Embossing results in a dimensional image on a sheet. The embossing may be single
level or sculptured (referred to as multilevel). Single level dies are least expensive
and may be mechanically prepared. Multilevel dies are made in much the same way
a sculptor executes a work of art and therefore more expensive. Embossing may be
either blind (without printed image), foil (application of foil at the same time
as embossing), or printed (embossing over a previously printed image).
