Embossed Labels

When deciding on creative options for your labels, your choices aren’t as limited as you think. There’s more to designing a label than just colors, text style, and size. If you truly want your labels to stand out, give them some added flair with embossing. Embossing is the process of pressing an image into the label material, which makes the image rise above the rest of the label.

Embossing can give your products a high-quality, sophisticated look. This makes them a great option for a variety of products and applications, including wine labels, specialty food labels, and even health and beauty labels. No matter your industry, custom embossed labels could be the right solution for you, and Blue Label Packaging Company is ready to help you get started.

Enhancing Embossed Labels with Foil Stamping

Among a sea of products, it’s important to find new ways to stand out. One way to do this is by upgrading your label by utilizing techniques such as foil stamping. By combining your embossed labels with foil stamping, you’ll have an elegant label that’s sure to attract attention. 

Typically, foil embossed labels start with a gold or silver metallic background before they are embossed. Once through the embossing process, the label design will have texture, depth, and an overall rich look to it. 

When paired with embossing, custom foil labels can also create a three-dimensional image that stands out from other labels. For brands competing in a high-end market, this is a combination that should be considered.

Embossing vs Debossing


Embossing isn’t only limited to logos or image elements; pattern embossing can give your label a premium patterned or textured feel as well. While embossed labels give your product or packaging a high-end look, the application can still be cost-effective for your embossed label printing project.


Ultimately, debossing has the opposite effect of embossing. Instead of pushing material in an upward motion, a metal die is used to stamp the material into the text, logo or graphic. The resulting effect offers a textured look and feel to the material.
