Hot foil stamping
Is the simple application of metallic or pigmented foil on to a solid surface by application of a heated die onto foil, making it permanently adhere to the surface below leaving the design of the die. It looks fantastic looking on papers and card but works equally well on vinyl over board and Polypropylene presentation products. It’s a finish that exudes quality. The foil range of colours and finishes is extensive, using gold and silvers for classic quality or more contemporary and subtle options in clears, pearlescent and pigmented foils.
Screen print is an excellent printing process to transfer Pantone colours onto materials, and we use it across the entire presentation and point of sale range. It is an age-old printing technique whereby a mesh is used to transfer Pantone based coloured ink onto a substrate, except in areas made impermeable to the ink by a blocking stencil. A bold, visual and consistent approach that is often key to our clients’ connecting with their customers/users.
Full Colour Print
CMYK provides the full colour spectrum with detail; graduation, shades, hues and tones. Both digital and lithographic full colour print process is usable across the materials we use paper, vinyl, Polypropylene and card. For those who need reminding: ‘Digital Print’ is often used for lower quantities and flexibility, though can be slightly more ‘varied’ in shades of colour.
‘Litho Print’ is mainly used for larger volume and pretty much guarantees standardisation in colour from print run to print run.
Successful full colour design hinges on the individual design elements being shipshape before being brought together. We’ve got that. Together we can create design, recognise and perceive which elements need more (or less) attention and then go onto realise that into a tangible product.
For a subtle yet quality finish, Embossing is a process that screams quality. ‘Embossing’ and ‘debossing’ are the processes of creating either raised or recessed relief images and designs in paper and other materials. An embossed pattern is raised against the background, while a debossed pattern is sunken into the surface of the material. A combination of print and this can be a real work of art in our opinion. Embossing alongside single colour print or parallel to a metallic foil work well, and we are here to help you get the best out of this process.
