Today, the most popular technology in the production of outdoor advertising is large-format (interior) printing. With its help, high-quality images are obtained, which are printed on rolled materials. Print sizes can reach up to 6 meters in width and tens of meters in length "East-West" provides large-format printing for advertising structures on various materials. Large format printing is the best option for outdoor advertising. It is colorful and effective with a low cost of manufacture.
OFFSET – a classic way of printing, popular in modern printing. Provides good quality of printed products, high detail and transmission of halftones. It operates mainly in large editions, is used in the manufacture of full-color Newspapers, brochures, glossy magazines, brochures, promotional products.
SMALL-FORMAT SCREEN PRINTING It includes everything that is flat printing on various substrates, especially on plastic bags, as well as on paper (paper bags) and cardboard, the printing format does not exceed 100x140cm.
LARGE FORMAT SCREEN PRINTING Large-format screen printing is Similar to the previous one, but with flat printing of large formats exceeding 100x140cm.
PRINTING ON SMALL ITEMS Print on pens, lighters, key rings and other Souvenirs. For printing on round subjects using rotary semi-automatic.
EXTILE PRINTING (CLOTH PRINTING) Fabric printing in reels, lengths of machinery table printing, mechanical, textile, carpet machines, machines with rotating cylinders.
SCREEN PRINTING FOR LABELS AND METALS
SCREEN PRINTING ON GLASS t is used in the automotive industry and in the production of electrical appliances. There are also special applications, such as printing on glass products such as bottles..
STAMPING is a printing process related to post-printing finishing of products, which is produced by manual, semi-automatic and automatic stamping presses, based on hot or cold pressing of metallized or pigment foil or polymer film with spraying of the desired substance to improve the attractiveness of the packaging, label or promotional products.
The process is divided into types:
FOIL STAMPING, in which between the heated cliché and the material (paper, leather, plastic, etc.) the foil is stretched and pressed. Under the influence of heated cliché metallized or pigment deposition lags behind the carrier film and is fixed with an adhesive layer on the surface of the embossed material.
BLIND EMBOSSING - stamping with clichés to get a print with a smooth surface (for example, on textured paper, on the skin). Unlike foil stamping, foil is not used, but special tape can be used to obtain better smoothness or gloss. The process operating temperatures are generally lower than those of foil stamping to avoid overheating and spoilage of the material. Stamping without foil - giving relief (to the observer) a compressible material between the plates for a convex (matrix) and punch (contrarily, second part). The image is convex. Made either cold or heated plates to 60 degrees Celsius.
STAMPING WITH FOIL - as a rule, the process is carried out in one blow (impression), that is, the transfer of the foil and giving relief occurs simultaneously. Under normal conditions, this process is divided into two steps: first, the foil is pressed, the second run is given relief. In this case, foil stamping allows to reduce the time spent on the circulation twice. The only obstacle is the high cost of the cliché, which is technologically more complex than usual, and the ability to work in one blow to the press operator. a high temperature of 110-160 degrees Celsius and a press capable of performing such work, for example, Bobst or Gietz is required.
DEBOSSING - the process of drawing an image below the material level (that is, away from the observer). This way you can do on paper, for example, spectacular traces, as if to push sheet. A rarely used term, as well as a rare process in Russian printing sphere.
TEXTURING — the process involves drawing an image with a cliché on a smooth material, usually metallic paper, to simulate foil stamping. Also used to simulate the skin of certain breeds (such as cliché with a pattern that simulates the skin of a crocodile, etc.).
THERMAL TRANSFER is a thermal method of image transfer. This technology, which has received great development in recent years, allows you to apply the image to almost any surface: on a fabric base, leather, clay and porcelain. Today this technology is the most accessible and simple. In addition, the cost of manufacturing Souvenirs for this technology is quite affordable.
Thermal transfer technology:
hermal transfer is considered to be the best method of modern times. Although alternative technologies have recently been developed, they are more expensive. Thermal transfer allows to obtain reliable and durable images of high quality.
EMBROIDERY — is a method of applying a persistent image on t-shirts, Polo shirts, baseball caps, hoodies and other textile products.
For embroidery on clothes in a special computer program, you can set the size and area of the picture, the number of colors, the density of stitches and other parameters. Depending on the properties of the fabric, you can embroider the logo either directly on the product or on the Chevron, which is then welded to the product.
The advantages of machine embroidery logos:
Elegant application; Long-lasting application; For the accuracy of the image transfer using embroidery, it is necessary to take into account a number of technological features:
It is undesirable to use contrasting colors for embroidery; On some parts of the finished products-pocket, pants belt, jacket collar, the flap on the baseball cap-embroidery, in principle, impossible to apply; Suitable for embroidery and leatherette, but only on a fabric basis;
LASER ENGRAVING is the process of applying an inscription, logo, drawing, pattern or symbols to hard materials by removing the surface layer. Laser engraving allows to apply marking on industrial products, to make signs and plates, to put inscriptions on premium products, to apply images to souvenir and jewelry products, to make business cards from metal, to make nameplates, etc.
The advantages of laser engraving include:
— high speed of application - a small image can be applied in just a few minutes; — during the laser engraving is not damaged the product on which it is applied; — laser beam perfectly displays any, even the smallest details, so the image is very clear; — the impact occurs on the minimum area of the material, which has a positive effect on the accuracy of engraving.
Among the disadvantages, laser engraving is not suitable for all surfaces, some of them, such as plastic and some polymers, can be deformed under the influence of temperature, but it is not typical for the metal and metallized film that we use in our production.
Laser engraving makes any thing, whether it is an engagement ring or a keychain, unique.
