Embossing - adding raised designs and images into material - has been around for years. However, it tends to be the finish that some label printers shy away from, due to the poor quality of the substrate and the lack of quality machinery and skills.
The UK has now got some of the best embossing manufacturers in the world and many of them are beginning to find their feet in the label industry. This, in conjunction with amazing machinery and a willingness on the part of label printers to experiment and invest in skills development, now means that embossing can create truly unique characteristics. With a bit of experimentation and trust from our clients, we've been able to create some almost leather look labels on paper.
