resistant to tears, folds, and creases, keeping your business cards looking as professional as they can no matter what they’ve gone through. Even water will find it hard to damage these cards, as they are far more water resistant than a standard business card. Of course, that isn’t to say you should go dunking them in water, but a little rain should not ruin their professional look.
Another problem that many people have with standard business cards is that they simply do not last as long as they would like. Sure, at some point you have to replace a business card because some information has changed, perhaps your job title or even your place of employment, but for the cards to become unreadable or just “well worn” before you reach that point is silly. People buy these cards in massive quantities, and for such a huge number of them to go to waste is pointless. Silk business cards, on the other hand, usually outlast the job title written on them, as their design prevents them from wearing down anywhere near as easily as standard business cards.
For those people who really like to stand out, there are also options available to add spot gloss and foil effects to the business cards. While there is no functional difference added with these layers, it makes the business cards even more unique than they already are, making you even more memorable.

There are many different types of business cards that fit the bill, but what are the contributing elements to success?
- 1. Quality Paper
- 2. Quality Printing
- 3. Eye-catching, Relevant design appropriate to a particular industry
One way to catch attention and to show a studied attention to detail is to go for Raised Letter Business Cards. Raised letter business cards allow all of the words or pictures (or some of the words and pictures to emphasize key elements of the card) to be physically raised via a printing technique called thermography.
These raised letter business cards add aesthetics and focus visually as well as physically as the raised ink portions may also be felt.
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.
