    Anyone do it?

    Can anyone recommend me someone?

    How much more costly is it?

    Are there massive limitations?

    I've got some embossed cards.
    as a rule of thumb a die will have to be made and for Business cards think about another £400 on top of the print price. It's expensive and the design has got be worth it!

    Perhaps you could suggest a spot UV as a cheaper option to bring something extra to the cards?

    I've been working on an ambigram for it, he was so excited at the thought of embossing. I think a black card with spot gloss might be a cool way of going about this instead.

    you could use the spot gloss to make the illusion of a bevels reflective side :)

    I've suggested spot gloss, so we will see.

    Thanks for the link to that site Nik, it could win awards for dubious design decisions!

    The cost of an embossing die is £35. The extra cost for embossing is nowhere near £400 - unless
    it's a very large amount.

    Kind regards - David

    Call Ian,

    A lot cheaper than you'd think - and incredible quality.

    You can get embossing stamps I think. I came across an old one the other day, not too sure on their pricing though. Plus you'll have to do each one individually!
