A process in which the leather is stamped with an artificial grain under great pressure, such as an alligator grain – also the technique of applying pressure on the flesh side of the leather to make a design stand out in relief.
The art of producing figures in relief on both flat metal items and hollow articles such as pitchers, coffee pots or cups, by using punches or hammers on the back or inside of the article, creating the design on the front.
The process of giving relief to paper by pressing it with a die. Embossed designs are often found on the printed stamps of postal stationery (usually envelopes and wrappers). Selected stamps of certain countries have been embossed.
1) The creation of a three-dimensional design or image on paper is known as embossing. Heat and pressures reshapes the surface of the paper to create the image. Single, multi-level, beveled, and sculptured are the styles of embossing. Embossing can be done on plain paper or combined with ink, images, or foil for special effects. 2) Graphics software can simulate the three-dimensional look of embossing.
The act or process of impressing an image in relief on a printed surface or on blank paper for decorative purposes. The act or process of forming an image on a book cover, paper, leather, cloth, etc., without ink by use of a recessed die applied with heat and pressure. The term also applies to a finish on paper, cloth, leather, etc. See also BLIND EMBOSSING FINISHING OPERATIONS GRAINING THERMOGRAPHY
The process by which a design is imprinted onto the wood. A metal plate containing the design is heated & pressed onto the wood for a specific duration, leaving the design imprint. Examples of this are found on design #1020, #1726, & #1761.
An inkless process that can use multiple techniques--e.g. etching, stamping, carving, or casting--to create the matrix. The paper is subsequently forced into the matrix, often using a press, in order to create three-dimensional effects.
(1) Impressing an image in relief, to achieve a raised or depressed surface; either over printing, or on blank paper, for decorative purposes. (2) The swelling of the image on an offset blanket, due to its absorbing of solvents from the ink. (3) A finish on paper or cloth. to top
The process of using a heat tool to melt together pigment ink and embossing powder. This process causes the embossed areas to be raised above the surrounding areas. If clear embossing powder is used, the embossed area will reflect the color of the underlying pigment ink. If colored powder is used, the embossed area will reflect the color of the powder regardless of the ink color used. To emboss, first stamp your image using a pigment inkpad. Liberally sprinkle embossing powder over the stamped image. Tap any excess powder onto a piece of scrap paper. Apply heat from the underside of the stamped page until stamped areas rise. Be sure to keep the heat tool several inches away from the page and keep it moving at all times.
The process used to modify the surface texture of a smooth film to achieve special surface properties such as surface area, coefficient of friction, gloss, adhesion, etc., and alter the bulk density of the film. For example, embossing forms a waffle from a pancake.
An inkless technique used to create a slightly raised or three-dimensional effect by using pressure on a flat surface so that the paper takes on the physical characteristics of the relief plate or block.
Creating a raised design on card stock, paper or other material using either a brass stencil with a light source and stylus, or with stacked stencils (Fiskars ShapeBoss) and a stylus. Either way, the results are gratifying.
A printing process using no ink. Metal dies are used to stamp paper so what is left behind is the imprint of the design. Embossing is popular on the borders of many invitations, accessory cards, and informals.
Metal plates raise the print on the paper. If you run your finger over embossed stationery, you will feel the raised letters. No ink is used. Embossed Graphics is NoteworthyNotes' primary online vendor that sells embossed stationery.
The raised smooth surface created after a pigment inked image has been covered with embossing powder and heated with a heat tool or over a toaster to melt the powder. This method gives your creation shining raised images and added texture.
To change the shape of a thin material or sheet from flat to shaped, so that there are areas that are raised and/or recessed from the rest of the surface, usually without rupturing the material ( perf-embossing is the most notable exception). To learn more, see definition of embossing on the Technology page.
Raising in relief from a surface. In printing, to press paper into the cavities in a metal die leaving three-dimensional words or designs on the paper. Embossing can be combined with Foil-Stamping or printing methods using ink.
A technique using stamps with embossing or pigment ink, embossing powder and a heat source to create raised images. Stamp image with ink, then sprinkle embossing powder over image. Tap excess powder and reserve for future use. Heat image until powder melts.
Performed after printing, this technique produces a raised or depressed stamped image (artwork or typography) onto the surface of the paper. It is done using engraved metal embossing dies, extreme pressure, and heat. Embossing styles include: blind, emboss and foil-embossed.
A process performed after printing to stamp a raised or depressed image (artwork or typography) into the surface of paper, using engraved metal embossing dies, extreme pressure, and heat. Embossing styles include blind, deboss, and foil-embossed.
1) Manufacturing technique which imitates carving by compressing the wood around what is to be a raised, decorative area. 2) (Leather) The process in which permanent artificial grain patterns are added through heat and pressure to corrected grain hides.
