Luxury cosmetics boxes, pharma packaging, high-end commercial jobs: today, producing sophisticated or custom print products such as these can be a challenge, especially if you are on a budget.
But not if you are using a Speedmaster XL 75 Anicolor 2 with double-coating and UV technology. Our 2018/2018 Christmas Card is living proof of the high flexibility of this machine: the front of the greeting card was produced in just one pass, including the inline debossing.
In the first two printing units, opaque white was applied to the foil-laminated sheet to emphasize the elegant character of the card. In addition, the designers wanted to subtly interrupt the gloss or silver effect in the image in order to show it at its very best.
Drip-off is a very easy way of achieving matt gloss effects and effectively combining special-effect and protective coatings: the glossy coating is repelled at the areas of the sheet previously wetted with matt coating. The coating drips off and cannot form a glossy film. This is how the desired matt gloss effect is produced.
In the last coating unit, a debossing plate is mounted instead of the coating plate and the impression cylinder is covered with a rubber blanket. Inline debossing is a way of achieving very different effects, such as a partial paper texture. The pleasant feel has a tangibly greater impact on the recipient.
