How is a 3D print created?

Posted in Blog, News

UV inks dry almost instantly and it is relatively easy to achieve printing in the same place. Layer by layer, the print can be raised above the surface and given a whole new, tactile dimension. Although customers perceive this type of printing as 3D printing, it would be more correctly called relief printing. This print enriches all the surfaces on which it is found. It is used for commercial purposes to make business cards, invitations or exclusive printed products.

In packaging printing, it is used to make Braille or to decorate packaging. Users also often use it in the advertising industry when making signs inside a building that print Braille to help the blind, or when highlighting some elements on nameplates such as the company name.

By combining varnish as a base and a color finish, this type of print looks very exclusive and will enrich cheaper bases such as forex, which look luxurious with embossed printing.

A very common and effective combination in printing is the printing of the background with a 3D structure that is used as a background and combines with the classic printing that conveys the message. 3D structures can be printed in color or with varnish. The varnish enriches the substrate, and leaves enough space for the main press that transmits information to stand out on the substrate. This type of printing is used in packaging and can very often be found on invitations.
