The printing industry went through a lot of changes mainly due to the development of technology and techniques, enabling the possibility to create printing layouts that can be easily regarded as artcraft.
The same principle appplies to the equipment used whether it is for pre-press, printing, or finishing printing equipment. Among the printing processes, embossing deservers special attention. Embossing is in fact, creating of an impression or a design, lettering, decoration or pattern on different sufaces, such as: paper, or even cloth, leather or metal to make a relief.
The main difference between embossing and regular printing is that plates are pressed on the surface to leave an imprint, but in embossing, the surface is raised by pressing adding in this way a new dimension to the layout.
