Paper characterised by surface patterns or marks in relief, created by passing the support between a steel cylinder, with the engraved mark, and a cylinder in soft material. The patterns may vary substantially, and at times may even resemble the surface of other materials (canvas, wood, etc.). Embossing is performed dry, after the paper production process, using an embossing machine. The surface textures may be present only on one side (single embossed paper) or on both sides.
