Capabilities

All printing capabilities under one roof to serve you better!

Engraving

Engravaed gold logo
A raised ink printing technique where the ink is transferred from a copper plate to the paper using intense pressure. The fibers of the paper are broken leaving a mark on the back referred to as a bruiseĀ. The ink remains on the surface of the paper giving the printing a tactile finish and is considered the highest level of quality.

 

Offset Lithography

Litho Business Card

The most common form of printing, offset lithography (flat printing) transfers ink to paper using a thin, metal plate. The image area is the same level as the non-image area. Lithography can produce a crisp, clean image at a lower cost.

 

Digital Printing

Without the need for the plates and make-ready of traditional flat printing, digital printing allows for “on demand”, short turn around and cost effective low quantity runs.

 

Thermography

Schilling_1303_Werner_0922
Thermography is a process which applies a plasticized to offset ink while it’s still wet on the paper. Under high heat the powder melts only over the wet ink, resulting in a raised effect. In order to protect the image when exposed to subsequent heat, as in laser printers, the process is cured under a UV light.

 

Letterpress

Letterpress is relief printing. It involves locking movable type into the bed of a press, inking it, and rolling or pressing paper against it to form an impression.

 

Foil Stamping

Schilling_1303_Werner_0977
An adhesive backed foil is stamped onto paper using a metal die. The die is heated which releases the foil under the impact of the press. This can be combined with embossing as well to give the piece a raised image.

 

Blind Embossing

Schilling_1303_Werner_0588
A non-inked process by which a metal die (either a single level, multi-level or sculpted) is used under pressure and heat to impress paper either above its surface (Embossing) or below its surface (Debossing) or both (Multi-Level).

 

Die Cutting

Schilling_1303_Werner_1129
A process by which a metal die cuts paper under pressure to replicate art or various shapes.
