You often hear the phrase these days that, 'Less is more'! and the same could certainly be said of blind embossing. Sometimes something under stated says more than something that's trying to shout out loud. The same can be said for a company logo that is blind embossed.

By their subtlety blind embossed logo's and text tend to draw the eye in and gain more attention than flat print alone, adding a three dimensional element. Combine colour silk-screen print or varnish and you have a truly eye catching effect. Ideal for high end products such as conference folders, menus and corporate handbooks.

The Technical Stuff !


To create an embossed image your artwork is etched onto the surface of either a copper or magnesium plate. The cost of this die is determined by the surface area of the image you require.

If you're a graphics designer, advertising agency or printer you probably won't need any advice from us on artwork requirements. If you're not then don't worry we can help or liaise with your printer or designer if you wish. The file formats we work with are:

• High resolution pdf

• eps (Encapsulated Post Script)

• ai (Adobe Illustrator)

Please Note:
JPEG files are not suitable for use as artwork as the edges of the images they produce are pixelated and not crisp.

Whatever you want printed needs to be shown as solid black on a white background and to the size you want to see it printed in, this applies for foil blocking and blind embossing. For more than one colour on silk screen printing the artwork will need to be colour separated.
