Printing Methods


Re Story Scandinavian employs over 100 specialist-based printing machines / industrial machines. We are able to print on all possible products. We have full control and can guarantee high quality printing. All deliveries are made on your terms based on your specifications and wishes. We are constantly updating and constantly looking for new ways to develop and improve our technology.

Printing methods we use

Pad Printing
Tampotryck is an indirect way of printing where the ink is transferred via a silicone dummy (tampon). The big advantage of this printing technique is that the pad is flexible and forms itself according to the item you want to press. This means that it is possible to press for example round, hollow and other bent objects. Starting costs are charged for tampa pressure for the machine to be installed and for a plate of layers to be created (kliché). These layers are filled with ink absorbed by the pad. The top layer, which dries slightly, becomes sticky and causes the ink to stick to the pad. When the pad is moving towards the object, it also wipes the slightly moister side and then it becomes a little sticky. Finally, the ink is stuck on the object and not on the silicone duo, since the silicon dunner has properties that prevent the ink from being sucked up by the pad.


Screen Printing
Screen printing is a printing method used for graphic and industrial purposes. Textiles like print plates and solar cells can be printed with this method. When screen printing, a fine layer of netting is stretched over a frame that has a light-sensitive layer. The logo you wish to print is placed on the frame during exposure so that the dark surfaces can be washed afterwards. Once the ink has been used to the frame it is brushed over the fine mesh with a rubber scraper. The ink penetrates the mesh on the washed areas and presses against the object.

Laser Engraving
Laser engraving is a popular technique for providing promotional items or corporate gifts with a logo or even with a person's name (personal). The laser engraving machine is controlled via a computer system where the desired logo or text is programmed. This computer-controlled laser is very precise, which makes it possible to engrave relatively small and fine patterns. The advantage of laser engraving your promotional items is that the engraving is scratch resistant and has an elegant appearance. Laser engraving can not be done in color. The color depends on the material and its lower layer, as the laser burns the top layer, thus making the lower layer visible.

CO² Lasergravyr
Laser engraving is a popular technique for providing promotional items or corporate gifts with a logo or even with a person's name (individualization). The laser engraving machine is controlled via a computer system where the desired logo or text is programmed. This computer-controlled laser is very accurate, which makes it possible to engrave relatively small and fine patterns. The advantage of laser engraving your promotional items is that the engraving is scratch resistant and has an elegant appearance. With CO² laser engraving, different materials can get good and detailed engraving. Materials that can be engraved are stone, glass, plastic, ceramics, leather and various types of wood. The color depends on the material and the substrate of the material as the laser burns the top layer and makes the lower layer visible. The engraving is durable and gives the product a luxurious impression.

Sublimation Printing
Sublimation is a printing method which means that a digitally printed image is gasified into the material by means of a heat press. The special sublimation dyes have a special quality that allows them to be transformed from a solid state to a gas state at a particular temperature. This happens without the colors reaching a floating state. Sublimation pressure is only possible with polyester that opens at a particular temperature, so that the dyes can be absorbed into the material. When the material is cooled, the color will become denser and the pressure will become extremely safe. The image is not located on the surface but is rather a part of the surface.

oFFSET
is a widely used printing technique where the color-borne information is transferred from a printing plate to the printing material (normally paper) via a rubber-coated cylinder ("offset", set off, which refers to the indirect printing method).

Digital Printing
With digital printing, it is possible to print full-color logos directly on an item. It is no problem to get printed toned fillings and color transitions. Digital printing technology has been fully incorporated and become a common choice among traditional printing methods. Technology has also become increasingly popular for businesspresent impressions. The colors of the digital file are converted to CMYK color tones with digital printing. The advantages of digital printing are that you, even in full color, can print quite fast, despite small amounts. However, it is not always possible to get accurate PMS colors, as is the case with tampo and screen printing. Colors consisting of CMYK may differ marginally from the PMS scales on your color palette. Digital printing is also an environmentally friendly alternative, as there are never any waste residue of colors.

Stamping
Embossing is a printing method where ink is not used and works in the same way as relief printing. The difference is that a thin layer of foil is used for embossing that gives the relief a permanent, glossy finish.

Relieftryck
Is a printing technique in which ink is not used, which is why it is called just relative pressure. The simple impression in the material gives the item an elegant look

Doming
Domestic stickers are vinyl stickers with a full-color print that get one
layers of artificial resin poured over. This creates a scratch-resistant, round sticker with a very elegant look. Domestic stickers can be manufactured in almost any shape and size. Thanks to a wide variety of foil and printing methods, almost any effect is possible. Our dome stickers are waterproof, color resistant, UV-proof, self-adhesive and durable.
