Special details and processes

Lavorazioni speciali in copertina

 “We value your prints through attention to detail”

Starting from the details of the product is a business philosophy. We give value to paper by embellishing each print with our optional, meticulous and elegant details, allowing our customers – editors and companies – to take care of the details according to an industrial, yet custom-made, philosophy.

Our task is to restore efficiency to the production chain with the strength of an almost a 60-year old tradition where the boundary between quality, craftsmanship and industry has never been lost.

The cover, both for a magazine and a catalogue represents the business card of your brand, of what you want to tell and it is precisely from the covers that our press masters have identified a series of options to make it more harmonious, balanced, attractive.

The avant-garde technologies and the experience of our printing masters allow us to offer special processes capable of enriching the covers of each magazine and highlighting further elements through the folding of the covers. Realisable on the first and back cover, they can be folded in particular ways, such as into a window or a Z, inwards or outwards

Embossing is a particular technique that allows you to modify the paper’s surface, creating a raised effect that is clearly visible to the eyes and equally perceptible to the touch. This effect is obtained thanks to a specific dry printing technique and it highlights some details of the print.

Thanks to the efficiency of our technologies, we can enrich printed inserts, adding elements with the help of different processes.

  • Pre-stapled: elements already set up with pins and inserted into stapled products through the application of one or more metal pins.
  • Removable glue point: products added on single pages of the interior through the application of a removable glue point.
  • Marking reverser: type of special insert that allows you to browse the markings in the opposite way to the opening side of the printout.

The Pantone colour is a special colour, in addition to the four basic colours of the four-colour process. This process gives prominence and greater brilliance to certain colours. The Pantone colour can be used to bring out an element of the cover, an internal page or a label. The processing is also applicable to rotary printing.

Hot foil stamping gives some elements of the printout a metallic finishing effect. The most classic ones are gold and silver, but you can also choose other colours or additional special glitter effects. The processing takes place through the traditional cliché etching and consists in depositing a thin metal foil on a portion of the printout so as to highlight it particularly.

To make your print unique, we offer different types of painting.

  • UV varnish: can be matte or glossy. This type of processing is generally used to create contrasts and emphasise particular surfaces by depositing glossy and opaque paints. The union of the two varnishes is unique, giving life to the drip-off, a hybrid varnish.
  • UV screen printing: this process is characterised by the particular brilliance it gives to images. It allows you to paint, with extremely high precision, individual details of a printout giving them importance and exclusivity.
  • Hydro varnish: “machine” paint used to give shine and protect the printed part from scratches and external agents. This paint is water-based and can be matte or glossy.
  • Soft Touch varnish: this particular painting technique is applied to the whole print ensuring a soft feeling to the touch.

Lamination protects the printed subject while keeping the content and quality of each product unaltered over time. Both glossy and matte lamination is applicable.

The die cutting is a process used to cut paper or cardboard in a specific and extremely precise shape. This is the case of processing on the cover with adhesive stickers or packaging for the food industry. In addition, thanks to a lower, non-cutting sheet called “creaser”, it presses the paper and allows easier folding.
