custom foil and embossCustom Foil and Emboss

Foil, emboss and deboss techniques are specialty printing methods that we produce on our letterpress. The letterpress leaves an impression on the surface of the paper from a raised metal engraving. This printing process is distinctive, classy and can make any design even more impressive.

Foil and emboss products include business cards, coasters, pocket folders, stationery, invitations, report covers and much more.

Minimum order is 100 units.

Foil Stamping

With foil stamping, the foil is applied to the surface of the paper with pressure and heat. Your design will be slightly debossed (indented) in the paper from a custom metal stamping engraving and the pressure applied. A wide range of paper stocks can be used including uncoated, textured, natural and vellum in various thicknesses. Foil options include metallic and matte colors, antique patterns, multi-colour, holographic, and brushed effects. Foil is an elegant option that will help make your design stand out and leave a lasting impression. Contact us for all the foil options.


Embossing leaves a raised impression of your artwork (design) on the paper which has already been printed or left blank (called blind embossing). Embossing is a perfect way to highlight your logo or a specific part of your design. A custom metal engraving and counter engraving will be made for this process.


Debossing leaves an indentation of your artwork (design) in the paper from a custom metal stamping engraving. The opposite effect of embossing. Blind debossing is achieved with no ink or foil, showing off your design in a subtle, yet eye-catching way.
