Embossing is the raised character printing that you find on credit
cards for your account number, name, etc. Each letter and number
is individually pressed into the plastic card with alphanumeric
punches and dies.
Tipping is a colored foil that is applied to the embossed area on the front of the card. A plastic card that has the characters tipped with color are more attractive, helping to insure a greater sense of value to your customer. Colors most often used are gold and silver. Other colors are available.
Embossing With Silver Tipping
Embossing With Gold Tipping
