Thermography printing, or “raised printing,” is a 3D printed effect that resembles engraving, but is less expensive.
The 3D effect is created when wet ink on an offset printed sheet is run through a machine that coats the entire sheet with powdered resin. The powdered resin sticks to the wet ink and is removed from the unprinted areas. The sheet then goes through a heating unit that melts resin, which upon melting, draws up the ink and raises the ink from the paper.
