Embossing is the raising of an image on the stock, and debossing is depressing an image into the stock. Both are very dramatic and add a great deal of beauty to any piece. Since embossing or debossing can be one level, multi-level, sculptured or with foil included, the options are unlimited.
Industrial Imprinting & Die Cutting Co., L.L.C. does all foil stamping and embossing/debossing in house. From the time your film, disk, email file or artwork is received, we have most dies completed within 24 hours. Sculptured and hand made dies require approximately 1 week. Our normal turn around is 4 to 5 workdays. If a faster turn around is needed, just let us know and we’ll do whatever it takes.
Embossing/Debossing always looks it’s best on heavier stocks. The lighter the stock, the more difficult it is to get everything out of the die with relation to detail and depth.
Another rule is the bolder the image…the better it will look. Very fine lettering or images are difficult to raise and make for a less than ideal end result.
