Go From Ordinary to Game-Changing
Both Embossing and Debossing are great custom techniques that leave an unforgettable impression
An Embossed image or logo has a 3-D appearance. The image is raised and appears to be coming out of the garment.
Debossing: This is the technique when the logo is pressed into the fabric. This method is often not suitable for use with puff.
Embossing and Debossing use heat and custom metal molds to imprint a logo onto a garment. This creates a permanent raised (Embossing) or recessed (Debossing) design, with clean, bold lines. The molds can be made in various sizes (X-Small, Small, Medium, Large, X-Large, and Jumbo). The cost of the mold is determined by the desired size of the mold and the intracity of the logo design.
Embossing and Debossing can be preformed on a wide variety of fabrics
- Polar fleece
- Soft Shell
Cost & Turnaround Times

Puff or No Puff?
Polyester, leather, and pleather fabrics can be done with or without puff. The advantage of not using puff is that there is no backing material behind the design. This is often preferred on high-end polyester garments. The image will not have the same contrast relief as images done with puff.
Puff is a foam backing similar to embroidery pellon. Puff gives a debossed logo a raised appearance and a contrast prominence. Cotton, fleece, and polar fleece fabrics require puff.
Without puff the image on these fabrics will gradually relax and fade away. Like embroidery pellon, the excess puff backing is trimmed close to the design but will remain with the garment.
