SMOOTH, SILKY AND GLOSSED TO PERFECTION, THESE BUSINESS CARDS SAY IT BETTER
Thermography or “Raised Ink” technology form a relief image when a special resin powder is poured on wet paint, which is then placed under the influence of high temperatures to fuse the ink above the surface of the sheet and solidify it in the form of droplets, creating a lens effect. Business cards with Thermography or “Raised Ink Business cards” have become particularly popular in recent years. They are beautiful to look at and pleasant to touch.
Raised ink can be a complementary technology to silkscreen printing, allowing you to create three-dimensional images on the touch surface of the treated material. Crystalline powder, a transparent powder help give your business cards an engraved look. It comes in a range of crystal clear, white, gold, silver and other colours.
The thermographic printing technique raises the surface of card – creating an effect that’s very similar to how engraving appears. The process involves a sprinkle of powdered resin over wet ink. We complete the process by then heating the resin, which binds it onto the card’s surface. The ultimate result that thermography creates are fonts that are textured, glossy and wonderfully different.
Your business demands a high profile and polished image –
for which thermography business cards say it all, beautifully.

SMALL TIPS, FOR THE MOST POWERFUL OF IMPRESSIONS:
The thermography process is ideal for creating a beautifully tactile experience, and it easily brings to life the finest or most complex of patterns, designs or images. In our experience one of the most effective ways to employ thermography is to match the colour of the ink to the colour of the card. The result of this is then an impressive, understated message, and contemporary design feel.
The thermography technique is ideal as an alternative to die-stamping. However thermography doesn’t work well with notably slight font faces.
