Can you deboss on top of print?

Unfortunately, we're not able to deboss on top of digital printing, however we can blind deboss (impression with no colour) or deboss with metallic foils or clear gloss foil. Most conventional and digital printing presses suffer from slight sheet-to-sheet mis-registration. In other words, due to slight movement as the paper passes through a press, your design may not be printed in exactly the same position on every sheet of paper. This becomes problematic when trying to deboss on top of printing with accurate registration. For a deboss with printing, we recommend letterpress which applies ink and debosses the stock at the same time. Letterpress printing isn't something we offer at AHC, however, a nice alternative is foil debossing which allows for debossed foil effects pressed in to card stocks like the images below.
