Embossed cards

Embossed the card creates a domed effect over the designated area on the card by pressing from the reverse side of the paper, thus, creates a raised graphical image on the business card top surface.

  • Blind Press Embossing: This stamping technique makes a domed effect without the color or foil on the card surface
  • Ink Embossing: This stamping technique makes a domed effect over the printed and foiled area on the card.
  • Embossing area: standard size — 1.5″x.75″.  2″x1.5″ is the maximum embossing area.

How to prepare the embossed business card artwork:
You need to create one additional file for the emboss masked area on the card. Here are the steps.

  1. Duplicate your business card file and name that file as “XYZ-mask.pdf.”
  2. From the XYZ-mask.pdf file, delete or take out the card elements that are not part of the mask area.
  3. Now, take the remaining masked area on the card and change the color to black color 0/0/0/100, and then save the file.
