@Mrs.Vowrenewal: What do you mean?

On invitations? On seating cards?

I think embossing looks nice and gives something a little extra richness or pop.

@Mrs.Vowrenewal: What do you mean? I mean I guess there really is no point except for people like it??

I embossed cocktail napkins for our wedding because I thought it would be a cute, easy little touch that our guests (and I) would like. I also embossed a heart stamp on our STD’s. Why? Because I liked it.

I think it just gives texture to the paper.  Like thermography, letterpress, or de-embossing.

It’s to add texture and decoration. Visual interest. An embossing gun works with stamps and embossing ink. There is also the Cuddlebug which uses folders to emboss the paper texturally rather than by using ink. I used a corner punch and embosser combo to do my placecards (sorry it’s a little hard to see in the photo).

If you’re talking about using embossing powder, then it’s way, way, way easier if you use an embossing gun. Especially if you’re going to be doing more than just a few of anything. You can use the stove, but it’s difficult, you burn your fingers, get uneven results and sometimes even set the paper on fire. I highly recommend getting a gun.

If you do buy the gun make sure you go to michaels with a 40% coupon. It’ll be much cheaper! I think they’re normally like $20-30ish dollars. I don’t have pictures on this computer…but if you check my profile I have a link to my blog and I just did a post about embossing my napkins! It’s cheap and easy!
