Blind Embossing

 

 

 

Blind Embossing is a relief method wherein a print is created without the use of any ink (ie: is printed ‘blind’).

Embossing is the process of creating a recessed relief surface using a block made from card and various objects with varying degrees of texture. Using handmade, heavyweight cotton-rag based papers, the surface of this block is then pressed into the paper using a Nipping press to create an embossed surface.

Using imagery, textures, mark-making or text, blind embossing is the perfect way to create a unique and delicate relief print.
