In the printing process of thermography, or “raised printing”, a special powder is added to the ink printed on the paper. The printed piece is then heated, or “baked in an oven” until the powder and ink dry to form a raised effect on the paper. The biggest difference between thermography and flat printing is in the shine & texture that can be readily seen & felt. Like flat printing, any combination of PMS colors may be used as well as “metallics” such as golds and silvers. Thermography is similar in appearance to engraving, its more expensive counterpart. And, like flat printing, thermography can be combined with most other printing processes, such as,
lithography (flat printing),
embossing or debossing.
It is a number one choice for a “rich-looking” textural piece without the strain on the pocketbook!!
In addition to “regular” thermography, Eagle Printing offers a special process to “lock in” the color of a thermographed piece when it is run through a laser printer. Laser Safe thermography ensures that the color won’t bleed or run. It is a necessary process in today’s world where just about every piece of stationery runs through a laser printer at some point.
