12 of the Most Attractive Embossed Business Cards

Embossed Business Cards Design Ideas

Embossing on business cards adds a subtle and premium design element. Since you are not adding printed graphics or text, it keeps the design of the business card clutter free.

The 2 Types of Embossing

Embossing is when you raise the card to create text or graphics, and there are 2 types of embossed business cards:

  • Blind embossing is when you raise the card and leave it as it is (you don’t add any ink or color to the embossed area). Most of the business cards shown below are blind embossed.
  • Foil embossing is when you add a special foil over the custom embossed area to give it a different color. You can get special metallic foils like gold and silver.

Going DIY

Whenever you add an element to your business card, whether that be printing double sided or having your card embossed, you raise the costs of having it made.

A simple way of adding embossed graphics or text to your business card design is to have a custom hand embosser made, then you’ll be able to add your own embossing to your cards. Check out my DIY post (6 Super Easy Ways to Create Handmade DIY Business Cards) to see how it’s done.
