This is because it offers the option of creating very striking and creative works, since it allows you to present very attractive designs to the eye. For this reason, companies often use it for corporate stationery, merchandising, packaging, personalized cards and for invitations to events.



    The embossing process consists of producing a relief on the paper by the effect of pressure. It is exposed to heat and pressure to produce indentations, reliefs, and other textures. Hot metals, specially embossed rollers, or a rigid utensil are used to mark a substrate, be it metal, leather, or paper.
