Printing Styles

 We are proud to offer the following printing styles; underlined words are hyperlinked to examples:

Digital $ – flat printing; perfect for light colored papers
Offset $-$$ – flat printing; can be used on dark papers
Thermography $-$$ – printing style that uses powered resin heated on wet ink (offset) to raise the text and designs.
Foil Stamping $$-$$$ – colored foil on a film-backed material that adheres to paper with a heated die.
Letterpress $$$-$$$$ – plates make a deep impression in paper that is soft in texture and thick.
Engraving $$$-$$$$ – printing where the plate, usually copper, raises the paper with pressure.
Embossing $$$-$$$$ – colorless engraving that creates a raised, colorless image.

For all printing styles other than digital, a separate plate must be made for each color.
