Offset printing is a method that uses a metal plate and rubber blanket to set ink upon a form of media. The ink is applied one color at a time where it sticks to specific areas. The printers are either sheet fed or web fed.
Sheet fed is commonly used for shorter run jobs because it is fed a single sheet at a time. Web fed on the other hand is fed by a roll which provides extremely fast production. Offset printing is ideal for magazines, brochures, newspapers, books, and binders.
Offset printing provides a consistent high quality image and is an option Sunrise Packaging offers for vinyl binders.
Silk screening is a technique where the printer uses woven mesh to support an ink-blocking stencil. The stencil has open areas of mesh that transfer ink through the covering.
A roller moves across the stencil forcing the ink through the threads of the woven mesh that are not blocked. This method is also known as screen printing. This form of printing is commonly used on vinyl binders and eco-binders.
Foil stamping is the application of pigment or metallic foil, often gold or silver, to paper where a heated die is stamped onto the foil, making it adhere to the surface leaving the design of the die on the paper. Foil stamping can be combined with embossing to create a more striking 3D image.
Foil stamping machines, also known as hot foil stampers, use heat to transfer metallic foil to a solid surface. Examples of items that are foil stamped include pencils, napkins, matchbooks, photographs and books.
The foil stamp is a permanent process. These machines are popular with wedding businesses, photography studios and other businesses that need to brand or mark products.
Embossing is an artistic technique which creates a pattern on a material such as paper, metal, fabric, leather, or wood. The pattern can be raised or in relief, depending on how it is embossed. Embossing involves the creation of an impression by placing the dies in contact with the stock under high pressure. Embossing will give your packaging a unique look and texture.
Debossing is the reverse of embossing. An image such as a logo, a title, or other design is heat-pressed into the surface of the paper with a heated die, creating depressions rather than raised impressions as in embossing.
There are different debossing techniques. A blind deboss is used with screen-printing or foil stamping. In screen processing the art or design is first printed onto the material and then the outline of the print is debossed using a die exactly registered to the silk screen print. In foil stamping, the foil is transferred to the material using a special die and then the same die is used to deboss the area.
