Embossingi is a process performed after printing that uses a metal die to reshape a printing surface, creating a raised image. Embossing can be applied to overprinting or on blank paper (called blind embossing). Blind embossing can be an especially effective and eye-catching effect when used with textured and embossed paper finishes.
