The relief, a pleasure for the senses
The relief printing ennobles any printed: it always feels the emotion that arises when we meet something nice and we stop to admire the details. A package or a label that features a captivating appeal combined with sophisticated engravings or seductive shapes, has the power to catalyze a sensory experience that involves both sight and touch.
The relief printing is a complex work, where the printer demonstrates its expertise.
We use a cliché on which is engraved the reverse of the drawing respect to the final result. The back print can be obtained on a soft surface adapted to the cliché, or on former made with special resins, in order to highlight the embossment to the best. The dry print can be hot or cold: in the latter case, you get an embossment deeper and long lasting, or a more brilliant plating. The use of computerized engraving systems allow artistic reliefs, characterized by carved or multilevel effects.
