Both blind embossing and blind debossing can produce beautiful, textured finishes to printed stationery. Embossing is what is referred to when the image is raised up out of the paper. Debossing is when the image is pushed down, below the surface of the paper.
As both processes can be very subtle in nature, it is common to combine them with other printing forms such as copperplate printing, foil blocking or lithography to produce truly memorable stationery.
It is important to bear in mind when creating artwork or text for a blind emboss that the lines of the image or wording are not spaced too closely together as this runs the risk that there will not be enough room for the image to be effectively formed within the paper. On thinner papers this can also cause the sheet to bow and bend.
