Join Claudia McCue for an in-depth discussion in this video What you should know before watching this course, part of Print Production: Embossing, Foil Stamping, and Die Cutting.
During this course, I'll be showing you some techniques for creating artwork, for embossing and die cutting, using Illustrator and InDesign. So to make the most of those exercises, you should already be reasonably comfortable in those programs. Certainly, you'll find lots of great essential training courses here on lynda.com, to help you enhance your skills in those applications. And in addition, if you'd like to know more about print production in general, you might enjoy my print production fundamentals course and the print production essentials, spot colors and varnish course
