One of the methods to achieve a raised effect on paper is through thermography. This method capitalizes upon the melting properties of slow-drying ink and uses a special polymer or resin powder to produce a raising lump on flat paper. In this kind of printing, materials are printed with slow-drying ink devoid of any hardeners, which mingles more easily with the polymer powder. The powder is applied onto the sheet, mixes up with ink and then the entire sheet is momentarily exposed to high temperatures, usually in an oven or with the use of a heat gun. The temperature melts the mixture of ink and powder, creating dense liquid, which then solidifies and forms a raised mass in the desired pattern, usually an inscription.
Such a technique indeed involves a complex procedure, but the results are clearly worth the effort. Thermography allows you to print just anything you wish and in any manner you wish. Raised inscriptions and patterns are glossy, eye-catching and add a touch of class to an otherwise dull and ordinary product.
