Embossing, Debossing & Foiling
You’re almost there, the menu cover design has been chosen, the materials and colours confirmed…but the finishing - do you emboss, deboss or foil your logo?
The terminology itself can be confusing, especially as different industries use the terms in slightly different ways.
So let’s break it down for you!
Embossing - This creates an indent in the actual leather, Bookbinders linen, card or paper. It can be in any colour, metallics are hot favourites or “Blind” (without foil or colour).
Debossing - This is exactly the same as embossing but predominantly used as the key term in the print industry.
Foiling - This in effect is an overlay and the foil chosen sits on top of the substrate.
So which one is right for your project? In the main, an embossed finish offers a more elegant visual and has the added benefit of durability. Foiling, has a mass produced feel and tends to lose image clarity through cleaning rather quickly.
For us, embossing your Wine List Holder or A La Carte Menu Cover is the way to go - just take a look…http://www.pembertonandmilner.com/leather-wine-list-holders/4542268467
