What does embosser orientation mean?
It means the side from which the embosser will make an impression on the page. There are four options: top, bottom, left and right.
What are you hoping to emboss?
If you are planning to use your embosser on envelope flaps and place cards or business cards, you'll need a ‘bottom’ orientation. For headed paper and embossed details at the top of stationery, a ‘top’ orientation is the best option. The ‘right’ orientation is suitable for library stamps which can be used towards the right side of book pages. Finally, the ‘left’ orientation is great for embossed detail along the left side of the page.
As shown here, you'll need a 'bottom' orientation for envelope flaps.
Place cards or business cards also require a 'bottom' orientation.
For books, a 'right' embosser orientation is the best choice.
Still unsure of which orientation to choose?
A 'bottom' orientation is the most popular choice. If you are unsure of which orientation to choose, ‘bottom’ is a great place to start.
