Four Color Process Printing Four color process printing is different from spot color printing – because while spot color takes specific PMS colors to directly print the design; Four color process uses Cyan Magenta Yellow K(Black) and blends different percentages of each of those 4 colors in order to give us different gradients within those colors. This sort of printing works really well when you are trying to print an image of someone’s face or a photograph because this type of printing allows you to get all of those different skin tones or varying shades within the images. Typically four color process printing is done on white or very light colored shirts.
Six color Process Printing Six Color Dry Offset Pail Printing Machine guarantees high printing accuracy with features such as automatic loading, flame treatment, pre-registration, auto unloading, etc. This Pail Printer includes centralized lubrication system, Micrometer lateral and radial plate cylinder adjustment. Complete vacuum system with pump that holds container on mandrels at neccessary position adds one of the important feature to our pail printing machine. This pail printer can printing about 800 impression per hour with a suitablity to print from 1 litre pail to 20 litres of pail.
Eight Color Process Printing This gives us the ability to separate jobs so that they print with better reproduction due to our ability to manage ink delivery. Line work and halftone screens can be split to separate print units for better print reproduction. Dense vivid colors are reproduced with pinpoint halftone dot accuracy. Using our dry dot proprietary screening technology, our graphics department creates separations that look like traditional 4/color process separations, but run clean on press limiting normal wet on wet ink contamination. We can also split inkwells for those jobs that require smooth blending of several colors on the can. All of this is done on white base coated, clear brushed, or specialty base coated rigid aluminum cans.
Better color separation flexibility (halftone screens and line copy of the same color can be split)
Dry dot proprietary screening technology is applied in our Graphics Department which allows higher quality graphics to be reproduced
Digital ablated plate making center located in Lebanon, Kentucky. Provides for fast revisions to graphics during new can artwork approval
Split ink wells technology allows even more colors to be used on some jobs, and also allows for smooth blending of multi colored backgrounds
