What is Foil Stamping?

Foil stamping is a printing procedure offered at Executive Printers. Heat, pressure, and a metallic paper (foil) is used to create different shiny designs, textures, and graphics on various materials. Foil stamping gives the stamped design a shiny and amazing look that is increasingly becoming the preferred method of printing in the industry.

During the foil stamping process, the die or the sculpted metal plate comes in contact with the foil and transfers a thin layer of the foil film onto the appropriate surface. As the metal plate is heated, the foil sticks to the surface only in the design of the plate and in the required areas with the desired imprint finishing.

What is Embossing?

Embossing is the creation of an impression of some kind of design, decoration, lettering or pattern on a surface. A few different surfaces that look great when embossing are paper, cloth, metal and even leather. In regular printing or an engraving, plates have to be pressed against the surface to leave an imprint. However during embossing, the pressing raises the surface adding a newer dimension to the object.

Embossing is a stylish process that changes the nature of the material that has been embossed. More often than not it enhances the standard and quality of the product. For example, an embossed wedding card immediately changes the entire meaning conveyed by the invitation. It gives the impression that the wedding is going to be a high profile wedding and an elegant ceremony.

Embossing thus makes things more appealing than they were originally. Even the simplest of objects can become fabulous pieces of art by using a technique as easy as embossing. Of course, how good an embossed object looks depends entirely on the quality of embossing. Poor quality embossing can completely kill the look of an object. However, good quality embossing can make an object very impressive.

Different kinds of paper may display different kinds of embossed effects. There are also many different kinds of embossing that can be done such as blind embossing, tint embossing and glazing to achieve different results. The process of embossing is relatively inexpensive and has many uses.
