Sheet Metal Embossing (EMB) and Debossing (DBM) are the processes of creating either raised or recessed relief images and designs in paper and other materials. An embossed pattern is raised against the background, while a debossed pattern is sunken into the surface of the material (but might protrude somewhat on the reverse, back side).

Common Properties

  • Metal embossing is easy, fun, and a great technique for mixed and creative media art; embossed pieces can be used on tin boxes, handmade books, a collage and more.
  • The ability to form ductile metals.
  • Use in medium to high production runs
  • The ability to maintain the same metal thickness before and after embossing.
  • The ability to produce unlimited patterns, depending on the roll dies.
  • The ability to reproduce the product with no variation.
