So you thought printing was just about shoving a sheet into the printer, clicking print, and getting your printout all in a few seconds? Well, inkjet printers are usually that simple to use, but there is much more to printing than printout out letters, bills, photos, etc. There are several different printing techniques that can give you impressive results, like these for example.

Historical printing techniques

One of the oldest printing techniques is the Wood Block technique where a reverse image is actually carved into wood and then stamped or pressed down on the printing sheet. This method is still used for block printing fabrics by hand for traditional Indian textiles using vegetable dyes.

Another printing technique involved individual letters made of wood or metal, used for typesetting by hand, which could help print books and large documents relatively quickly. Then there are methods of printing such as photo typesetting, which is now more or less obsolete and offset printing which is still widely used.

Engraving

This is a method of printing where the paper is literally engraved; where a depressed impression on the printing surface creates the image or letters. The image is transferred to Rotogravure cylinders with a steel base and a copper layer which is then used to print on paper to create the distinctive grooved letters. This printing technique is also known as debossing.

Embossing


emboss printing
Embossing Example (Image Source)
Basically the reverse of engraving, embossing creates a raised, 3D printed effect on the paper. The printing could be of a thicker style, raised in way that can be felt and not just seen; or it could be the printing surface itself that is raised so that it appears to have been engraved from the reverse side of the paper. Dry embossing or heat embossing are different techniques used to create specific results.

 

Lamination & Varnish

This technique basically creates a protective layer over the print surface to prevent running, tearing and to create a sheen on the surface. This laminate finish makes the printed material water resistant and smooth to the touch. Not unlike lamination, a varnish finish is a liquid coating that is added to the printed surface to create a matte or glossy finish.

Foil stamping

Foil Stamping Adds Elegance (Image Source)

Mostly used in commercial printing, this process uses gold, silver or other metallic foil is used to overlay the print surface. Machines called hot foil stampers are used to transfer the foil or other opaque films to solid surfaces. Books, pictures, napkins and pencils often use this kind of foil printing process.

Thermography

Rather similar to other printing techniques such as engraving, thermography is a more cost effective process. Here ink is laid down, thermography powder is used and then heat is applied to raise the image off the print surface slightly.

Inkjet printers and laser printers

Inkjet and laser printing are processes of printing that all of us are familiar with. These are also the most widely used printing solution for non professional printing requirements. The inkjet printing technique basically sprays the fluid ink on to the print surface to create documents, images, graphics and more. Laser printing uses dry ink and heat to create images or printed documents that are fused on to the surface of the paper or stock sheet.

Depending upon the requirement of your print project, you can use the right printing technique for optimal results. What cool projects do you have lined up? We’d love to hear. Share with us in our comments section or even via our Facebook or Twitter pages. Following us via our official social networking pages or subscribing to our newsletter helps connect to us and also informs you about upcoming store events and discount sales.

"Pink doesn't yield, it survives!" 

National Breast Cancer Foundation Fundrasier

Small steps lead to big changes. We love this saying. After all, it was not with one, but everyone's help, who participated in our fundraiser for the National Breast Cancer Foundation that allowed us to sign and a mail a check for $13,168 last October.

By working together through donations and social media sharing, we were able to help their "pink warriors" pay for mammograms and support their education and hope programs.

In honor of this great achievement, we made a "Pink Doesn't Yield, It Survives!" infographic to share with everyone who put on their pink gloves and helped make this National Breast Cancer Foundation fundraiser successful. 

 

Discover How Your Support Helped Fellow Pink Warriors

Did you know that the risk of breast cancer increases with age? Or that 85% of breast cancer occurs in women with no family history of it?

Numbers and facts like these usually aren't common knowledge. That's why the National Breast Cancer Foundation offers educational services to their pink warriors as well as mammogram help.
 "The best way to fight breast cancer is to have a plan that helps you detect the disease in its early stages.  An Early Detection Plan enables you to be proactive about your health by scheduling routine breast self-exams, clinical breast exams and mammograms, depending on your age and health history." - National Breast Cancer Foundation
Your help didn't stop there. Please look at our infographic below, and you'll see exactly how your donations gave hope and spread awareness:

Thank You For Helping!

So next time you think one small action won't make a big difference, remember this campaign. It was with your help that we were able to donate $13,168 to the National Breast Cancer Foundation last October. Whether it was by liking our Facebook page, retweeting on Twitter, re-pinning our Pinterest images, or purchasing ink or toner on our site - we thank you.

Remember, October isn't the only time of the year to fight against breast cancer. Help spread awareness by sharing this post with friends, family, and other loved ones.
