PRINTING SYSTEMS

The main systems are characterised and identified by their particular printing plates.

Debossing

The process of creating recessed relief images and designs in paper and other materials. A debossed pattern is sunken into the surface of the material.

Blind Spot UV Coating

When the UV coating is applied directly to the paper without a printed color underneath.

Embossing

The processes of creating raised relief images and designs in paper and other materials.

Spot UV Coating  

One of the most popular printing techniques. Environmentally friendly. Fast drying speed.

Hot Foil Stamping

The process of using heat and pressure to apply metallic foil or holograms to materials such as light papers, carton board, laminated board, plastics and corrugated board.

Die-Cut

The process of using a die to shear webs of low-strength materials, such as rubber, fiber, foil, cloth, paper, corrugated fiberboard, paperboard, plastics, pressure-sensitive adhesive tapes, foam and sheet metal.

Lithography

It is an old process used today only for printing artwork. The image is directly transferred from the plate to the paper.

Screen Printing

The process where ink is transferred through a surface.

Tampography

The process allows printing on objects with various forms and with rigid surfaces and not completely flat.

Offset Printing

The impression is made indirectly with a cylinder cover with soft rubber to receive and impress the image from the plate onto the paper.

Flexography

This process uses a relief plate made of a soft material allowing direct impression on a wide range of paper.
