Registered Embossing

Registered embossing places a blind embossed image with another element created using ink, foil or another embossed image to create a unique 3D design.

  • Uses two designs in alignment
  • Creates depth and texture
  • Ideal for folding carton and paper packaging


Registered embossing places an embossed design in alignment with another element such as foil stamping, printing and another embossed image to create unique and eye catching, 3D designs. Registered embossing has the capability of simulating textures through its layering of 3D designs. Ideal for creating the appearance of wood or stippled concrete, registered embossing adds depth and texture to folding carton and paper packaging designs.
