Embossing - the procedure requires the use of two dies: one that is raised and one that is recessed. The dies fit into each other so that when the paper is pressed between them, the raised die forces the stock into the recessed die and creates the embossed impression This is most often used to emphasise a printed text or images. Blind embossing - raises the image where there is no print applied. This is a stylish, restrained effect.
Debossing - is similar to embossing, but recesses the design rather than raising it. Rather than the paper being raised in specific areas, it is indented. The process involves applying pressure to the front side of a substrate and forcing the material down from the surface.
