Last but not least...

In today’s market of manufacturing and distribution, it is absolutely necessary to differentiate yourself from the competition.

To gain an advantage in terms of advertising and print products, we have a series of finishing procedures at your disposal.

1. Coating:

As mentioned previously in the section technology -> offset printing, as well as for our individual creations, there are several finishing procedures for your print products. Our inline capabilities (procedures applied during the printing process) include water-based coating in a matte, glossy, iriodin effect, drip-off effect, flat or spot style, up to a format of 700 * 1000 mm. The application of UV-coating in differing layer strengths is possible up to a format of 600 * 740 mm.

An important aspect of refinement is the choice of material, due to the fact that not all paper or foil is able to retain coating finishes. Our project managers will gladly inform you on these issues.

A finishing technique called film lamination is available in all formats, matte, glossy, scuff free, soft touch and with various structures. This process involves overlaying the print material with a thin film of polypropylene foil.

2. Die-cutting, embossing and perforating:

To let your creativity run free, we can further process your printed and refined projects. The possibilities involve die-cutting in various forms, blind-embossing or perforating. Common applications thereof are folders, envelopes, portfolios, etc. Die-cutting requires the creation of a die-cutting mould, which can be used repeatedly. Factors such as displacement, grooves, material strength, etc. must be taken into consideration with regards to the cutting die. We will gladly consult you on these matters, and if necessary, design a draft version of the cutting form, for a small fee.

Blind embossing (positive or negative) requires an embossing die for the implementation. Not every material and/or material strength can be utilized smoothly. For die-cutting larger volumes or specific formats, we use a so-called label-die cutter. The special die-cutter comes at a slightly higher cost; however, this figure is balanced out due to the large order quantity.

3. Hot-foil embossing:

Hot-foil embossing is arguably the most refined finishing technique available. Similar to blind embossing, a specific embossing die is manufactured, and in addition, a foil is layered between the heated printing plate and material during the printing process. The exceptional special effects using gold, silver, or effect-foils are stunningly unique; they cannot be replicated using any other techniques.
