What is Debossing?

Debossing is one of the specialty printing processes offered here at Gold Image Printing. You can request a custom quote to have it applied to certain products or start off with a product that features debossing, such as Deboss Wedding Invitations! But what is the debossing definition? What does debossed printing actually mean? You've come to the right place to find out! Debossing is in many ways the exact opposite of embossing. When you emboss something, you elevate a section of text, logo, or design, making it raised and appear closer to the reader. On the other hand, debossing printing involves creating a depression of the same magnitude, pushing a section of text, logo, or design away from the reader. For smaller artistic projects, you yourself may have made use of the process of debossing. The actual process is simple but is difficult to do en masse without proper assistance.

Debossing with Gold Image Printing involves putting your printing product through the press again, where our debossing machine uses a specialized die or debossing stamp to create the desired impression. You can deboss with ink to create the effect with a specific color or set of colors, or you can do something called blind debossing. Blind debossing is a process where a print is debossed without the use of ink. This creates that same debossing effect but leaves it up to the specialty process itself to make the desired impact on the reader or customer. Debossing may also be used in paper making, to create distinctive sheets of paper.

Make Use of Debossing

Debossing creates a dimensional depth for your printing product, allowing you to use it in a great variety of ways. As a highly regarded printing process, debossing can add luxury to your smaller printing projects such as handing out unique products to executives within your business, showing a group of customers that their loyalty really matters to you, personal art projects that would benefit from increased tactility, and much more! The sky's the limit when it comes to all the possibilities for debossing printing!
