The Braille system is a set of raised dots that can be read through touch and is a system used by blind people to read and write. This service is most commonly requested by our Pharmaceutical customers where we re-produce text in braille on our cartons where required.
Micro text printing is another anti-counterfeiting technique we can use on our cartons. We can print micro text down to size 0.6pt, which makes it too small to read with the naked eye. This makes it very difficult to reproduce when attempting to counterfeit cartons.
In addition to all over Gloss, Matt, or Silk varnishes, we can print dual varnishes. Often referred to as Spot Varnishes, this process is used to enhance specific areas of the carton’s artwork.
Embossing / De-Bossing
These processes create either a raised or sunken pattern to provide a contrasting textured element to the carton.
Coin Reactive Inks
This is an anti-counterfeiting measure we can use. This ink provides an opaque finish that when scratched with a coin, reveals hidden text or logo which confirms that the carton is authentic.
A pattern varnish can form part of the graphic design of a carton or can additionally be used as a security element to reinforce the authenticity of packaging items.
Soft Touch Varnish
This results in a soft feel / tactile finish to the carton
This is widely used on Premium Packaging to give that luxury look and feel. Foil Blocking is frequently combined with Embossing and De-Bossing.
