Work With Our 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.
