7 Spot UV Process
It is a silkscreen printing process that enhances printed products’ dazzling effect by partially coating UV varnish on the carton’s surface.
8 Ice & Snowflakes
The ice and snowflake effect is a fine sand and hand feeling formed on the printed product’s surface after the ink silkscreen is printed on gold paper, silver paper, laser paper, and PVC irradiated ultraviolet light and cured by UV light effect. It presents a thin layer of snow or ice-like effect on the surface of the printed product. It is commonly called “snowflake” (larger pattern) or “freezing point” (smaller pattern) in the industry. This craft is visually characterized by subtle patterns, strong three-dimensionality, luxury, and elegance. It is widely used in cigarette and wine boxes, wall calendars, gift box packaging, or other exquisite printed products.
9 Reverse Frosted
The reverse frosting process is a new type of printing process that has emerged in the past one or two years. It needs to go through several special primers or varnish treatments;
Some people call it a reverse-up light process,
Think of it as a new technique for partial glazing. This process is to print the printed product according to the standard color sequence after the ink is completely dried or cured, using an offset printing connection (or offline)
In this way, a particular primer layer is printed on the local area that does not need to highlight high brightness. After the primer is completely dried, the UV varnish is applied to the printed matter’s entire surface in a full-page manner. In this way, a cohesive reaction occurs in the area where the UV varnish and the primer are in contact, forming a small particle-like ink film, forming a matte or matte surface;
In the UV coating area where no primer is printed, a high-gloss mirror is formed. Finally, the surface of the printed product forms a local high-gloss and a local matte low-gloss area. Two utterly different gloss effects to achieve high-contrast effects of partial images,
Embellishment and highlight the glossy mirror image and text.
10 Embossed Bronzing
This process shows a more metallic and three-dimensional bronzing method through the change of the bronzing plate. Through the uneven changes of the embossed patterns, the graphics and texts present a metal relief-like texture. The bronzing graphics and texts jump out of the plane, bringing a more substantial visual impact.
11 Laser Transfer
Laser transferring has brilliant visual effects and can effectively improve the quality of packaging. This process can print full or partial transparent laser effects on plain paper with a smooth surface and has changed the history of laser paper printing or paper printing in the past. The surface is compounded with the exclusive laser film to show the laser effect’s processing method. The laser pattern can be flexible and changeable.
12 Lithographic Paper
The lithographic paper is a combination of several finishing technologies. For example, spot embossing, holographic laser anti-counterfeiting, vacuum aluminum, paper-plastic composite slitting, and nest printing. The paper is gorgeous and eye-catching. The unique visual effect can not copy plagiarism and facilitate consumers to identify the authenticity intuitively.
