Hartnack and Co | Portfolio Personalisation | Blind Debossing
A ‘blind deboss’ is when an image gets pushed into the material or the leather without using a coloured foil. You are just left with an impressed image. When done on leather, it leaves a darkened imprint.
Embossing, Debossing?? What’s the difference? Well, embossing is when an image has been pushed up from the surface, so when you rub your finger across it you can feel the raised image. Debossing (which we do offer) is when an image has been pushed down into the surface - just remember ‘D’ for down. Effectively we don't offering embossing, we only deboss.
All that said the word ‘embossing’ has pretty much become the catch-all generic word for both.
