EMBOSSING + EMBOSSED PRINTING | NYC
Embossing is an extra special method of raised printing that involves punching your logo or typography details upward with a die and counter die. Simply put: only the paper is raised, making it a stunningly beautiful print technique without ink (also called blind emboss). The pressmen at our New York City Based print shop emboss on-site, and we have many samples of the emboss technique on business cards, notecards, envelopes, stationery, folders and more.
Choose a tone-on-tone look with an ink-free blind emboss on white or light color paper. Go for a print worthy of The Met with a multidimensional, multi-level sculptured emboss. Add more definition & distinction with touches of a silver or gold foil stamp. Foil printing and emboss are highly compatible print methods allowing neatly-registered raised printing of glossy or shiny metallic lettering. Remember, what is punched upward appears as a recessed, punched down mirror image on the printed material’s reverse side. We can hide this sunken in effect by gluing a second piece of the same paper to the cards back, making it smooth and double-thick.
PRICING + PRINT PRODUCTION NOTES FOR EMBOSSED PRINTING
Pricing for embossed printing is based on quantity, paper type and the number of processes and machines that will be used to create the project. Embossed printing pricing begins around $300 for color printing with 250 quantity, printed on 18pt / 130# Uncoated Cover. More elaborate and custom production specs can run the price up considerably so it’s important to get your quote before proceeding. Production time is usually around 7-10 working days for simple custom projects with more work-intensive projects taking longer. Turnaround time is calculated from the date of PDF proof approval. If your color printing project has a hard due-date please let us know when making your request. Email us with your design file or specs to receive a custom quote for your printing project. All projects must have a custom quote number to proceed.
RUSH PRINTING EMBOSSED PRINTING

Due to the preparation of the spec, the availability of materials, and the individual setup required for custom printing, it is difficult to produce most custom jobs in less than 5 working days. To inquire about a rush job, please email artwork, specs and desired completion date ASAP to firstname.lastname@example.org. If we’re able to accommodate your schedule we will reply with pricing and additional costs for the rush.
