Foiling & Embossing
Foil blocking, Embossing & Debossing are typically commercial print processes. Foiling is the application of pigment or metallic foils to paper where a heated die (engraved metal piece) is stamped onto the foil, making it adhere to the surface and leaving the design of the die on the paper.
Embossing & Debossing alters the surface of paper or other materials by creating a three-dimensional or raised effect on selected areas. The process is an extremely simple and cost-effective way of enhancing the look and texture of the paper.
