Spot UV Printing
November is due to see the installation of our brand new Autobond Digital Spot UV Machine. We will provide a bit more information in the next issue, but this machine not only brings more of the work we produce in house to aid turnarounds and efficiencies but, utilising the latest digital technology, produces stunning results on a number of substrates.
This, along with the flexibility offered by our H-UV Printing Press, ensures that, not only are the finished results looking top rate but that we are able to offer more versatile and bespoke solutions for our clients.
Adding Spot UV to your work is a great way of setting yourself aside from the competition and giving that real professional look to your business and marketing material.
The Technical Area – Laminating Prevents Cracking
There are certain products such as folders and thicker covers on booklets which can, in certain circumstances show cracking along the folds.
This is not something printers can have a lot of control over and is down to the make-up of the material. We have always worked hard to ensure this is minimal – we only buy branded paper and card. Any folded printing on card is scored properly prior to folding, but modern materials are more prone to cracking partly due to finer and thicker coating methods.
This is something which has a much better chance of being visible if there are areas of heavy ink coverage running across folds and, although it is sometimes possible to design around it, the more effective solution is to opt for a laminate which will not only prevent your work from cracking but give it a much more professional look and feel as well as adding longevity.
Nowadays we do not just offer traditional gloss and matt laminating options but other finishes such as anti-marking or soft touch laminates are becoming incredibly popular.
If you would like to discuss this further then just ring or email and one of our sales team can offer you all the expert advice you need.

Mailing, Distribution and Fulfilment
