Embossing, debossing and Foil Blocking

 

Blind embossing is designed to provide a raised area that gives a textured finish. For a different effect, debossing gives the reverse finish where the design is pushed into the substrates, both will give you a high class feel and look to your product enabling it to stand out from the crowd.

Foil blocking enhances your image by providing a highly reflective finish available in many different colours and finishes. It can be applied to most substrates.

 


Specalist Inks

Working with specialist inks like Thermochromic, Photochromic and Mirror finish which enables us to provide you with temperature colour changing images,  ‘glow in the dark’ and ‘glitter’ finishes and mirror effect, which really draws attention to your products. Other inks available include 'scratch and sniff' and fluorescent. Fluorescent colours when screen printed provide a vivid depth of colour unmatched by other printing techniques giving an added security layer for high value permits and tickets. This can also give you a further dimension to your Promotion literature. Please discuss your print requirements with us. 

Gluing

We are able to fulfill your gluing requirements by offering either a full and part coverage. We can convert your supplied stock by applying re-moist gum. Used in conjunction with our perforating service this allows for the ability to have sensitive information returned by the recipient by creasing and re-sealing with the addition of moistening the gum area and sticking down. We can also offer a full area gluing and re-moist gumming coverage service which with the addition of release paper provides a self adhesive sheet.  Please ring discuss your exact needs. 


Lamination and Encapsulation

These processes enhance your print and are ideally suited to prolong the life of your printed product. Both laminated and encapsulated stock can be overprinted so for example you may require a signature strip or spot uv varnish.
