If you are a professional at embossing glossy business cards, you are bound to be embossed, and that is awesome. The cards you make are special, and I love making them. My job is to create a look, a style, that makes the most impact when I am in front of a client or clientele. It doesn’t matter whether it’s a retail store or a brand that is in their industry.
I work in the printing industry and make about 5,000 cards a day. The process itself creates a lot of art, but it’s the process of creating the cards that truly earns you money. The best part is that the company that owns the company I work for makes sure the process is the best it can be. The company takes pride in the quality of the cards it creates, and I have to work hard to make sure that is the case.
In embossing, the name of the company is actually engraved into the back of the card along with the price, if we use card stock. This means that embossing is the same process as stamping. The embossing process is a bit complicated, but the company that owns embossing has really worked to make sure its the best it can be.
Card stock is a material that is generally used in making cards. Its texture is softer than regular paper that is typically used for making these cards. The company embosses the back of the card with a very fine-grained embossing powder that is then pressed into the card. This makes the card look more like a sticker than a card.
I’ve always wanted to do this, but I’m not sure I can. It seems like embossing a card is a pretty hard process, but a company that makes stickers seems to have done an amazing job on their packaging, so I want to go ahead and try it.
