Embossing Services

Embossing is a common part of product manufacturing and customization, as it makes your products look attractive and appealing. The finishing touches that are put on products include some form of embossing, forming, or customization in order to make them unique and stand out from the crowd.

Embossing is a process that uses specialized tooling, heat, and pressure to create raised features in your label or graphic overlay. Embossed features can provide a unique look and feel to your product as well as create added functionality such as tactile keys or features. GVP’s custom embossing can also be used to create ADA compliant Braille for labels and signage. Embossing Services Golden Valley MN

Embossing is a process that forms raised features on a material by pressing it between two matching dies. De-bossing is the opposite of embossing–it removes material instead of adding it. Multi-Level and deep draw features can also be formed into your part using a specialized hydro-forming process. Embossed features can be created in a wide range of material thicknesses in both polyester and polycarbonate based films. Both materials are available in several surface finish options including gloss, satin, and matte textured look. Weather-able and scratch resistant hard coat finishes are also available.

There are several styles of embossing to fit your needs:

Pillow Embossing:

The entire key or design feature is raised to a flat, smooth surface.

Rail or Rim Embossing:

The key or design feature is raised on the outside border. Contact us to go over the design requirements for this feature in more detail.


Hydro-forming is a patented process that uses hydraulic pressure to emboss or shape thin film plastic. The one-sided tool combined with the soft diaphragm universal counter die creates less stress on the substrate than traditional match metal embossing tools. Because tooling is one-sided, unique embossing geometries are possible with hydro form that cannot be achieved with traditional tooling. Examples include tactile devices, negative draft angles, dual level and deep draw shapes.

PolyDome Embossing:

A dome-shaped keytop, which provides a tactile response.


ADA compliant signage.

In-Mold Decorating (IMD):

In-mold decoration (IMD) is a process used by original equipment manufacturers (OEM) and product designers to form and decorate plastic products. The IMD process consists of four main steps: printing, molding, forming, and trimming.

3D Formed Labels:

3D Formed Labels are similar to IMD labels, but they have a specialized forming process that allows them to conform to complex curved surfaces without the typical peel back that can happen with a standard label.
