Embossing and Debossing

JiXing Paper Box can add the embossing and debossing finish to the custom paper bags, paper boxes, and the rigid boxes. Also, the embossing and debossing can go together with the spot UV and foil stamping to have a stronger visual impact.

What are Embossing and Debossing

Debossing and embossing are used to imprint images on paper, leather, or vinyl and are widely used on the luxury packaging, like the cosmetic paper boxes, luxury paper bags, and rigid boxes. In embossing, an image is pressed into the material so that the image raises from the surface. Debossing is the opposite of embossing; the area around the image is pressed so that the image is pushed down into the material rather than raised.

The Process of Embossing and Debossing

To begin the embossing process, the material is fit between the two dies and a press and heat are used to squeeze the die imprint into the material. The result is a raised and exact copy of the logo or artwork. The embossed area is smooth because of the heat and pressure act like an iron.
