Weekly Quiz: Artwork Pressed Lower Than a Paper’s Surface is…?


Answer: Deboss!

The opposite of embossing, debossing sandwiches your paper between a 2-part die to lower an image beneath a sheet’s surface. (Debossing is often referred to as the 3rd dimension in your design.) Raising or lowering type or an image within your design adds texture by creating shadow and depth, lending allure to your brochures, letterheads and business cards.
