Embossed Business Cards

Elevate your business cards with an embossed effect!

Embossing is the process of pushing the card out from behind your logo, a graphic or even a non printed area to create a more unique effect.

Print Pricing Table:

Our pricing table displays our most popular embossing option which is printed on a 350gsm smooth white board, matte laminated with full colour printing on both sides. These cards will appear debossed on the back where the card is pushed up from behind to protrude outward. Standard size is 90x53mm.


Other embossing options are available using a new technique of concealing the debossing on the reverse therefore increasing visible printing space on the back, 1000 cards for this option is $235. For more information, please contact us.
