Embossed Business Cards
Your Business Card Should RISE to the Occasion
Embossed business cards are an ideal way for you to bring attention to the message you want to convey. Being forgettable is not an option in today’s competitive business environment. Custom business cards that utilize embossing stand out, and add a dimension of sophistication to your image.
What Exactly is Embossing?
The process known as embossing utilizes two opposite etched metal dies (usually composed of copper, magnesium or brass) and heat. These elements push/raise the graphic or text above the surface of a sheet of paper to create a three-dimensional, eye-popping effect. A reversed image of the design is used to make the embossing die. If the design is indented rather than raised, it is called debossing.
You have probably seen or felt the raised surface of a notary seal; this is embossing. Business cards can be blind embossed, which is simply an imprint without ink or foil applied. Embossing with foil or color on the imprint adds another visually appealing and distinctive element to your business card.

Using Embossed Business Cards
Even in our digital world, business cards are an expected part of networking. Forget to bring them and you’ll be scribbling your name on scraps of paper – and looking pretty unprofessional. Embossing makes standard business cards feel and look different, enhancing your image and increasing the chance that you’ll get a follow up call.
Business cards are most effective when they convey your most important information at a glance. Don’t clutter them up with details, but do include your key information.
Also consider including your photo. People remember faces more easily than names. A photo on your card will help people recall their conversation with you, long after the convention, tradeshow or networking event is over.
The overall look of your business cards should help promote your personal or business brand. Use the same colors as in your logo and other promotional materials. Then use embossing to suggest the qualities that make your business special. Clever use of embossing can show creativity on a designer’s cards. Used for a law firm logo, it indicates an established and respected business. And when combined with foil stamping, embossing makes your name the center of attention.
Embossed business cards also make elegant hang tags for clothing. They give off an air of quality when you tuck them in with internet orders. Use embossing to encourage repeat business by creating an embossed business card coupon that you attach to receipts.
Embossing is an old technology that breathes new life into business cards. Use it to create unique textures that will help people remember you long after that first handshake.
