Thermography – A printing process where the ink is raised on the paper. #Thermography
Thermography printing, also known as raised printing, is a printing technique that creates a raised or embossed effect on printed text or images. It involves using a special powder, called thermographic powder, which is applied to the paper before the ink is printed.

Thermographic printing uses a special ink, on an offset printing press similar to a AB Dick. Then a powder like resin is applied, on a special equipment, that is heated and causing the printed area to puff up, to raise on the surface of the paper.
That raised printing gave it a 3D like feel effect.
Often used in
Thermography printing is often used for wedding invitations, business cards, letterheads, and other high-end printed materials. It can be done in a range of colors and styles, making it a popular choice for adding a touch of elegance and sophistication to printed materials. However, it is important to note that thermography printing can be more expensive than other printing methods due to the additional materials and equipment required.

The printing process begins by applying ink to the paper using traditional printing methods such as offset, letterpress or digital printing. Once the ink has been applied, the thermographic powder is sprinkled on top of the wet ink. The paper is then heated using a special machine, causing the thermographic powder to melt and rise, creating a raised, three-dimensional effect.
The process works by using a combination of heat and pressure to melt the thermographic powder and create the raised effect. The result is a print that has a tactile quality, making it visually appealing and easy to read.
