When deciding how to imprint your logo onto a promotional product, it is important to know the difference between embossing and debossing.

Put Simply:

Embossing raises your pattern above the background level.

Debossing sinks the pattern into the background.

An Example of Debossing:

As you can see in this debossed wallet by MindSpark the pattern he been indented into the wallet material. Creating an elegant piece, whilst still providing high quality and detail within the design.

An Example of Embossing:

This reusable cling film by mindsparkz has embossed the design in order to make it stand out in a slick and stylish way.


Why Emboss or Deboss?

Not only do these 2 techniques have an aesthetic appeal, they have many functional uses. Both are commonly used to make paper objects like cards in stationary business, paper bags etc.

Use embossing and debossing to add a new dimension for logos, lettering or patterns. Use on promotional products to portray a professional yet elegant look, increasing the perceived value of the item.
