In the regular printing of mediums with depth like relief and intaglio, plates are inked up and pressed against a paper surface to leave an imprint. In contrast, Embossing and Debossing involve printing without ink, using the plate and press to create a physical impression on paper. Both processes are similar techniques that create a different result. Embossing produces a raised impression onto paper (or other surface) while Debossing does the opposite, causing a depressed impression in the paper.
Students may, but are not required to, bring existing plates such as relief and deep etched intaglio plates for embossment or collagraph and carborundum plates for debossment. In the class we will construct simple printable plates: relief and intaglio, cardboard, fabrics and other materials.
