Behind every printed masterpiece there is a process and a technique. Each style of printing uses different materials and methods which require the proper tricks of the trade. having a unique printed design will make all difference when you are trying to stand out amongst your competitors, and at Boss Image, we ensure the highest quality printing techniques:

Embossing/Debossing: Both processes involve making a metal plate and a counter. The plate is mounted on a press and the paper is stamped between the plate and counter. This force of pressure pushes the stock into the plate, creating the impression.

Lamination: Lamination can be a liquid that dries to a tough gloss or dull surface, or it can be a film. Both adhere to the surface to protect it and give it a sheen or a muted effect.

Foil: To get the gold /silver stamp, a foil layer is affixed to a certain material by a heating process.

Silk Screening: A printing technique that uses a woven mesh to support an ink-blocking stencil. The attached stencil forms open areas of mesh that allows ink to transfer onto the material.

With Boss Image, your Ottawa printing and design specialist, we are ready and able to implement these printing techniques for any of your marketing/design materials!
