Embossing is done after printing with two metal embossing dies, one relief (like a rubber stamp) and the other recessed. With extreme pressure and heat, the paper is placed between the two dies to create a raised image. Forms of embossing include:
Blind: - embossing done on an un-inked area
Debossing - creates a recessed image
Foil-embossing - embossing done with a foil overlay
