Raised Up or Deeply Impressed!

Embossed business cards are the perfect way to set yourself apart from the competition and make a lasting impression on your clients.

Embossing is a unique print technique that creates raised designs and textures, giving your business cards an eye-catching 3D effect that will draw attention and stand out from any other card.

Blind embossing, registered embossing, debossing can be used for intricate designs.

Adding foil stamping, die cutting, on thick uncoated papers will bring extra detail and depth to your design.

With blind embossing, the design is pressed directly into the paper without any color added to it, leaving a crisp outline with sharp contrast that pops off the page.

Plus, if you choose to use thicker soft cotton or uncoated paper stock, then you can have raised or lowered 3D effects as well.

Embossed business cards are sure to leave a lasting impact on anyone who sees them while helping you create a memorable brand identity in no time!

What are embossed business cards?

Business cards with an embossed design look professional because the design is raised above the card's surface. These cards have something called "raised print" on them, which makes them stand out in a stack of other business cards. You can add your company logo, contact information, job title, or anything else you want to your embossed business cards.

In the process of embossing, one die block is pressed into the paper over and over again until a pattern or design is made. Depending on the type of paper you use (uncoated, soft-touch suede, or silk), you can get different levels of detail and accuracy.

What is blind embossing?

Blind embossing gives materials texture and character. It involves pressing a design onto material without ink. Metal dies are used. This creates a raised or sunken 3D surface that feels different to the touch.

Medieval Europe handcrafted blind embossing. Modern machinery makes mass-produced blind embossing cheaper. Book covers and business cards are typically embellished using this style. Blind embossing can also be used on leather wallets and handbags and wood or clay sculptures to create detailed patterns that stand out from different perspectives.

Can you do foil and embossing on the same card?

Yes, both foiling and embossing can be done on the same card. Foiling and embossing are two different ways to print that can be used to make cards for any occasion.

Foil is a thin layer of metal that is printed on paper or cardstock to make a shiny metallic finish. It adds a lot more detail to your cards and makes them look more interesting and professional.

Embossing, on the other hand, involves pressing a part of your design into the paper with a carved plate or die. This makes one part of the surface stand out because it is higher than other parts.

When you use foil and embossing together, you can combine different ways to print on one piece to make unique textures and designs. The combination can be striking; it gives depth to a single image and looks great on invitations or business branding materials like business cards or letterhead stationery sets.

How do I emboss business cards?

Choose a paper type and weight that matches your design before embossing business cards. An embosser plate with raised graphics or lettering will be pressed into or onto the card. Before embossing, you will need to order one from a specialized supplier.

When you're ready, place the printed stationery on top of your work space. Place a copy of your artwork with the ink up on top. Use repositionable adhesive strips to secure the parts during embossing.

Next, gently set your plate on the artwork and press hard for 8 seconds till you're satisfied. Acetone can remove excess glue around embossed parts. After that, cut and fold the pieces.

What papers are best for embossed business cards?

For embossing, cotton and other papers that don't have a coating work best. When we emboss on thinner cards, like 16pt, the debossed side shows through. Choose a thicker or double-sided card if you don't want it to show on the other side.

So, we'll emboss one of the cards and then glue a second card to the back to make that side flat.

Even though we can emboss silk or soft-touch coated cards, the impression doesn't show up as well as when we use uncoated cards.
