Printing Processes

Here is a brief explanation of some of the print processes we are able to use to print perfect labels in any volume

Digital Print

Is professional printing where small-run jobs from desktop publishing and other digital sources are printed using large format and/or high volume laser or inkjet printers.
Digital printing is more expensive than more traditional printing methods, but its
offset by No print plate charges.  It allows for an on-demand print short turnaround
lead time, and more versatile for modifications for images/text.

Letterpress Printing

Is the original print process, inking type onto a raised surface, impressed onto the paper.

Flexographic Printing

Is the major process use dto print packaging materials,
i.e. Folding cartons, Papersacks, Plastic bags, Milk/beverage cartons,
Adhesive tapes, Envelopes, Labels, Newspapers and more…….

Lithographic Printing

Is well suited for printing both text and illustrations in short to medium length runs
of up to 1,000,000 impressions.
i.e.  Newspapers, Books, Business forms, Legal documents.

Silk-screening/Screen printing

Is arguably the most versatile of all printing processes.

i.e.  Using Paper, Paperboard, Plastics, Glass, Metals, Fabrics, Labels, Decals, Signage
Electronic circuit boards.

The advantage of the SP over other print processes is that the press can print on the
substrates of any Shape, Thickness, Size.

Hot Foil Printing

This releases pigment from foil and transfers image onto the substrate with use of a block using heat.
i.e.  Labels, Napkins, Pencils etc…….

UV Varnishing  (Ultra violet)

This protects the substrate from harmful effects.  i.e. Sunlight resistant.
UV Varnish can be applied to ink printed paper, and stops day/sunlight discolouring
your label/s.
