image into a paper or cardstock from underneath.

being pushed down rather than being raised.

cardstock.

slightly raised from the rest of the material.
 This technique is mainly used on wedding invitations,
business cards, diplomas, etc.
 Process : Adding a special powder to the ink that is to be
printed on the paper. The printed piece is heated which
causes the powder and ink mixture to dry up resulting in
raised effect on the paper.

to support an ink-blicking stencil.
 This attached stencil forms open areas of mesh that lets the
ink to transfer onto the material.
 Process: Roller is moved across the stencil; this pumps the ink
past the threads of the woven mesh in the open areas.
