Blind Embossing

Blind Embossing is the process of creating a raised, unprinted image, the result of contrasting level and texture. The best images are achieved using textured stocks. When embossing on textured presentation folder stock, the image is not only raised but smoother than it's background, improving contrast with a subtle but elegant appearance.


Single-Level Blind Embossed


Single level embossing requires simple black and white artwork and is the least expensive. Combined here with matte silver foil stamped text this embossed logo adds a nice contrast to the front of this impressive presentation folder.


Multi-Level Blind Embossed


Multi-Level embossing creates more than one dimension or depth and requires artwork separated by level. Images with complex designs are better reproduced with this process as overlapping elements are separated by level.



Sculptured Blind Embossed


Sculptured embossing is the most suitable for organic design since elements are not assigned specific levels but are cut on gradients giving the engraver maximum expressive control.
