Embossed Business Cards
Embossed business cards are made by using a unique technology that uses relief printing to make business cards look exceptionally sophisticated but still adequately simple.
You don’t have to worry about colors and their combinations if you want to have stand out business card. In any situation, a colorless raised print will turn a boring design into a unique product.
Emboss with foil
Use gloss highlights and rise of some details, so while the height of the emboss itself may be lower, the glossy emboss highlights it as if it increases.
Do not be afraid to experiment and overlap blind embossed objects with text printed with ink or foil, such as your name or contact details. This will give you an unexpectedly creative look and feel of your business card.
If you don’t have possibility to design your business cards or you require a consultation about your artwork, simply contact our professional team and we will make sure that your embossed business cards will look like nothing else.
Embellishments that make your embossed business cards look exceptional
With letterpress technique, we can deboss (impress) objects, text into paper, and emboss will create a pop out effect on the paper surface. Emboss can be combined with other printing methods to compose spectacular 3D paper transformation. Check out more information about embossed business cards.
Now glossy foil is very popular and some elements will add an extra shine to your business card. Foiling is one of the most expensive printing methods. Mostly we recommend to foil on dark color paper, then glossy elements create a nice contrast with dark background.
Printing with deboss is called ‘letterpress‘, it means that we press objects into the paper and it looks really impressive. It is a medium-expensive printing technique, the price range is between flat, digital printing and foiling. With deboss, we can print only spot colors. Thick cotton stock fits perfectly for letterpress printing.
If we need to print without relief we use silkscreen or digital printing methods. Digital printing has one major advantage if compared with traditional printing processes – digitally possible to print almost any image on a business card: mid tones, colorful flowers or your photo.
Business card with painted edges will look more exceptional. Edges can be painted with all Pantone Uncoated colors. To be edging visible we recommend to choose at least 430 gsm stock for your business cards, of course, thicker cardstock is even better.
Glossy gold, silver or copper gilded edges will look not only exclusively but will add to your card a delicate luxury touch. To make sure the foiled edge is really noticeable, we recommend using thicker an darker stock.
Differently shaped business cards will also stand out from the crowd. Typically, we cut business cards with equipment that can do rectangular shape. But we can use special dies (or sometimes even laser cut), and cut almost any shape you want.
By saying “Duplex” we mean gluing of 2 or more paper sheets. If you need really thick or different backgrounds on opposite sides of your business cards, we will print your business cards on separate sheets of paper and then glue them together. Sometimes we glue even 3 or more layers to get elegant colored cut.
