THERMOGRAPHY (RAISED LETTERS)
Thermography, though quite similar to basic Offset Printing, is really a different process of printing altogether. Most people refer to it as Raised Letters. This printing process is done on an Offset Press, which then applies an additive to the ink. Once applied, the paper is sent down a conveyor in order to heat up the paper. This generates a reaction in the ink causing it to rise, like dough. As the paper cools, the ink retains its raised effect.
Thermography is primarily used while printing business cards. For example, in most instances, business cards are run 4 different cards at a time. Then a slitter (paper cutter) will separate these runs into business card size in a matter of seconds per set of 250, 500 or 1000. Thus being able to produce literally hundreds of sets of business cards per day. With the combination of a few printers with these capabilities, we are able to actually print thousands of sets of business cards per month.
Additionally, letterhead and envelopes can be printed usingThermography, although it is not recommended for use in laser printers.
