Embossing & debossing

Bring textured detail to your label design with our embossing & debossing

Embossing and debossing are popular techniques in the world of label manufacturing that lend an appealing three-dimensional quality to your label. Embossing is a method where selected areas are raised above the label surface; debossing does the opposite.

Embossing and debossing are achieved with matched male and female dies bearing the desired design. The label material is placed between the dies and pressed into the recesses of the female die, creating either a raised or dipped effect. In both cases, the finished effect lends a subtle and sophisticated textural quality to your label.
