UV PRINT


Digital printing has a very wide range of printing. Both on rolls and on sheets. An example is the UV printing method. Performed with plotter printing with UV inks, which are heated with lamps, with appropriate radiation, immediately after application. This technique enables durable matt printing, the use of chosen varnish, and the use of all kinds of self-adhesive foils and more. The biggest advantage is: printing almost on everything, resolution up to 1440×1440 dpi, vivid colors and the possibility of applying refinements. All this gives enormous possibilities of printing and upgrading (refinements). Below is a short description:

  • USED MATERIALS: self-adhesive films such as: PVC, PE, PET, PP, reflective, mirror, holographic, glitter, etc., self-adhesive papers: semi-gloss, flash, non-adhesive paper: semi-gloss, flash, textiles, plexiglass and PVC plates;
  • COLORS: foils in various colors, including gold and silver, CMYK and white print;
  • PREPARATORY COST: low;
  • IMMUNITY TO ATMOSPHERIC CONDITIONS: high;
  • ABRASION RESISTANCE: yes;
  • CUTTING / PLACING: using a plotter – without a die;
  • UPGRADINGS: UV varnish all over or selective: glossy or matte and convex, glossy, white print;
  • MINIMUM PRINTING QUANTITY: from 1 piece.
  • FREQUENT USE: noble stickers: for food products, cosmetics, invitations, promotional labels, rating plates, barcodes, warranty seals, outdoor advertising, car stickers…

ECO-SOLVENT PRINT


Another method of digital printing done with the use of a plotter. The advantage is: fast, cheap printing, with vivid colors and in quality up to 1440 × 720 dpi. This method is most often used for large format printing. Below is a short description:

  • USED MATERIALS: self-adhesive poured foils, banners;
  • COLORS: foils in various colors, including gold and silver, CMYK print also white and silver;
  • PREPARATORY COST: low;
  • IMMUNITY TO ATMOSPHERIC CONDITIONS: yes;
  • CUTTING / PLACING: using a plotter – without a die;
  • PROPERTIES: liquid lamination, silver plating (stickers), white imprint, fittings (banners), gel;
  • MINIMUM PRINTING QUANTITY: from 1 piece.
  • FREQUENT USE: colored stickers: for cosmetics, food products, markers for machines, promotional labels, advertising labels, barcodes, banners, warranty seals …

LASER PRINT


Digital printing method mainly used on self-adhesive paper. This is the most popular method for low-volume orders. The greatest advantage is speed and high detail (2400dpi). The following is a brief characteristic:

  • USED MATERIALS: self-adhesive papers: matte, semi-gloss, flash, non-adhesive paper: matte, semi-gloss, flash, satin, chalk, etc., self-adhesive foils: transparent white and silver
  • COLORS: CMYK;
  • PREPARATORY COST: low;
  • IMMUNITY TO ATMOSPHERIC CONDITIONS: low;
  • CUTTING / PLACING: using a plotter – without a die;
  • PROPERTIES: glossy UV varnish, foiling;
  • MINIMUM PRINTING QUANTITY: from 1 sheet.
  • FREQUENT USE: stickers: for writing products, school supplies, mailing, invitations, promotional labels, barcodes, leaflets, posters, business cards…

SCREEN PRINT


The most universal method of printing. It is used on both flat and cylindrical surfaces. Screen printing is performed with: water-based paints – odorless, without PVC and formaldehyde, giving vivid and intense colors; and plastisol paints – thick, which give a high level of coverage, plastic, and after firing in the oven it gives resistance to high temperatures. The following is a brief characteristic:

  • USED MATERIALS: self-adhesive papers and foils, plastics, metals etc.
  • COLORS: Pantone;
  • PREPARATORY COST: medium;
  • IMMUNITY TO ATMOSPHERIC CONDITIONS: high;
  • RESISTANCE TO MECHANICAL AND TEMPERATURE DAMAGE: high;
  • CUTTING / PLACING: plotter or punch;
  • PROPERTIES: UV varnish, gilding, silvering, white, fluo;
  • MINIMUM PRINTING QUANTITY: from 50 A4 sheets.
  • FREQUENT USE: stickers: signage, industrial, promotional labels, advertising, car…

OFFSET PRINTING


The most popular method of printing on all types of sheet materials: from paper through foil, stickers to cardboard. The advantage is the perfect reproduction of colors regardless of the substrate and high quality of print – detail. The downside is the very high cost of the prepress, which makes the offset used in high volume productions. The following is a small characteristic:

  • USED MATERIALS: all kinds of sheet materials;
  • COLORS: CMYK and Pantone;
  • PREPARATORY COST: very high;
  • IMMUNITY TO ATMOSPHERIC CONDITIONS: yes
  • CUTTING / PLACING: plotter or punch;
  • PROPERTIES: UV varnish, gold and silver with Pantone – with sieve;
  • MINIMUM PRINTING QUANTITY: from 1000 A4 sheets.
  • FREQUENT USE: high volume stickers: for food products, cosmetics, promotional labels, leaflets, posters, catalogs, newsletters…
REFINEMENTS
Available on sheets
UV varnish

The refinement, which similar to foiling, aims to protect the print from UV radiation, moisture and abrasion. Available in glossy or matte version. In contrast to laminating, we can use it on the whole material but also selectively or on convex surface.

Foiling

Covering with matte or glossy foil to protect stickers from UV radiation, moisture and abrasion. Used only on whole surface.

Silvering / gilding

Refinement of the self-adhesive label with silver eco-solvent print. Printing with Pantone colors: silver and gold, used both in offset and screen printing.

Lamination

Protection of eco-solvent printing against UV radiation with a liquid laminate applied by a roller.

White print

Overprint and overlay in white. Available in print: UV, eco-solvent and screen printing.

Gel labels

Stickers printed using the eco-solvent method with a very thick layer of gel applied.
