Processes

4-COLOR PROCESS

4-COLOR PROCESS:
The standard process for full color printing. The design work is separated into 4 pieces of film, each representing one of the 4 colors used in this process (Cyan, Magenta, Yellow and Black.) Every imaginable color is created by the subtle overlapping of these 4 inks when printed.


COLD FOIL PRINTING COLD FOIL PRINTING:
COLD FOIL PRINTING mimics the hot stamping process but utilizes standard printing plates and tooling instead of the specialized tooling previously required.

DIGITAL PRINTING DIGITAL PRINTING:
Digital Printing is a broad term and includes any reproduction technology that receives electronic files and uses spots (or dots) for replication. Ink, toner, inkjet, or any other dye- or pigmented-based transfer system may be used. This covers almost every present system for outputting graphic information to substrates: anything from home inkjet printers to high-powered roll-fed Xeikon presses or high-speed statement printers.

DOMING DOMING:
Doming covered with a thick, transparent, poured polyurethane coating, causing a domed effect. Domed decals offer a unique and distinguished appearance!
 

  EMBOSSING:
Embossing is the creation of a three-dimensional image on paper is known as embossing. Heat and pressures reshapes the surface of the paper to create the image. Single, multi-level, beveled, and sculptured are the styles of embossing. Embossing can be done on plain paper or combined with ink, images, or foil for special effects.

  FINISHING & PACKAGING:
Finishing & Packaging terms used to describe the direction the final product is rolled onto the core (reroll style), the number of labels per roll, and the number of rolls or total labels packed per shipping container.

  HOT STAMPING:
Hot Stampinmg is the process of using a metallic material and heat. The foil is adhered to the substrate (material) using heat. The outcome is brilliant foil, which are available in a variety of colors along with gold and silver.

  FLEXOGRAPHY:
Flexography a system of printing on a rotary press employing water-based ink, used especially for printing on plastic, paper, or cardboard. Flexography, normally abbreviated to flexo, is most commonly used for packaging. A flexo print is achieved by creating a mirrored master of the required image as a 3D relief in a rubber or polymer material. Ink is deposited upon the surface of the printing plate using an anilox roll. The print surface then rotates, contacting the print material which transfers the ink to the material surface.

FOIL STAMPING FOIL STAMPING:
Foil Stamping an image created by covering paper with a thin, flexible sheet of metal or other material. The foil comes in a range of colors. Stamping makes the foil adhere to the paper. Foil stamping can be combined with embossing or debossing as an added design element
.

 

RE-ROLL:
Re-Roll a term to describe the direction a label is printed onto the roll and also the direction the label comes off of the roll.


  SCREEN PRINTING:
Screen Printing a process which produces durable products intended for indoor/outdoor use. Inks are Ultra Violet cured, glossy and create bright, beautiful graphics. UV cured inks are lightfast - they will show little fading for at least three years They are also highly resistant to rain, snow, car wash detergents, etc. Screen printing is done on sheets and can be offered in a variety of sizes, shapes and virtually any number of colors.

 

SPOT COLORS:
Spot Colors a type of printing where any number of individual inks are used to produce colors. In contrast, "process" printing uses only combinations of 4 basic printing colors; cyan, magenta, yellow and black. PMS (Pantone Matching System) colors are generally specified.
