Engraving/Debossing

Embossing is a kind of letterpress embossing. And it is one of the hottest hangtag crafts! Engraving the graphic into a metal plate, and imprinting it on the tag paper. Then, the front side of the paper is concave. While the back side has no marks. And please note that the embossing process is single-sided concave. And it is only suitable for thicker tag paper over 200g.

Embossing

The embossing process is a mold that uses a concave and convex pattern. Under the action of certain pressure and temperature, the pressure-bearing materials (PVC, paper, etc.) are deformed. Thereby it will form a certain pattern. Also, we can have a special textured paper effect with ordinary coated paper. So, it is a Strong decorative, unique style.

Paper types in die cut hang tags

Coated paper

The normal thickness of the coated paper is 250, 300, 350g. And the natural color of it is slightly beige. But because the surface of the paper is smooth and flat. And it has high whiteness, smoothness, and good gloss. So, the printed images and pictures have a certain 3D sense. Then, the coated paper color is full and bright. But the stiffness of the paper is not as good as that of white paper. In order to protect the logo or printing on the surface. Usually, we can cover the surface with matte film, bright film, or varnish. Some customers want 100% recyclable die cut hang tags. Therefore, we do not recommend laminating, just apply varnish directly.

Black card paper

The texture and feel of the black card are somewhat similar to the white card. First, its paper is delicate, firm, and thick, and has good folding resistance. Second, its surface is smooth with good stiffness. Then, the black card itself is black, and the side view is also black. Moreover, the color printed on the black card is silkscreen.

In addition, it is not recommended to print a large area of white on the black card. Because of the black card shading, the particles on the surface will seep out after a large area of white printing. And the white surface looks like mildew. The most suitable processes on black cards are gold & silver hot stamping and UV.
