Debossing

A process for producing depressed or sunken designs on paper or similar substrates. This is done through a stamping process where a metal die is pressed into the substrate, forming a specified shape. This is commonly used as an alternate for embossing in substrates which are too thick for the male/female die combination needed to emboss, such as a book case cover. When done on thinner substrates, such as normal paper, the deboss is essentially a reversed emboss—if you flip the paper over the same design is embossed. However, it is important that your die maker knows if you are going to deboss as it will affect how the die is made.
