To emboss means to press or stamp designs on a surface, causing the design to be raised in comparison to the rest of the material. Embossed custom product labels refer to a specific technique used in label design that allows for lettering, patterns, decorations, and specific designs. The entire label or only small part may be chosen to be embossed. Labels made with embossing have a certain pop to them while being enhanced by the elegance it provides. The embossed design is made by using color dyes that are placed onto the labels by using pressure from the printing press. The mold of the design is made beforehand and used only for that specific label production. The finished embossed custom product labels have implemented color depth, customized texture, and a quality shine.

Blind: This type of embossing does not involve any color. The raised surface is the only evidence of embossing on the label.
Combination: This is embossing and foil printing on one label. Hot or Cold foil printing gives a nice shine to labels and embossing only enhances its quality look.
Pastel: This is mixing two tones to get the desired effect similar to an antiqued look. Different options include pearl finish, clear finish, and countless others.
Glaze: This embossing involves adding heat to create a shiny appearance to the label.
Scorch: This embossing also involves heat but to provide a different effect than glazing. A fiery scorched look is the desired effect of this kind of embossing.
