Embossed Finish

« Back to Glossary Index

In the trade printing area, embossing finish refers to raising parts of paper or cardboard for extra texture and emphasis. This dimensional print finish adds additional depth to the embossed elements, to create tactile shadows and highlights in a design. Embossed finish adds a tactile, unique feeling and dimension to your design, so it resembles wood, cloth, leather, or some other textured pattern.
