Southside Print London Bridge has recently produced digitally printed posters, mounted to foamex, for Barberini Fashion. Business cards were also printed in black and white using a thermographical process for the SE1 business.
Thermographic (‘thermo’) printing
Thermo printing is another printing service offered by Southside Print and the process results in a slightly raised, textured and usually high gloss finish to the areas which have been printed. The printing technique is an inexpensive way to raise the level of type or graphics on the surface of a printed sheet without going to the expense of embossing. The result often has an ‘orange peel’ kind of texture, which is most commonly high gloss. The thermographic process itself involves sprinkling powdered resin onto the still-wet printing ink, which results in the powder sticking to only those parts of the paper or card which have been printed. The sheet is then passed through a heater unit which melts the powder and fuses it to the printed areas, resulting in the innovative finish. The process if often used on things like greetings cards, stationery and invitations and has even been known to print Braille text, due to its raised nature.
