James Cropper offers a choice of more than 30 different embossing patterns including textile weaves, leathers, rippling effects and intricate geometrics in grid, spot or linear formations to further enhance our premium papers and boards.
We can also create a tailor made design for those wanting something truly unique.
To give increased clarity and depth to the textured finish, embossing patterns can be applied using a Hot Press heating method.
Whilst a simple clear gloss or matt water based varnish can enhance the appearance of the paper, it also improves resistance to scuffing and finger-marking. A gloss varnish reflects back the light and makes the base colour appear richer and more vivid. A matt varnish gives the surface a satin look with a discreet sheen.
