    Understand the Embossed Look You Want to Achieve

    Many customers think that using an embosser will create the same look as having something professionally printed or embossed; this is not the case with a personal embosser. The look produced will be different and knowing how you want to finished product to appear will help you determine which method to go with. The main benefit of purchasing an embosser is that it saves you money – you will have to do some of the work (like embossing each of the envelope flaps by hand) but you can make as many as you want and use the embosser for years to come.

    Determine What You Will Be Embossing

    There are many applications for a specialty embosser and knowing what you will be embossing will help you choose the type of embosser that will work best for you. Commonly embossed items are: standard paper, envelope flaps (lined or unlined), napkins (through all 4 folded layers), light-weight cardstock, and thicker cardstock.

    Communicate Your Embosser Needs

    There are several types of embossers available and each has its benefits and limitations. When ordering make sure to provide information about what your main use will be and find out from the company you are working with what their embossers will and won’t do. This will save you a lot of time and frustration. For instance, a handheld embosser is a good choice if you want something that is smaller, for easier storage, and lightweight, for portability. But a handheld embosser is not ideal for embossing thick cardstock because you won’t be able to exert the pressure needed to make the impression clear. Another example is purchasing a seal to emboss standard 40 - 60lb paper and then embossing napkins with it – the embossing seal is likely to produce small holes or tears in a paper napkin. From a manufacturing perspective the engraving depth on the dies can be adjusted to accommodate different surfaces – a deeper engraving for thicker paper and lighter engraving for thinner materials, such as napkins. In order to get the best embosser for your needs it is important that you are specific with the company you are ordering from – otherwise you will receive the embosser and then find out it doesn’t work for what you want to emboss.

    See What the Embossed Image Will Look Like

    It is good to get an idea of what your embossed image will look like; this presents a unique challenge since black and white text sometimes looks different when it is turned into an embossed image. See if the company you are working with can provide sample of an embosser being used in a wide variety of applications and if they have close up shots of an embossed impression to give you a general idea of how your embossed image will appear. A company can also make you a “proof” so you can see the layout of your embosser information. It is important that you proofread the proof because you are responsible for making sure that the information you provide is correct. Most companies will inform you if you have too many lines of text but seeing a proof will let you double check to make sure everything you provided fits.

    Go with a Embosser Manufacturer - It's Quicker and Cheaper

    When it comes to selecting a company to purchase your personalized embosser from you can choose to work with a specialty shop who resells embossers or work directly with an embosser manufacturer. Going directly to the manufacturer gives you more choices when it comes to type face and layout. Price-wise an embosser manufacturer will save you money because the cost isn’t being marked up by the specialty shop that needs to make their profit on top of the original cost of the embosser. Also, a manufacturer will be able to provide the embosser to you faster because they can send the embosser directly to you and cut out the time spend sending it to the middleman.
