Cascade Group can now offer on-site thermographic printing from our secure production facility in central London, further enhancing the portfolio of printing services that are locally available to our clientele.
Special wet inks are applied to the paper and this is covered in a powdered polymer that sticks to the wet areas. The excess is then vacuum removed and the item heated within the press. This causes the substrate to ‘bubble’ and expand before drying, resulting in a raised appearance and feel to that inked area.
Thermographic printing creates a glossy raised surface to all or parts of a material giving a high quality and upmarket finish. It is commonly used on business cards and letterheads for traditional institutions and luxury brands.
