Debossing is a printing process, in which a recess image or text is pressed with the help of an un-inked block or die on paper or board.
For best quality debossing, you must always use thick paper, like art paper which is over 250gsm or C1S paper which is over 200gsm. For debossing, texts should be more than 12lb. Moreover, wrapping the printing paper on board, like a hardcover, is always recommended to get the highest quality debossing results. Debossing is ideally used on covers to make a logo or any other special image or text stand out in the eyes. In most cases, debossing is and foil stamping is designed as well as done together.
