When extra special real estate offerings come along, there’s no better way to communicate luxury, uniqueness and class like the rich, tactile nature of print.
Before, during and after an event, beautifully printed collateral helps boost the overall experience for attendees and communicates a level of sophistication and quality about your organization.
Packaging projects are the most intricate and complex for a printer to produce. Custom packaging is also often a consumer’s first impression, therefore, it needs to be executed at the highest level of quality and consistency.
Screen printing is a process by which an image is imposed onto a specialized mesh (screen) creating a stencil. Inks or coatings are pushed through the apertures in the mesh by way of a squeegee under pressure and transferred onto a printing surface. With foil stamping, a design is transferred onto a substrate via a thin metallic, translucent or opaque film using pressure and high heat. The image to be stamped is etched in relief on the plate so the design is raised, rather than recessed.
