3D Embossing is a specialty embossing technique exclusive to Jukebox Print.
Regular embossing offers one level of raised texture while 3D embossing can have multiple depths and graduated levels. The sculpted look of a design with multiple heights and depths can only be achieved using a 3D emboss process. Production for 3D embossed cards have a higher cost because they require many more steps and the overall creation is a slower and more detailed process. A 3D emboss business card project starts at $1500 for a minimum quantity and design services for a 3D emboss starts at $1000.
3D embossing is only possible with a “blind” impression. This means, the 3D emboss must be located in an area of the design where no ink will be printed. 3D embossing looks best when the blank paper itself is sculpted and shaped instead of matching to a print. 3D embossing also looks best on thicker, softer paper stocks such as 40pt Cotton or 30pt Onyx.
A 3D emboss is not suitable for many designs so it is ideal to have your artwork ready when requesting a quote. Please view this Example of a file for 3D Embossing and read our Design Considerations for 3D Embossing to learn more.
