Description

Would you like to know about embossing, freestyle?

Please join us on Saturday afternoon and learn how to add some pzazz to your paperwork with an embossed pattern, without the need to spend lots of your Christmas money on embossing tools!

Our talented and resourceful Collectivist Trevor Watson will demonstrate the art of embossing using the kind of pen you probably already have around the house.  You can also browse his artwork which is currently part of our January promotion, offering a 20 per cent reduction on the previous price.

Embossing refers to the creation of an impression of some kind of design, decoration, lettering or pattern on another surface like paper, cloth, metal and even leather, to make a relief. In regular printing or an engraving, plates are pressed against the surface to leave an imprint. In embossing however, the pressing raises the surfaces adding a new dimension to the object.

It is an elegant process that changes the nature of the material that has been embossed. More often than not it elevates the standard and quality of the product. A notary’s embossed seal can give much weight to a regular piece of paper. Similarly, an embossed wedding card immediately changes the entire meaning conveyed by the invitation. The recipient is informed not only about the wedding but also that it is going to be a high profile wedding and an elegant ceremony.

Embossing thus makes things more beautiful than they originally are. The simplest of objects can become pieces of art worthy of the highest praise by using a technique as easy as embossing. Of course, how good an embossed object looks depends entirely on its quality. Poor quality can completely kill the appeal of an object. However, good quality can make an object positively breathtaking.
