The Essential Types of Printing for Paper, Paper Board, Corrugated, Labels and Other Substrates:
Gravure printing is a direct printing process using an etched cylinder printed directly to the printing medium with superior reproduction. Gravure is used in packaging and publication printing for high-volume printing requirements.
Flexography is a process which utilizes a flexible relief plate utilized in label, flexible packaging and the corrugated printing industries.
Offset printing is a very common used process with a plate transfer to the image onto a blanket cylinder, then onto the substrate. Offset can produce a vast range of products with sheets and roll applications with a lot of flexibility with excellent reproduction.
Screen printing is not as widely used as the other printing processes. It is perfect for non-traditional substrates like fabric, stickers, signs vinyl, posters, point of purchase, etc. With the screen process, you can produce just any quantities with any material.
Wide Format uses large inkjet devices to print graphics onto large sheets or rolls of substrates including paper, vinyl, point of purchase, floor graphics, apparel, fabric, etc. This relatively new technology incorporates advanced software, design, cloud computing offering endless versatility and cost-effective for short and medium printing runs. The inks are printed through inkjet printing heads and then cured by oxidation, heat or UW.
Digital Printing is the process of printing digital-based images directly onto a variety of media substrates. There is no need for printing plates with direct transfer of the image. Digital Printing is the fastest growing area of printing due the ease of set up and flexibility. Digital is evolving with improved print quality for high-quality images and variable data requirements.
