Professional Design, Typesetting, Letterpress and Digital Printing Service


PrintLife® print your job with the care and attention it deserves.

Thermography is a process that is achieved using
traditional letterpress printing coupled with a thermographic ink.

The areas selected for raised printing are printed with inks that
do not contain dryers or hardeners so that they remain wet
during the application of powder; This ink is dried
or hardened later during a heating process.

The powdered sheet is then fed into a radiant heating
system, where the powder will swell in size
to give a raised effect.

Thermography is commonly used on wedding invitations,
letterheads, business cards, greeting cards, gift wrap,
packaging and can also be used to print braille text,
or as an attractive option for high quality
Diplomas or Certificates printing.
