Embossing is a process of adding a decoration or statement to a product. It is commonly used on the covers of scrapbook albums, report folders, invitations, menus, announcements, labels, letterheads, business cards, and certain products. It is a great way to add a touch of style to a product and to grab the attention of recipients in business.

Embossing Possibilities

Embossing can be used for a variety of products and occasions. The process uses heat and stamping with dyes or foils. After a product has been embossed, the result is permanent. You can emboss text and graphics in a variety of colors, fonts, styles, and sizes onto your product of choice.

Embossing often looks sophisticated and professional when added to documents, books, or products. You can use the process to label books or pamphlets, or to add a company logo to any product. Titles, dates, names, logos, and unique designs are common elements that may be embossed. Though, gold and silver are most commonly used, you can choose from a variety of colors to emboss a product.

You can choose to purchase your own machine or use the services of a printing company to emboss materials. Machines can be very expensive to purchase, depending on the items you wish to emboss. A printing company can offer advice on design and location of what you will emboss. You can visit these printing companies in person, or place and order from a printing service website.
