In addition to the different types of finishes available at Virtual Packaging, we can also put the final touches on your product’s packaging with embossing, debossing, and lifted inks.
Embossed Packaging Prototypes
From fancy headphones to the latest tablet, a lot of products use a packaging technique known as embossing. With an embossed packaging, a logo, message, or other piece of artwork protrudes from the surface. Common applications include greeting cards, leather goods, credit cards, and promotional marketing materials. Whether you want the raised area to be left as is (known as a blind emboss) or embellished with ink or foil stamping, we’ll create a stunning embossed packaging mockup that will leave a lasting impression.
Debossed Packaging Prototypes
Essentially the opposite of embossing, debossing can help your product packaging make a bold statement. The metal die is still stamped on your material, but this time on the front, so you’ll end up with an imprint or indented image. Depending on how elaborate or simple you want your debossed packaging to be, you can incorporate foil stamping, ink, or leave the impression as is (known as a blind deboss). From wedding invitations to business cards and everything in between, we can completely customize your prints for any occasion.
Lifted Ink Packaging Prototypes
Similar to embossing, raised ink printing creates a raised area on the surface, but it is printed instead of stamped. While the ink is still wet, a powder is sprinkled over the desired area and then heated in order to create the raised part that will stand out. Raised ink printing is a great way to make certain aspects of your product or message literally pop at your audience. A cost-effective solution, raised ink adds texture and shine, and it produces more vibrant colors as well. Although the paper itself is not raised like it is in embossing, lifted ink packaging will still give you an extremely dynamic look. Additionally, since custom plates are not made, this type of embellishment can be turned lightning fast on all of our quick turn options!
