i'm a fan of simplicity.
why make something more complicated than necessary?
in the world of letterpress printing, blind debossing kinda takes the cake for simple but stunning. it's like a regular letterpress job with no ink. so you get all that yummy texture but no color added.
have a peek:

|via pink orchid press|
|via aloha letterpress|
|via dolce press|
|via liquorice press|
|via letterpress junkie|
|via trip print press|
|via moontree letterpress|
all of the above examples are white on white. i like that look. but blind debossing can also be used on color. and it looks pretty awesome.
