Different embossing forms are used depending on the material and embossing process. In addition to class embossing stamps there are also embossing cylinders for the seamless integration into the flexo and gravure process, and which produce embossing structures on a rotary basis. Embossing cylinders can be implemented as a sleeve, full body or embossing plate. Depending on the material and are of use, embossing forms are manufactured via milling, laser etching, laser engraving or the polymer process.
