The cover of this issue of Inspire, gold and black and multilingual, is in celebration of the 10th anniversary of the magazine. The design symbolises the elegance and eye-catching qualities that Inspire aims to provide its readers. The paperboard used is Invercote Creato 300 g/m².
The primary technique, microembossing, is integrated into the die tool and impresses the design on only one side of the paperboard without needing a counter plate, is ideal for creating a finely detailed shimmer effect when combined with foiling that changes depending on how you hold it under the light. In addition, after the microembossing, the cover has also been embossed using the normal technique in a second step, an extra touch that gives added dimension to the design.
