Thermographic Printing - Raised Ink

What is Thermography?

Thermographic printing or "Thermo" for short is a traditional printing process in which paper or card is printed with slow drying pantone inks that are applied with a specialist embossing powder to make the ink raise when heated.

Once the powder is applied they are processed through a vacuum system that removes all excess powder from the uninked areas. They are then inserted into a radiant oven via a conveyor to apply the heat. Once cooled, the ink becomes solid and has a plastic like raised feel with a subtle shine.

Thermography is very popular for the following products:
Wedding Stationery
Business Stationery
Business Cards
Greeting Cards
Gift Wrap

It has also been used to print braille text.
