Looking for that old school look for your business cards?
Before CMYK became a big thing, raised printing was in vogue. Usually 1 colour, maybe 2.
Our designers will create your artwork ready for raised printing. Just email your logo.
Raised printing was originally designed to simulate embossed engraving at a lower cost.
The process is carried out with a ‘thermo’ unit attached to the end of the printing press where freshly printed inks are dusted with a clear compound.
As the excess powder on the non printed areas is removed by vacuum, the sheet passes under a heater set at 480 – 700 degrees Celsius. This fuses the ink and powder compound together. The sheet is immediately moved into a cooling section where the raising is stopped.
The finished product looks high end and distinctive to the eye and touch.
It’s a perfect choice for business cards, swing tags, certificates, menus and invitations.
Choose from the many Pantone Ink colour options available.
