Also known as a kinegram or picket-fence animation, a barrier-grid animation involves a die cut outer sleeve with a printed insert that contains two separate interlaced images. As the insert slides in and out of the sleeve, the alternating images are displayed within the die cuts of the sleeve, thus producing a simple 2-frame animation.
The sophisticated design of this engraved identity suite required personal attention at every step of the process. We employed a delicate balance of engraving, letterpress and screen printing, drawing on each processes’ individual strengths to craft these lavish and tactile pieces.
At DataGraphic, we make custom hang tags of any size, shape and quantity and in any material. We produce tags using sourced or provided looped and knotted string, satin and grosgrain ribbon, eyelets, and gourd clips for use in retail, promotions, gift giving and other occasions.
Each year, international branding agency, Stag&Hare, creates a custom promotional piece to share with clients and friends to showcase its creative capabilities. As a promotional piece, the finished honey packaging needed to wow and DataGraphic was called upon to deliver the white glove, multi-process magic we have become known for in the printing industry.
We brought the luxe on these resort marketing materials, combining UV offset, aqueous coating and foil stamping printing processes with unmatched saddle sewn bindings and hidden magnetic closures to wow anyone lucky enough to get their hands on these promotions.
We had a lot of fun producing these custom printed coasters for the TWA Hotel at JFK Airport in New York City. Fittingly for this project, the scalloped edges of the coasters threw the whole cocktail lounge feel over the top.
Here is a stunning laser cut Plexiglass invitation we created for the premiere of an Adidas and Daniel Arsham short film collaboration. Made from clear acrylic Plexiglass and screen printed in white ink, the invitation was then laser cut into the iconic HOURGLASS shape for which the artist has become synonymous.
A custom party invite that’s worthy of an unboxing video. When the NFL came back to us to produce another custom party invite and sleeve, we knew we would have to up our game. After the glowing reviews and feedback from our prior season, we suspected that an expectation to once again wow was looming. […]

Die cutting involves cutting paper – usually one sheet at a time – with a die. This process can cut an entire sheet into a shape, put slits in a folder, or cut a window into a page.
Digital printing allows your designs to be printed directly onto a variety of substrates. Modern digital presses use electroink digital ink technology.
To achieve an edging effect, colored pigment or foil is applied to the edges of a short pile of stock after the pieces have been printed.
Embossing (or debossing) uses heat and pressure to raise (or lower) paper fibers above (or below) the surface of the substrate. Artwork is transferred onto a metal die, by routering, photo-etching or hand-tooling.
Engraving is a pressure process that transfers ink directly from an engraving plate onto the paper. Automatic engraving presses can run at speeds between 4,000-5,000 impressions/hour.
Foil stamping uses pressure and high heat to release a thin film onto the substrate. The image to be stamped is etched in relief on the plate (so it is raised, rather than recessed).
Letterpress is a relief printing process where the image to be printed is raised above the base of the plate. Pressure is applied to push the image into the paper, on either a cylinder or a platen press.
Offset lithography is the most common printing method. The inked image is transferred from the printing plate to a rubber blanket and then onto the paper. All litho presses basically work the same way, whether they are sheet-fed or web, which uses a huge roll, called a web, of paper.
Screen printing or serigraphy is essentially a stencil process whereas the image is imposed onto a specialized mesh (screen) which allows the ink to be transferred onto the printing surface. Inks or coatings are pushed through the apertures in the mesh by way of a squeegee under pressure.
