Foil stamping uses heat and metallic film in a specialty printing process that produces a shiny design on paper, vinyl, textiles, wood, hard plastic, leather and other materials. Foil stamping – also called hot stamping, dry stamping, foil imprinting or leaf stamping – can be combined with embossing to create a special effect on business cards, book covers, gift cards, office folders and a wide range of professional or personal items.
The process of creating a 3-D image or design in paper and other ductile materials. Typically accomplished with a combination of heat and pressure on the paper. This is achieved by using a metal and counter die that fit together and squeeze the fibers of the substrate. This pressure and a combination of heat "irons" while raising the level of the image higher than the substrate to make it smooth. In printing this is accomplished on a letterpress.
Thermography is a post-print process. It can be inline or offline as long as the ink is wet. Thermography powder is applied to the sheet of paper and is then vacuumed or shaken to remove excess powder. The sheet is then heated, causing the powder to melt and leave a raised effect. Thermography is commonly used on letterheads, business cards, greetings cards, gift wrap and packaging.
Liner tape is a transfer tape used for either laminating, mounting or for bonding lightweight and medium-weight materials. Liner tape can be used in plastic-to-plastic and metal-to-metal applications, for overlap or splicing of paper, film, foils and textiles or laminating and bonding nameplates. A machine application process is used at Prestige Graphics.
Folding/gluing can be accomplished as an inline machine process, allowing both steps to be accomplished at once. Applications include packaging, boxes and folding cartons, table tents, presentation folders and more.
Prestige Graphics offers a multitude of display options – including counter cards, ceiling danglers, point of purchase and retail marketing solutions. From handheld corrugate structures to life-size stand-ups, Prestige can provide a custom solution to meet your display needs.
A laminate process that uses a layer of plastic film on either side of a substrate, sandwiching between the plastic layers and sealing with heat and/or pressure to prevent damage. Laminating paper stock can prevent creasing, wrinkles, stains, smudges, abrasions by grease, fingerprints and other environmental factors such as sun damage.
Steel rule die cutting is a common process used to cut a range of sheet materials including paper, cardboard, rubber and plastic. Most standard cardboard boxes and packages are made using this relatively straightforward technique. In addition to cutting shapes, steel rule die can be used to create creases, perforations and slits.
Laser cutting technology works by directing an output high-power laser, by computer, at the material to be cut. The material then either melts, burns or vaporizes away leaving an edge with a high-quality surface finish. Advantages over mechanical cutting are: lack of physical contact, precision and a reduced chance of warping. Some materials are also very difficult or impossible to cut by more traditional means.
The use of sharp steel rules to cut special shapes like labels, boxes and containers from printed and unprinted material. Die cutting can be done on rotary or flatbed presses.
Litho laminating entails a poster stock paper that is glued to corrugate. This paper can have up to a full color photographic quality print on it without the look of the corrugation of the cardboard. After the poster paper is glued onto the box, it is assembled with the rest of the container.
Thermal die cutting, or "hot kiss cutting" is the process of melting pressure sensitive vinyl with a magnesium cutting die that has been chemically etched.
The "kiss-cut" graphic may then be hand weeded and masked to produce a "pre-spaced" graphic.
Thermal die cutting is particularly beneficial for large quantities of graphic images, due the increased production speed over plotter cutting. The weeding process is also quicker and easier on thermal die cut images than plotter or blade cut images. This is especially important on vinyl film decals, and signage, such as small car dealer decals.
