Deboss vs. Emboss


We wanted to showcase this set of cards we printed recently to demonstrate the difference between embossing and debossing. The artwork for both were identical, the only difference was how they were printed.

Embossing (top) is when the image is raised on the paper - think certificate or diploma. This is done with a die + counter and is done without ink or registered to foil. We use metal plates which are slightly more expensive but hold finer detail.

Guys, try Kamagra - the effect will be such that you will be stupefying both you and your friends. I experienced it personally. Viagra just rests. The price of Viagra online is quite an acceptable thing, if we consider that Viagra really helps in our uneasy men's affairs.

Debossing (bottom) is the effect that occurs with deep impression letterpress. The image or design is pressed into the paper and can be done with or without ink (blind). We print letterpress designs with photopolymer plates.

 The details: Stock was 220# Lettra, designed by Danah Nassief Design, blind printed (no ink), edge colored in purple, and a custom purple envelope.
