In-Line Embossing/Debossing Dies

Reduce the number of passes from two to one and save valuable press set-up time

Our brass engraved in-line embossing/debossing dies are the perfect choice when die cutting and embossing or debossing in the same pass. Typically, this process is operated “cold” (without heat) and can be used on virtually any die cutting sheet fed press.

Universal Engraving in-line brass dies are specially designed for this time-saving process. Combining the engraved embossing/debossing die within the die cutting board saves valuable set-up time and a press pass. They are precision-engineered for tight tolerances and to perform the optimum debossing and embossing effects.

Our special in-line embossing/debossing pre-cast counters are made with a proprietary process that ensures a perfect fit.

The Benefits of Using In-line Embossing and Debossing Dies

Embossing and debossing are pressing techniques that have their own merits.


  • Embossing produces a 3D design that leaps out from the substrate’s surface
  • Embossing can be used to bring attention to the focal point of a design
  • Embossing creates textural interest as well as visual, appealing to the senses of customers and conveying a high-quality feel


  • Debossing produces a 3D design that sinks into the substrate’s surface, creating depth and dimension
  • Debossing offers a more subtle and understated effect than embossing, with the same textural appeal and luxury
  • Debossed designs sit lower than the substrate’s surface area. When used on packaging, this provides protection for the design against wear, scuffs, scratches and dings during transit or while on the shelf.
