Craft Introduction

What is embossing?

The embossing, a type of carving, refers to the craft that carve the design on a object surface to let the carved part above the original surface. This craft can be adapted to various materials including PVC, metal, wood, paper, and so on.

Operation Details

On PVC card – print the embossed design on it with the flatbed UV printer.

On metal card – corrode the rest part from the design with chemical liquid to form the embossed effect; laser engrave the rest part from the design to make the design part above the card surface; or directly print the embossed part on it with the flatbed UV printer.

Wood card – laser engrave the design part to realize this effect; or print the design on it with the flatbed UV printer to achieve that effect.  

Paper card – press the design part from the back side direction to to front side direction with the machine to let the embossed effect formed on the front side; or use the flatbed UV printer to form this effect.  

Crafts Effect
