    Hi,
    Foiling: readable negative (image is transfered to the plate where the emulsion is hardend, this will not be affected by the acid and wil be raised on the plate unreadable). The plate is unreadable.
    Embossing: if it's not 3d but only one level (like a frame) readable positive, since the immage has te be etched into the plate, the counterforce is reased. For debossing it's the opposite!
    Uv: redable positive.
    To be sure: ask a diemaker and a screenprinter to be sure, also if the dies are made by CNC and not by etching.
