Embossed labels, custom-produced

Make your product labels stand out with embossing

We can make sure your product labels stand out by embossing areas to create depth, light and movement. Advances in embossing technology mean this technique can be used in myriad ways to lure the eye.

Use embossed labels to add emphasis

To create embossed labels, we use die casts to raise parts of a design above the rest. The result makes lettering or imagery stand out, helping to catch the customer’s eye. Embossing can be used to add tactile appeal and highlight particular parts of a label.

You might use embossing to make your logo or brand name stand out on a label, or to give an entire label greater impact.

Advanced technology makes embossing more versatile

Traditional single-level embossing raises parts of a label to the same height, for example by embossing lettering. Technological advances have now made multi-level embossing possible: a label is embossed to different heights to help create texture and interest.

Dies are made from magnesium or copper for single-level embossing, or from brass for multi-level embossing and long single-level print runs.

A skilled craft

Embossing is a time-honoured craft that takes experience and expertise to perfect. To get it right, you need an understanding of how paper responds to pressure and a strong, crisp design that makes the most of this technique.

As you would expect, embossed labels are slightly more expensive due to the skilled work, bespoke die casts and weightier paper stock involved. For this reason, embossing is associated with luxury and quality.
