Digital Embossing is the new sensation. This fantastic innovation makes print positively three dimensional. From today ‘ordinary printing will simply leave you feeling rather flat. Digital Embossing will make your message infinitely more compelling. It will make your printing no longer just a visual but also a sensual experience. We have prepared a couple of video tutorials showing how to prepare your Digital Embossing Seperation. These can be viewed here.
Digital Embossing can be used to enhance the majority of coated papers and cards and to all laminated products. It is most effective when applied to thicker materials. The process is post press which means it can be equally effective on Litho and Digital Printed work.
Whilst Digital Embossing is applicable to either gloss or matt lamination it is most effective over matt, where the contrast between the laminate and the emboss is striking.
Please note: we always strongly recommend running a trial sheet prior to having a large volume of Digital Embossing. Digital Embossing is an environmentally friendly embellishment. It produces no harmful waste products or dangerous Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) and uses small amounts of power in production.
The preparation for Digital Embossing could not be easier. We just need an additional Black Separation with image in all the areas you would like to have Digital Embossing. Because of the exceptional accuracy of the process (each sheet is registered optically before printing) the most complex shapes can be embossed. It is even possible to include half tones in your design (Tints of Black) which will make the Embossing taper on the finished page. If you would like us to prepare your black separation, or have a particularly complex embossing project which you simply do not have time to prepare yourself, then we would be pleased to help.
Because the process is Digital, there is no lower limit on quantity. We are happy to emboss just one sheet if required.
With Low Lift Emboss the effect is somewhat similar (though there is still much more texture) to the very highest high lift UV varnish. Plus, of course, there are the overwhelming advantages of a pin point accurate register, ability to emboss complex shapes and an environmentally friendly process.
With High Lift Emboss the real creative advantages of Embossing come to the fore. The effectiveness of the embellishment is immediately apparent. The normal reaction is instant approval, no questions, simply ‘to see it is to love it’.
Calculating the cost of Digital embossing is quick and easy. The only things required are:

With PrintPod it won’t cost the earth!
PrintPod have always boasted about our green credentials. 99% of all orders are produced in an ISO14001 accredited factory, using green renewal energy, FSC papers from sustainable forests in Europe and printing with vegetable oil based inks. Our packaging is environmentally friendly and delivery to your doorsteps is by overnight courier which we believe is the most eco friendly means.
In early July the factory completed installation of nearly 700 solar panels, one of the largest rooftop installations in the UK. The installation is designed to deliver 160 kw of energy, almost 50% of the power demand. The panels will even generate energy on bright moonlit nights!
The Carbon Trust reviewed the energy efficiency of the factory and suggested installation of a power perfector. Now with the solar panels the energy costs have been reduced by over 60% which obviously feeds through into our prices, especially with energy costs rising it’s reassuring to know that 50% of the power demand is supplied from the rooftop!
