21 Ultra Classy Embossed Business Cards

Embossed business cards can be very classy and have the natural ability to stand out because they do not only look different but also feel different. In designing your card, you can, for example, emboss your logo or any other shape you can think of.  To further customize your cards, you can also opt to have blind emboss, where the image is simply raised; or emboss with ink, where the raised area is coat with color. On top of that, there is also the so-called foil embossing, where image is coated with a shiny metallic coat.

Not familiar with embossed cards and how embossing is done? Well, in embossing, a custom die with a counter die is used to push the paper (or any other stock you want to use for your business card)  up from the back adding something like a 3D effect. In short, the image or letters are raised on one side of the custom die while the other side of the die has the image indented. So when the paper passes between these two dies, it molds into the shape.

Now, how does embossing differs from letterpress? People often interchange these terms. Truth is,embossing and letterpress are complete opposites. In letterpress, you are actually pressing images into the paper while in embossing, you are pressing images out of the paper.

  1. Some nice examples listed. Embossed business cards do look really nice, and give a bit of class to an otherwise pretty plain business card.

  2. i like most of the embossed cards. i will definitely like to get a quote for printing of about 4000 business cards.