The following are the types of embossing that we can specify: Blind Embossing: Stamping done over a non-printed or foiled area in which the image is raised. This process calls for a die. Blind Debossing: Stamping done over a non-printed or foiled area In which the image is lowered. This process calls for a die. Embossed Hot Stamping: The process takes place during the foiling stage. The dimensional image is registered so that it matches up to the foil. This process also deems a die.
A raised effect created when heat or cold pressure is used to impress a design into wallpaper. Best used when installing over imperfect wall conditions. Never use a seam roller on this paper. Because this will flatten or burnish the raised effect.
A process performed after printing that uses a metal die, heat, pressure, and a counter die to reshape a printing surface, creating a raised image (artwork or typography) in relief. Done either as overprinting or on blank paper (called blind embossing). An especially effective technique when used with textured and embossed paper finishes.
Either the process of adding textured items to the pulp of handmade paper (e.g., adding leaves when still wet) or heating embossing powder over a fresh rubber stamped image (e.g., powder heats and turns shiny.
Using a tool which scratches a line in the surface rather than actually removing metal (though very small amounts are usually removed due to tearing). Mostly used on sharply curving or complex surfaces when a fine pattern is required, particularly with difficult materials.
A metal forming process for producing raised or sunken designs or relief in sheet material by means of male and female dies, theoretically with no change in metal thickness or by passing sheet or a strip of metal between rolls of the desired pattern.
Technique of wet (embossing) using slow drying ink, embossing powder, and heat source to create a raised surface of the stamp image. Dry (embossing) to produce a raised image by pushing the paper up from the back often done with stencils or brass templates and an embossing tool like a stylus or burnisher, which have a smooth end that will not tear the paper.

The textured pattern applied to the strapping surface. Quality embossing will increase joint efficiency, enhance split resistance and improve stiffness characteristics. However, an overly embossed strap can increase the thickness and lower break strength.
Embossing creates a dimensional image through the use of a metal die and counter die. Paper is pressed between two dies, while heat is applied to expand the paper fibers. Dies can be made to form single-level, multi-level or sculpted images.
Impressing surface with dies to produce a relief image or texture. Often utilising a set of matched male and female dies to get the desired effect. Can also be combined with hot foil stamping in one (1) action.
Sometimes referred to as hot stamping, embossing is a process that punches your design onto the product creating a subtle three-dimensional indentation. The effect is discreet and exclusive. It looks very effective on compendiums, leather luggage tags and leather or vinyl business card holders.
Producing a raised surface on a substrate. When deliberately created, a metal die is used to press a pattern or image into the material. Sometimes embossing is an unintended and unwanted effect created when the wet ink is pulled up from the surface of the substrate as the printing plate is lifted away. See waffling.
The process whereby the metal stamping dies are contoured to produce a raised 1/16 inch "3-D" surface on the front and back of lunch boxes. Used exclusively by Aladdin since 1962 for dramatic action figures.
A process of altering the natural grain of the leather by using etching, engraving or electrotyped plates or rollers creating a very uniform grain pattern. Embossing may be done to disguise defects or to create exciting designs.
To print a plate without ink is known as blind embossing. A photopolymer plate can also be developed to produce an embossing plate. Because a very deep intaglio is needed for embossing, no screen exposure is made. The embossing pattern can be created by exposing the plate using a high- contrast image positive that has a reduced tonal range. Embossing can be done in an ordinary etching press.
Print of a relief element on a dampened paper without ink. The image is revealed with a raking light falling across the physical surface of the impression. Sometimes referred to as “blind” embossing. engraving (1) Intaglio or relief process that incises lines with burins or gravers into metal or end-grain blocks. (2) The print made from such a plate or block. etching An intaglio process in which an acid-resistant coating is applied to a plate, an image is cut into the ground with a needle and then submerged into an acid bath to establish the image into the plate. The incised line is then inked and printed onto a sheet of dampened paper.
A raised or molded decoration produced either in the mold or formed separately and applied before firing. On metal, it is the process of decorating by striking or impressing the metal into a die with force.
A process used to create a raised surface, or a raised element printed without ink. End grain Block A woodblock usually boxwood, maple, cherry, or other fruitwood, cut across the grain and used for wood engraving.
Embossing is a calendaring process which produces a raised design or pattern in relief. The design is pressed into fabric or leather by passing it through hot, engraved rollers. Velvet or plush is embossed by shearing the pile to different levels or by pressing parts flat.
A process for producing raised or sunken designs in sheet material by means of male and female dies, theoretically with no change in metal thickness. Examples are letters, ornamental pictures, and ribs for stiffening. Heavy embossing and coining are similar operations.
Embossing is the process of creating a three-dimensional image or design in paper and other ductile materials. It is typically accomplished with a combination of heat and pressure on the paper. This is achieved by using a metal die (female) usually made of brass and a counter die (male) that fit together and actually squeeze the fibers of the substrate.
