Thermo, Thermographic or Thermography Printing

Basically thermography printing is where you apply a powder to ink whilst the ink is still wet. This is then heated and cured which gives a raised image in either gloss or matt. Whilst this print process can now be used on most stationery it is most commonly used on Invitations and Business Cards

 

Printed Thermography is a cost effective way to add a raised finish to all or part of a printed product and is fully compatible with laser printers should you wish to use it on letterheads and compliment slips etc.

Thermo printing certainly gives an extra special effect to your printing.

 

Embossing De-Bossing

Embossing and De-bossing use the same principle as die stamping. A female block is produced which can be in one depth or hand engraved to multiple depths. The material is then pushed into the die using a male counterforce. This process can then be printed litho, foiled or as blind embossed where it just raises the image on the paper.

 

Embossing is often used on logos, corporate identities or invitations but it can also be used on most stationery such as letterheads, compliment slips and business cards

 

Embossing is a cost effective way to raise images from the paper either plain or printed and is fully compatible with laser printers. Embossing can also be used in conjunction with other processes such as foiling, thermography or litho.

 

 

Die Stamping

Die Stamping uses a female block which pushes the material into the die using a male counterforce. Large areas of dense solid colour. fine lines and detail together with reversed out areas can be die-stamped by using a ‘screened’ or ‘sable’ die. Die Stamping is particularly useful when multicolour logos or rich colours are required.

 

This process can now be used on most high quality stationery however it is most commonly used on Invitations and Business Cards or Corporate Identities

 

 

Foil Blocking

Foil Blocking uses the letterpress principle where a male block is produced using zinc, magnesium, copper or brass. This block is then heated on press and a metallic or colour foil is burned onto the material.

Foiling is often used on logos, corporate identities or invitations but it can also be used on most stationery such as letterheads, compliment slips and business cards.

Foiling is a cost effective way to add a metallic finish to all or part of a printed product and is fully compatible with laser printers. Foiling and also be used in conjunction with other processes such as embossing, thermography or litho.
