Foil Stamping and Embossing
Foil Stamping and Embossing add an elegance to your piece that is unmatched by other techniques. It will bring your project to life when light is reflected on it and it is one of our most popular finishes used by our clients.
Foil and Embossing on Boxes and Cards
Hot Foil Stamping
Hot foil stamping is a process that applies foil onto a surface using a heated die. When applied, it leaves the foil permanently adhered. Embossing can be combined with foil to give more dimension to a piece.
Embossing & Debossing
Embossing and debossing are the processes of creating raised or recessed images and designs in paper and other materials. An embossed image is raised against the background, while a debossed pattern is sunken into the surface of the material. Embossing can be combined with foil to give more dimension to a piece.
