Embossing is the process of creating a raised image or design in paper to create a 3D effect. Debossing is the opposite technique. An embossed pattern is raised against the background, while a debossed pattern is sunken into the surface of the material.
Using heat and pressure, a metal plate containing a design, pattern or text is pressed into paper forming a raised or lowered image. Embossing is regularly used on important features such as a logo, visual element or brand pattern. This effect particularly works well on thick uncoated papers.
