Embossing creates a wonderful carved effect. Carfax uses traditional print machinery: a strong mechanical press pushes the paper into a hand-engraved metal die, which punches out the reverse image. The result is a bespoke paper sculpture.

Why use embossing?

If you’re looking to create a dramatic, three-dimensional effect, embossing is the way to raise the image in the paper. The embossed area can be printed with standard inks or foils for a coloured or metallic finish, or left blank so the 3D image speaks for itself. Embossing works best for large areas, such as logos or illustrations. For business, it’s a great way to project your identity; for personal stationery it offers a stamp of individual design. Embossed paper stands out from the crowd.
