This is a specialised post-print technique of adding real depth to a stamp, or section of a stamp. Skilled craftsmen work with extremely accurate, hand-finished tool dies to press intricate shapes into the stamp paper to create the life-like effects we can see here. At Cartor embossing is particularly intricate because the embossed detail is applied in varying degrees to create a real three dimensional effect.
