Embossing, which is a little like printing, but without the ink, makes stationery or napkins special. Nothing says, “style, class and tradition” more than an embossed monogram or name on a piece of stationery.
That’s why embossed items make memorable and heart-felt gifts.
In this process, paper is squeezed between two molds, or dies, to create a raised impression on the paper.
How can you tell high-quality embossing from poor-quality embossing?
- Look at the front of the paper. The edges should be crisp. This crisp quality is harder to achieve with thicker paper (but, of course, we’ve got that figured out.)
- Now, look at the back of the paper. You should see a deep texture change in the embossed area. The paper should have been squeezed up and into the embossed pattern or lettering. If there’s just a shallow impression, then the embossing is inferior.
Fine Printing Since 1978
GiftsIn24 and its parent company, Embossed Graphics, have been embossing stationery since 1978. Needless to say, we have perfected our technique over the last 36 years. In fact, we create the highest quality embossed personalized stationery out there.
One other thing you should know about our process, according to Richard Pauling, owner of GiftsIn24: We take the time to get the embossing done right. “Our operators have no quota to perform each day,” says Pauling. “They spend as much time as they need to on an order, even on the most demanding embossing projects.”
So, if you want to send a gift that says “wow” to someone special, consider these five embossed products, recommended by Richard. Pride and craftsmanship go into every product:
