There are two categories embossing can be separated into:
|The emboss is not aligned to any graphics.|
The emboss is aligned to printed graphics.*
The emboss is aligned to a Spot UV finish.
Debossing can be categorised in the same way: Blind Debossing and Registered Debossing.
Since a blind deboss or emboss will have a much more subtle effect than it does when registered to ink printing, blind embossing is not as suitable for fine details, especially small text.
*Please note: Registered 3D Embossing is no longer available.
