Thermography Printing Process

Thermographic Printing is a special technique relying on heat to print letters or create images on a sheet of paper. This printing technique is also a post print process done inline with the printing.

Special thermography powder is sprayed on a paper sheet after it is removed from an offset printing press. The powder is then vacuumed off of the sheet and is left only where there is an image, or printed ink. The sheet then travels through a heat tunnel; causing the powder to melt and leave behind a raised image like on business cards, or envelopes.
