Offset printing

Offset printing allows high-volume printing, making it a suitable printing technology for paper and cardboard.

The printing of this machine is done by an ink roller that prepares aluminum plates, cylinders and rubber webs and transfers the image by pressure on the material.

Digital stamp

Digital printing transfers images directly from the file onto the material using ink. It is suitable for small runs and small sizes. The process is fast and qualitative. Digital technology eliminates the need for offset plates. Images are printed directly with toner or liquid ink. Once applied, the ink is absorbed into the paper through a high temperature process.

Screen printing

This printing method differs by using a screen, where printing is done by filling the holes in the screen with ink. Screen printing is suitable for corrugated cardboard, plastic, leather and other materials. This makes it possible to customize various advertising materials on which other types of printing techniques cannot be used. The use of this printing method is more limited than offset printing, but the technique is suitable for many more materials, including souvenirs and promotional items.

Hot stamping

To make a warm print, it is necessary to set the foil on the machine together with a metal cliché with text or logo. By pressing the foil, print what you want on the material. This method provides metallic tones that cannot be achieved with any other technique. The material used should not be too thin like paper. Many customers choose this technology because it makes their packaging look interesting, attracts attention and creates a more luxurious brand image.

Dry print - pregge

The dry seal is a method similar to hot stamping. Images take on a more vivid form. Metal pregge is used, thanks to which the writing is done without inks, leaving a relief print by pressure.

This method can be used for a logo on packaging, which will attract the attention of customers in a window shop.
