Add a ‘third dimension’ to your card!
Embossed business cards have a striking and bold 3- dimensional look & feel. The surface of the paper is raised by pressing from the reverse side of the paper, which add a touch of class and texture for grabbing attention and leave a deep impression.
Estimated production time: 2 business days (*should be added to overall printing production time.)
Applicable side: Press embossing can only be applied to one side of the cards
(recommended for single sided designs for Embossing area)
Standard size: within 20mm X20mm (oversized embossing also available at extra cost)
Type: Blind Press Embossing or Ink Embossing
Blind Press Embossing: embossing only over the paper. An embossed image that is not stamped over a printed image, not foil stamped, and the resulting raised image is the same color as the paper is blind embossing.
Ink Embossing: print with ink first and embossing applied over. Embossing applied to a printed image. It refers to embossing over ink.
* 1. Larger than size of 20mm x20mm or multiple areas must be custom quoted at
: firstname.lastname@example.org The prices on our website only include embossing area within 2cm(width)x2cm(height).
* 2. If we do the embossing on the front side, it will affect the back of the card. The
embossed part can be seen from the other side as well, like debossed.
Please note: for the technical limitation during the embossing process, there is a unavoidable offsetting (up to 1mm) to any direction from your design. So we don't reccomend to do ink embossing on small text and thin lines, just a little shifting will cause the embossing can't sit on the text at all and ruin your design. And 7daysprint will not be liable for the reasonable offsetting.
