One of the differences is the disposal of the cover; one is called embossing, which is process of creating raised relief images and designs in paper. An embossed pattern is raised against the background. It often used in combination with foil stamping, embossing alters the surface of paper stock by providing a three dimensional or raised effect on selected areas. Generally, embossing is the process most often employed to attract attention or convey a high quality textural contrast in relation to the surrounding area of the paper stock.
