A counter and a metal plate are used to create these excellent designs. Embossing develops an impression that is raised on the paper sheet, as well as the debossing can form a depression in the cardboard. This mechanical procedure is used to assist the design in looking great. The main purpose of the process is to keep the design prominent and applying debossing can signify a label of the brand.

Foil printing generally desires to have vector images for design. This type of finishing can take the design to a new level of Excellency and exquisiteness.

The fine coating is applied as a thin layer, the result is highly pigmented, and the surface becomes reflective. This tends to be a great idea for highlighting logos and labels for the product. Such a good quality technique can be used to print brochures and business cards as well.
4. Thermography an Innovative Technique
It is a different technique but results in the relatively same product as a beautiful surface. Actually, there is a powder that is heated together with the color and that results in a raised surface on the box. It looks great when the label of the brand is printed in this way. The grainy rough title is a good idea for people who like sensory feel on their packaging boxes.
