As well as printing solid colours, we can also blind deboss, or print without ink. Please note that blind deboss is considered an ink colour for pricing purposes. When considering designing for blind debossing, keep in mind that the lack of ink means that there is less contrast – therefore a deeper impression is required in order to see the illustration or read the text.
Consider carefully the areas of your design to be blind letterpressed – we don’t recommend it for any important text details of a design as it can be quite difficult to read without the definition that coloured ink provides – especially on darker stocks. We get the best impression on softer stocks like cotton in lighter shades, as the shadows help lend to its legibility.
Blind deboss works best on 500gsm + stocks (double thick), as it allows for a deeper impression.
