Decorating Options

Digital Printing
Ideal when 4 color process graphics are requested on jobs less than 2,000 pieces.  No need for expensive film, proofs and plates required on offset printed jobs.  Pantone colors must be converted to process equivalents.  Typically laminated with gloss film for durability.

Offset Printing
Conventional way to print 4 to 6 colors in higher quantities.  4 color process most common for photographic look.  Requires color separated, right reading, emulsion side down film negatives and a color proof.  If art supplied on disk, film and proof charges will be added.  Typically laminated with gloss film for durability.

Screen Printing
Ideal for 1 or more Pantone colors required in moderate quantites (100 to 3,000)  Ink is pushed through a stenciled mesh screen onto cover material.  Decorating process can be used on wide variety of cover materials.

Foil Stamping
Ideal for small quantity single color jobs or when metallic graphics are required.  Foil is transferred to material with a heated die.  Die costs quoted separately based on square inches of coverage.

Deboss / Emboss
Dies and pressure used to create depressed – debossed, or elevated – embossed image.  Embossing requires a set of male / female dies and is much more costly and far less common than debossing.

Usually done using heated 18 pt loose type to transfer foil to material.  Dies not required.  Also can be done economically when digitally printing.

Many of these graphic techniques can be combined for stunning visual affects.
