3D Emboss Business Cards: The Pinnacle of Luxury
Many would agree that the beauty of a business card is its tangibility. In a world that is fast moving towards digital interactions, the tactile experience of paper is becoming treasured, and it’s not an overstatement to say that the ultimate sensory indulgence is 3D Emboss business cards. The innovative and complex process of 3D embossing is a lavish addition to the already unique art of embossing, imparting a stunning relief effect to specific elements of your design to extraordinary heights rarely seen in traditional embossing, all while preserving incredibly fine detail.
Finding the Best Paper for 3D Embossing
The intricate opulence of 3D embossing can be produced only on the best cotton papers from around the world. Fine cotton paper withstands the intense pressure used to raise the surface of the paper and create a beautiful three-dimensional effect, yet still shows a delicate texture.
Adding Printing Accents
The excitement needn’t stop at the 3D embossing, as this process can be used in combination with other printing methods like letterpress and foiling. Nothing beats the timeless elegance of letterpress paired with the luxury of 3D embossing!
3D Embossing Is Pure Craftsmanship
At Jukebox we take pride in our craftmanship, and 3D embossing is our most prized example of fine handcrafting. Each card is individually produced and painstakingly inspected upon completion of printing to ensure quality down to the smallest detail.
Sophisticated Patterns Come to Life
This incredibly soft “pillow” effect can be achieved only with 3D embossing and fine cotton paper. Both unique and distinguished, this elegant feature is perfect for those who want to stand out and leave a memorable impression when they hand out their business card.
A Special Project Deserves Specialised Attention
Not exclusive to just business cards, a 3D Emboss finish can be applied to many projects that require a sophisticated touch, such as wedding invitations, personal stationery, and even wine labels.
As this is a highly specialised product, it is available only through our luxury custom quotes service. Contact our luxury print specialist today for a one-on-one consultation about producing your next 3D Emboss project.

Most Popular Questions
3D Embossing is a specialty embossing technique exclusive to Jukebox Print.
Regular embossing offers one level of raised texture while 3D embossing can have multiple depths and graduated levels. The sculpted look of a design with multiple heights and depths can only be achieved using a 3D emboss process. Production for 3D embossed cards have a higher cost because they require many more steps and the overall creation is a slower and more detailed process. A 3D emboss business card project starts at $1500 for a minimum quantity and design services for a 3D emboss starts at $1000.
3D embossing is only possible with a “blind” impression. This means, the 3D emboss must be located in an area of the design where no ink will be printed. 3D embossing looks best when the blank paper itself is sculpted and shaped instead of matching to a print. 3D embossing also looks best on thicker, softer paper stocks such as 40pt Cotton or 30pt Onyx.
A 3D emboss is not suitable for many designs so it is ideal to have your artwork ready when requesting a quote. Please view this Example of a file for 3D Embossing and read our Design Considerations for 3D Embossing to learn more.

- Bleed Area
- Trim Area
- Safe Area
Bleed Area refers to images that extend to the very edges of a design. To prevent an unwanted white border from showing at the edge of your design, or for the design to appear slightly off-center, be sure to extend any background colors or design elements all the way to the edge of bleed (.125” past the trim on all four sides).
Trim Area refers to the amount of the image that will appear on your finished product. These areas will also be marked with ‘cut lines’ on your proof and are where we aim to cut your card.
Safety Area in most cases refers to 1/8 of an inch inside of the Trim Area. For thicker papers 20pt and up or wooden papers the Safety Area increases ¼ of an inch inside the Trim Area. we strongly recommend you keep important aspects of your design such as text and logos well inside of the Safety Area, otherwise, they may be cut off.
