Werner Printing & Engraving offers a wide variety of options when it comes to foil embossing your design. Foil embossing and foil stamping are the processes by which a heated die is pressed into foil. This causes the foil to adhere to a variety of papers. Foil embossing or foil stamping your design can be combined with many other processes we offer here at Werner Printing such as engraving, digital printing, thermography, and die-cutting.
Products that commonly use foil embossing and foil stamping:
• Business cards: Black stock accompanied by metallic, white or gold foil is by far our most popular request.
• Wedding Invitation Suites: Save-The-Dates, Invitations, RSVPs, Reception Cards, Direction Cards, Accommodations Cards, Thank You cards, Menus, programs, & table cards
• Envelopes: Personal stationery, commercial stationery, and custom sizes
• Custom Marketing Materials
• Post Cards
• Memo Pads
Embossing, Debossing, and Blind Embossing; what is the difference?
Embossing uses a die in combination with foil to press a design into paper, which causes the image to scale above the paper. Debossing is when the image sinks into the paper. If foil is not used in combination with the die, this is considered blind embossing or blind debossing. Whether you are combining foil with the die, embossing or debossing is a remarkable way to make your design stand out.
Available types of foils with varied finishes and colors that we offer:
• Matte: This can be an option if you are looking for subtlety and legibility.
• Metallic Silver or Gold: Recommended if you desire something really eye-catching.
• Gloss: Recommended for logos such as those on pocket folders or brochures. This finish is best for anything not requiring a fine type or intricate detail.
• Clear: Offers a subtle yet classy look to your finished product; commonly requested on the back of business cards to leave an understated but lasting impression with your clients.
