Couldn't be more pleased with how my client's cards turned out! The foil stamping is crisp, clean and meticulous. The card stock is rich and the thickness really elevates the design. My client wanted a "luxury look" and these cards exceeded our expectations!

The gold foil cards are beautiful! They look so luxurious and are exactly what I was looking for. They have a soft suede-like touch that feels nicer than the average matte business card which is a bonus! I’m in love! Thank you!

What the heck is Embossing?

Embossed business cards and debossed cards involve 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.

Embossing is typically applied to any important aspects of your design such as text and logos.
