Foiling & Embossing

Foiling & Embossing

Blind embossing, foil stamping and foil embossing are used to add extra graphic impact to your stationery, presentation folders, or report and book covers.

Foil stamping is the application of metallic foil (often gold or silver) or pigment to press a thin layer of foil onto the paper's surface with a heated die through heat and pressure. The foil can is pressed onto the paper as a flat image. Flat foil stamping can also be combined with embossing to create a more striking 3-D image.

Blind Embossing is an image pressed into the paper creating a three-dimensional design without the use of ink, foil or pigment. Blind embossing creates a more subtle effect.

Foil Embossing is combining both foil stamping and embossing, either with a foil embossing die or embossing an image that was previously flat foil stamped (known as "stamp and bump").
