IMPORTANT INFORMATION Printing information Fine details, small fonts, and trademarks can smear or disappear. In the case of multi-coloured printing, a colour-binding proof of the provided data is mandatory. Printing methods: 4-c digital printing: Paper/cardboard, boxes, foils, labels 4-c designs are available at attractive prices even with small quantities. Register differences cannot occur. The colours are always compiled from the 4-c process. special colours in accordance with HKS or Pantone can only be approximated. Boxes: Applying a white background to the motif, as is usual with silver boxes in pad printing, is not possible. In these cases, transparent inks are not opaque and therefore often do not achieve the desired colour tone (can look dirty). Please also note that negatively recessed elements will appear in box colours in print. On the other hand, this can result in a very elegant effect thanks to the shining through e.g. of a shiny box. Slight streaking may be visible with extensive colour designs. Due to the bled-off round surface structure of the product, there may be a slight distortion of the printed image. Foils: Some parts of the sealed seams cannot be printed (see imposition layouts). 1–4-colour flexo: Foils In full-surface printing, register differences are possible to an extent. A fine unprinted line over the foil is a result of the block ends meeting. Colour rubbing on the sealed seam is also possible in full-surface printing. Designs with extensive ink coverage and metallic colours should be varnished to protect them from colour rubbing (counts as an additional print colour). In printing technology, breaks in the screen cannot be avoided. The tolerances for this are: – Flexo printing 3% Due to a very coarse screen (30 l/cm), we would recommend that sweet wrappers and flowpack packaging are printed entirely without a screen. Sweets: In full-surface printing, a white edge (each of 1 mm) remains on the side at the end of the wrapper ends. Due to the block ends meeting, a fine white stripe runs across the width of the paper. Note: Halftone motifs only after a printability check. A colour-binding proof of the data provided is required with multi-colour screen motifs. 1–4-colour offset: Paper, cardboard An attractive price for larger print runs. Printing of special colours in acc. with HKS and Pantone is possible. Fluorescent inks cannot be used. 1–4-colour pad: Boxes, dispensers Register differences are possible to an extent. The double printing of individual colours may be necessary for full-surface motifs (counts as an additional print colour in each case). Slight scratches and unevenness may appear due to the material. In printing technology, breaks in the screen cannot be avoided. The tolerances for this are: – Pad printing 15% Laser engraving: No halftone motifs possible. Top-quality customising is possible even with small quantities. Laser engraving involves the varnish being removed, exposing the shiny surface. With full-surface lasered motifs, the cast of the box material becomes visible. Slight scratches and unevenness may appear due to the material. In the case of coloured boxes, a coloured shadow can appear in the engraved picture. Embossing: No halftone motifs possible. Elegant embossing (high-relief embossing). Extremely elaborate designs are not always possible. Sleeve: A slight distortion is possible on rounded parts.
