Work With The Best Pattern Embossing Company in New York

Embossing is a print finishing technique of raising the print surface. This makes the printed characters stand out and emphasizes the design element of the graphical work. It is not sufficient to speak of embossing without its twin brother debossing. Debossing is the exact opposite, creation of indents on a print surface. It usually occurs on the opposite face of an embossed paper by default.

In embossing paper or any other surface for that matter two principles are generally applied; heat embossing and dry embossing. In heat embossing, a layer of powder is added to the surface, while in dry embossing the paper is raised without the addition of any other material. Depending on the technique, different types of equipment are used. Let’s start off with heat embossing, where the main tools are embossing-powder and pad. The text to be embossed is curved to the pad. This pad is then pressed onto the surface to be embossed. The powder is applied to the impression that is left behind. A heat gun ensures the embossment stays there permanently. The only disadvantage with this style of embossing is that the quality of the end product is low.

On the other hand, for dry embossing, the main equipment is an embossing machine. This machine is able to make high quality and complex stamps; it is hence popular for printing birthday cards and greeting cards. An embossing card with the desired pattern is purchased or curved by hand. This is fed together with a blank card to the machine and the end product is a card with a similar design.

Like any other form of art, the end products of embossing are varied. In general, the embossed material adds weight to the printed material and help highlight specific aspects of the print’s design. Additionally, it enables you, the recipient of the message, to not only read but also feel the message that is being put across to you. An embossed company LOGO, for example, ensures you associate with the company and its products more strongly.

To make embossing more outstanding foiling can be applied or printings made on top. A golden printing or foil is the one you should go for if you intend to get everyone’s attention.
