The beginning of Fall has us thinking about one of our favorite holiday traditions: spreading joy and good will with beautifully printed and tactile holiday cards. From Thanksgiving through New Years, there’s no more memorable way to show your gratitude for another successful year.
Packaging projects are the most intricate and complex for a printer to produce. Custom packaging is also often a consumer’s first impression, therefore, it needs to be executed at the highest level of quality and consistency.
Screen printing is a process by which an image is imposed onto a specialized mesh (screen) creating a stencil. Inks or coatings are pushed through the apertures in the mesh by way of a squeegee under pressure and transferred onto a printing surface. With foil stamping, a design is transferred onto a substrate via a thin metallic, translucent or opaque film using pressure and high heat. The image to be stamped is etched in relief on the plate so the design is raised, rather than recessed.
