Die cutting

Die cutting is the process that cuts out non-square shapes from cards using a die cutter. A die cutter is a wooden block which has blades bent to the required design housed in the surface of the wood.

Embossing / Debossing

A process of creating a three-dimensional image or design in card using a metal die stamp. In layman's terms embossing pushes up the image in the board so that it is raised from the surface and can be felt to the touch. Debossing does the opposite and pushes down the image.

Foiling

Want to make your cards shine out from the crowd, then we can also foil block them. A metal die is stamped on to the foil, making it adhere to the surface of the card. Foils are available in a variety of finishes, including metallic, gloss, matt and satin. Along with standard gold and silver, you can choose from many other colours.

Flittering

The Imaging Centre can now offer flittering (glittering) to the list of high quality finishes for your greeting cards, to add that bit of magic sparkle.
