Embossed Business Cards

Emboss

Embossing is a process where plates and pressure are applied to create a unique raised detail on one side of the card. During this process, deboss or a reverse look of embossing on the opposite side of the card will be evident. This can be possibly combined with foil stamping, printed or just plain embossed business card.

  • - Embossing is best for logos and company name to enhance the design.
  • - The material that should be used for this process must be thick otherwise it might leave slight marks on the opposite side of the card due to the pressure used.

Debossed Business Cards

Debossing is the opposite of embossing. While the emboss process needs to have enough pressure to create a design debossing on the other hand only needs little pressure to create notches in your design or branding. This can also be combined with foil stamping, printed or just plain embossed business card.

  • - The material that should be used for this process must be thick otherwise might leave slight marks on the opposite side of the card due to the pressure used.

Thermography Business Cards

Thermography

Thermography is a printing process that relies on heat to create raised texture, clear and glossy finish. It is a practical alternative if you want to achieve a raised effect similar to engraving and embossing. Thermography is usually observed as an engaging and ideal printing process that adds prestige to any printed piece. This refers to two types of printing, both of which rely on heat to create the letters or images on a sheet of paper. The simplest type is where the paper has been coated with a material that changes colour on heating.

  • - Because this is a heat applied process, it can only be used on one side of the card and cannot be used in close proximity to foil. This finishing is ideal for larger areas that do not contain fine details.
