What are Embossed Labels?

Embossing is the process of shaping malleable material using custom made dies, heat, and pressure to create a button or key that is raised upon the material. The raised part of the label is three-dimensional giving the look of the overlay a functional and creative design. Often, companies will use embossed labels (or embossed overlays) for decorative purposes, Braille ADA compliant requirements or to add a functional, actuating button for operating a piece of equipment. These embossed overlays or keypads can be found in many industries, from your household appliances, computers, electronics, and medical equipment. Using heat and pressure, DG’s state of the art machines can emboss the button or key shape of your choice in a number of different materials.
