A form of relief printing in which ink is applied to the raised surface of a printing plate. The pressure with which the press forces this plate into the paper during printing results in the deep impression and tactile quality that has become synonymous with modern letterpress.
Using relief metal dies, a thin layer of foil is imprinted on to the surface of the paper using pressure and heat. Unlike letterpress, foil stamping can achieve a true metallic or opaque finish.
Unlike letterpress, which results in an impression into the paper, Embossing creates a raised image by pressing the paper between a male and female die.
A cost effective flat printing method that allows for an endless number of colours to be used. Can be especially beautiful when combined with one of our other printing options.
