These business cards incorporate foil blocking, blind debossing and litho printing. What are these print process? …and how could they benefit the output of my creative work?…I thought you would never ask!

Lets have a look

Print Process: Foil Blocking

Foil blocking is a finishing technique that applies a coloured foil to a substrate by using heat. This particular print process can transform conventionally printed materials and make them shine!

Print process: Blind de-debossing

Blind embossing can either be raised (the subject stands out) or in this instance, lowered (the subject is sunk in).  Blind embossing allows for a graphic deformation that produces striking effects through both sight and feel.

Print process: Litho

Litho can print on a wide variety of paper with different surfaces and thicknesses. The printing process gives a smooth print with no serrated edges.
