Make your cards look amazing with debossing! Helixgram Design specializes in debossed business card and invitations printing.
What is letterpress printing?
Letterpress printing is a traditional craft technique that uses a printing press to create relief patterns on paper or other materials. We hand press each card to give them a unique, distinctly crafted look and feel. And to make our debossed business cards even more luxurious, we combine letterpress with digital printing for a perfect finish.
What is the difference between embossed and debossed business cards?
Embossing and debossing are two sides of the same coin. While embossing is the process of creating raised relief patterns, debossed card designs are recessed images, sunken into the paper.
Important – Please read
Debossing involves a separate stage in the production process, after printing, laminating and trimming. Because it requires a separate press run, a tolerance of +/- 1/64 inch is standard for registration of deboss to printing graphic. Although we make all efforts possible to perfectly align the debossing to the print, a shift of up to 1/64″ may occur. Most of the time the shifting will only show on a few cards. Please keep that in mind when creating the artwork. It is not recommended to deboss fine lines or small text.
To avoid any shifting, you can chose a blind debossing. Blind means the debossed area is made without using ink on the debossed image. The debossing process alone creates the text or design on the paper.
