Engraving - For centuries, engraving's unique embossed appearance and feel has been considered the process of choice for conveying the highest level of professionalism and good taste. Engraving means the ink is actually stamped with a metal plate or die onto the paper. The raised area is created from the paper molding to the shape of the image and the ink build up. Engraving has the legendary ability to reproduce fine lines and rich opaque colors. These characteristics have earned it the reputation of the best and most impressive process.

Foil Stamping - This specialty process applies a smooth foil or pigment coating to paper using a die, heat and pressure. These dynamic images can be in metallic, dull, colored or holographic foils. These images can also be further enhanced by embossing the foil to give a three dimensional look.

Embossing or Debossing - This is a process using a metal die and pressure to mold and reshape paper into a three dimensional shape creating an elegant, understated, yet distinctive impression. This process can also be applied in conjunction with engraving, printing and foil processes to further enhance them.
